Need Help With A Floor Style


First time to post in the flooring section. Need a little help with a customer's floor. My local flooring supplier cannot find what I need.

Here it is:
I have a kitchen to do.
Not that big, 14' x 15'
The customer wants a 50s Diner style floor.
They picked out a grey and white checked floor.
No problem, your thinking. So was I. My local flooring supplier has the style, in sheet vinyl. That won't work. They have 3 dogs, each about 150 lbs. I think their claws will tear up sheet vinyl.
I was thinking VCT. They were good with that. My supplier says they no longer make solid grey in VCT. Also says they no longer make solid black in VCT. Or, solid white in VCT.

Then I thought about LVT. They are good with it, so am I. Supplier says they don't make those colors either.

So here I am. Asking for help. Does anyone have an idea for this floor. They don't want ceramic and they definitely want solid colors.

This is doable. They aren't asking for the world.

Thank you for your assistance.

Haven't tried it with flooring, but self-adhesive vinyl wall base is pretty much the same animal in that respect. I routinely use contact cement with that, and it sticks for about forever.

Yes. This is the peel n stick. Still an option, just one that isn't my favorite. I may have to go this way.

I appreciate the help.

Re: Need Help With A Floor Style


The Johnsonite, was my first thought. Actually Armstrong, but the same product. They don't have a solid black or solid white. Armstrong used to. I'm sure of it. Apparently they got rid of the solid black, white, and grey. Probably about the time they took out the asbestos.

The American, I have not seen before.

Peel and stick works pretty well unless the floor gets real wet for awhile. Some do glue it down for a more durable install.
