Entrance Stairwell Upgrade

It started with the question, "Why do they put carpet in the entrance stairwell?". I had a bunch of flooring left over after a stick house bathroom reno, so I ripped out the carpet in the wheeled house entrance and replaced it with the surplus lino. It was cheap and easy. I'm happy with the results.

That looks great!
We did something similar with laminate when we took all of the carpet in our coach out and replaced it with laminate.

Thats a great looking upgrade. Looks really rich & inviting. No more dirt spots on the verticle carpet from the toe of your shoes. I like the idea (can you tell?)!!!!

Love this and would like to tackle. Now for a stupid question - don't know much about linoleum. How do you hold it down, is there a specific adhesive? And is the trim held down the same? Can you find that type of trim at like Lowe's or Home Depo? Sorry for all the questions! It looks great and is a Project that I need to do as my carpet is coming unhinged a bit at the top of the steps! Thanks in advance for any info!

I used regular lino glue for the flooring and spread it with a trowel that has very small notches. You should use a heavy roller on the lino after it's down, but that obviously won't work in such a small area. I just rubbed and rubbed and rubbed with my hands. The trim is held on with contact cement. I used spray on contact cement. It's a lot easier to use than the stuff in a can that you spread on. I also used dark brown caulk along the permanent seams to stop water from seeping under the lino. Everything you need is available at Lowe's or Home Depot. Your best bet is to ask the person in the flooring department. A hint...I worked at HD for a short while. If you want to get advice from an associate shop on a Saturday between 10 am and 2 pm. That's when they have the best and brightest working. You may have to wait because they're busy, but it's worth it.
Go ahead, give the project a try. If it doesn't work you can always take it out and try again.

Caulking

When you caulk - only use "Poly SeamSeal" It cleans up with water and remains flexible (also available at HD)
