Custom design in cork gives light and warmth to dark kitchenLaura wasn’t kidding when she said her new kitchen floor had to create a warmer, brighter space than the brown vinyl that once covered the floor in this room with very little natural light.
Something natural that was indoor-air friendly would also be a plus, Laura thought as she began to research different floors. Tile was her first choice. But the cement board required as an underlayment would have raised the kitchen floor much higher than the adjoining rooms of carpet, hardwood and slate.
She found a design – in cork flooring tiles – that she liked online, and selected colors for her own custom look.
Properly done, seams should not be an issue in linoleum installationQ. We are remodeling an older home and I was "sold" on Marmoleum, until I kept coming across questions about repairing seams which have buckled.
I want to use it in the bathroom floors, but I am really hesitant since reading all these questions about repairing the seams.
Have you had questions on this and/or how do you feel about using Marmoleum in the bathrooms?
A. Dear LM:
If you are using Marmoleum sheet goods that are installed by a contractor who is properly trained, you should have no problems with seams that need repair.
