A black-and-white checkerboard linoleum tile floor adds inexpensive punch to the Weinhardts' white kitchen. Dozens of colors are available in this eco-friendly flooring made of linseed oil, wood flour and other renewable materials, for $2 to $6 per square foot.
Even wood-look laminates, which cost less than hardwood, come in colorful stain colors. And if you own an older home, check under existing laminate for hardwood. A pro can refinish wood floors for $2 to $4 per square foot.
