I'm having my kitchen renovated and polishing the floor boards in the living area and hall. The house in from 1981.
I thought the floor was lino, but it turns out that it is terracotta tiles over a white plaster/concrete looking sheet. It will be okay to remove, however how will the boards come up? The boards are a nice tassie oak.
I ask because I have heard that the sheet is nailed in, and the floor will look like it has a hundred nail holes in it.
If it is going to look terrible, I will consider just using a laminate throughout the house. Or tile the kitchen, which I don't think I want to do because it will look disjointed.
What to do?
