My kitchen has a double layer of linoleum (one over the other) flooring. Right in the middle of the room is a huge spot where the sub-floor is exposed from the table and chairs being moved around for years.
I've read very good ideas on how to remove the linoleum. My question is once I get to the sub-floor what's best to use on it? Linoleum again? Adhesive tile squares? I need a clue.

I would not use Adhesive tile squares, they do not stay glued to the floor. Porcelain tile is a type of ceramic tile, it is manufactured using a series of unique clay minerals.


Porcelain is a very resistant and durable product, it has a very hard surface and a solid structure.

You may want to consider laminate flooring if you want a wood look type floor. I have had Pergo flooring in my kitchen for 8+ years and it has held up well. It cleans up with vinegar water.

I would go with real wood or a laminate wood material. It depends on your budget, as real wood is often a little more.

The best flooring for you depends on your lifestyle. It's just my elderly hubby and me here (with the recent addition of his 46-yr-old son,) so the adhesive wood-look linoleum tiles hubby put down a couple of years ago are holding up nicely. This flooring got put down in the kitchen, bathroom and a small hall between the two.


The linoleum tiles were reasonably priced. Since hubby did most of the work himself and only paid a helper $50, it worked out pretty well for us. For a family with kids and heavier traffic, you might consider something tougher like ceramic tiles with grout, or wood. For heavy-duty usage, you need heavy-duty flooring!
