Advantages Look great and not too hard to fit.
We went to Homebase and we chose their Sanctuary Vinyl Tiles - slate bodmin. They are advertised as having the appearance of slate. They come in packs of 11, an odd amount I thought, and each tile is 30.5cm square. They are 1.5mm thick and 1 pack of tiles will cover 1.023sq meters. Each pack cost £5.93, so armed with our tiles we headed home.
As these vinyl tiles are sticky backed there is no need to buy any glue or extras so the price of the tiles is really all there is.
Mark and I completed our kitchen floor in one weekend. This is probably a long while for an expert but we had never done anything like this before and even though I say it myself we made a good job of it between us! The tiles look great, they do resemble slate and of course they are much warmer underfoot. They've been down for a month now and we have had no problems at all. Even when the washing machine decided to flood the kitchen. The tiles stayed firmly in place, I was well chuffed (not with the washing machine, that's another story!).If you are looking to lay new flooring I would 100% recommend Homebase Vinyl Floor Tiles. They come in a variety of prices starting at £2.99 so they wont break the bank and as you are only dealing with a small tile each time they are relatively simple to fit. I'm sure we couldn't have fitted the flooring ourselves if it had been one large piece of vinyl. What we also liked was the fact that we didn't have to empty the whole room, we just moved things around and when it came to the fridge freezer and washing machine we only had to pull them out, lay the tiles and then push them back. It was all very convenient.
Summary: A great way to spruce up your floor.
