Question

What flooring should I choose to replace 100 sq ft of linoleum in a cabin in snow country?

Subfloor will not be level. Concerns are ease of installation and a product that can take MUCH abuse. It's a DIY job.

Why not replace the linoleum with new linoleum?

There are many colors available, and is one of the "greenest" flooring materials you can use.

  • You can use sheet or tiles.
  • But tiling would be an easier DIY project.
