Nice. Its cheap, and if you put a billion coats of poly on it, it should hold up to abuse.

We have a dark cherry floor with a wax costing on it in out kitchen. 8 years and it's worked out really well. Yes, the mastiff has left some scratches, but not as bad as I thought. The floor was in the house when we bought it, and I don't think I would've picked it myself due to cost, but it's been a really good floor. Even took a dropped full wine bottle that broke without a ton of damage. It butts up against the oak flooring that was original with the house and looks good.

Copper pennies. There is a lot about this online. Looks pretty sweet.

Cork floors have come long way, a flooring rep keeps trying to talk me into it for my kitchen. In your situation I would try to stick with one material for the two areas, the idea of having a transition is good, but having 3 flooring materials in a small space might look way too chopped up. For those with cork, what size, model, etc have you used?"Hurry up and finish your wine so we can go get us some milkshakes"

I dunno if this is the right app for it but if you got 30 yr old yellow shag carpets and no money painted plywood will look about 1000 times better
I seen it done in a country cabin where patterns were done in masking tape & stencil and then the whole thing given 2 coats of varathane and it looked pretty good and it was VERY cheap
