Thumbs up Aftermath

The marmoleum is installed in my trailer and it looks great. It wasn't cheap having it professionally done, they worked all day and back for a few hours the next morning, but so glad we didnt have to contemplate doing it. I saved a bit off my "budget" (I have a budget? I think that ran away a few months ago) by not going with my original "gotta have" stainless steel countertops. I used the same marmoleum on my counters and it looks great. Just now in the process of acquiring the retro style metal trim around the edges.

I went with Marmoleum Graphic sgraffito. black with off white flecks for appropriate 50's retro look.
My shelves are also lined with it.

Appreciated all of the input.

Hey Mary
Can we please see some pictures of your floor? I'm thinking about installing Marmoleum as well and would like to see yours.
Mike

I won't get any decent photos until I can get the trailer back from the shop, hopefully within the next 2 weeks. Until then, its inside the shop with one shop light inside and no daylight coming in from the outside. But hopefully you can see something. There is paper taped in the traffic zone because work is still going on. I decided to use marmoleum for my counter when the custom stainless steel estimate came back high. I think it looks better with the original sink and it certainly will wear well.

Marmoleum comes in so many colors, I went with the black for drama and because I really liked it when I saw it in a high end project. We also have a lot of windows in the AS and it gets plenty of light.

Looks great. I too like the black. You achieved your drama. Look forward to other pictures.

Did the M go under the cabinets too? I was wondering about the weight M is deceptively heavy.

Your trailer is looking great and I too love Marmoleum. As a fellow Oregonian, I hope to see it in person someday!

Thanks everyone! Chomping at the bit to get my playhouse home so that I can finally start "dressing" it up and making it mine. It has to be my traveling office/home away from home by mid June.

I'm going to be looking for someone to upholster some dinette cushions if you know of anyone in the Portland area.
