How do I cover up old lineoleum floo cheaply??


I am currently renting a manufactured home and will be here for at least another 1and a half yrs. The kitchen and bath rooms have linoleum floors that UGLY and Old! I cannot stand looking at them and the owner won't pay for changing them. Soo... I need an inexpensive ( cheap) way to cover them. The kitchen of course is the the most important !

    I saw an idea on this site, use contact paper to cover old ugly floors that are a in a rental or lay scatter rugs down. Or you could get permission from the owner/ landlord to put down a " paper bag floor" found on this site. Good luck.

    Perimeter glued sheet vinyl is inexpensive. Often you can get bolt ends at a discount.

    We put down peel-and-stick tiles in our bathroom shortly after buying this house. We wanted an inexpensive fix. My husband and I said that it was a temporary fix and we would re-do the floor in a few months. Well, it is now over 2 years and those peel-and-stick tiles still look great. So, our temporary fix turned itself in to a permanent fix. Good luck.

    Floor paint is your friend. Be sure to seal it well - if you are creative you can also stencil.
