Creative ways to spruce up an apartment kitchen floor
December 4, 2013 4:56 PM Subscribe
I rent an apartment with a water-damaged kitchen floor. The flooring has permanent stains on it that I want to hide. The landlord won't pay for the full-scale subfloor repair that would be necessary to renovate it nicely. I thought we could just paper it over with a new layer of vinyl flooring but a workman took one look at it and said he couldn't work with such a damaged floor, without a major renovation. I wonder what the best cheap way would be to just hide the stains and make the kitchen look civilized?

Ideas we have had: Some kind of mat? Rug? Painting the tiles?
It seems like vinyl flooring
is out of the question because of the poor, lumpy condition of the floor but would also consider just trying to put it in anyway.
Any help much appreciated.
