    Hi everyone,

    Were finally making the shed started yesterday :lol::lol::lol: woo hoo
    Anyway what can we use for the floor was thinking of lino but mom suggested the vinyl floor tiles that have a sticky back? You can get them in the pound shop. Do you think it would be ok?

    Thanks
    Kirsty

    I have seen a vid of a home made indoor rabbit cage that used these stick on tiles they looked ok

    I have no idea how good the stick would be from pound shops

    also with the tiles it would take some time to get them stuck right next to eachother so not bits fester in the gaps

    personally id go for lino or lion scraps from a flooring place, then you can take them out give them a good hose down and clean, also buns like a bit of carpet to sit on and keep warm, (might be worth advertising on your local freecycle for some spare flooring)

    Show us some pics when ur done :)

    Personally I wouldn't bother with the sticky vinyl tiles as they tend to lift up should they get wet. We used them in our downstairs toilet and they lifted up after a few moppings.

    You can get some really good hard wearing linos designed for industrial kitchens
