Kitchen floor
winthropite

After being in This Old House for nearly 40 years and never doing a thing to improve the kitchen (it has 3 pantries and a laundry room some of which are bigger than our first kitchen in a little Cape in the 60s) (the kids used to ride their tricycles in here in the winter), I think I'll put in a new floor.
This is to replace the "cast iron linoleum"circa 1940s or earlier that I am in the process of pulling up.
The floor leans a bit, and has one distinct bump.
I would like to put down that blue flooring you see in institutional kitchens and I have seen in one home kitchen,b/c I think I'd like it.
Or, maybe just nail down plywood sheets and paint with boat paint, which I have also seen and it looks nice and easy care.
I know these may sound out of the ordinary but hopefully there is a homeowner out there who has done one or both of these floor treatments and would offer their experience /advice about the process. Thank you.
