An attractive, durable floor doesn't need to be costly. You can cover linoleum with inexpensive vinyl composite tiles (around 57 cents each), available at home-improvement stores. These tiles cut easily with a heavy-duty utility knife, so corners and hard-to-fit places are not a problem.

To determine the number of tiles for your project, find out the room's square footage. Because these tiles are 12 inches square, you can easily convert the square footage directly into the number of tiles needed, but always buy a few extra to allow for mistakes.
