go to your local lowes and purchase a prodcut called goo off (oil based) or lift off (oil Based) and depending on what type of flooring we are talking about, if it's oil just use mineral spirits.

How to Paint Vinyl Flooring?

Painting vinyl flooring is a good way to change flooring that is in good condition but needs to be updated. Quality vinyl flooring does not need removal to obtain a new revitalized look. A few instructional steps are needed to start a fairly straightforward task of painting vinyl flooring. This project is economical and allows for personal creativity. To paint vinyl flooring, you will need: Clean vinyl flooring Floor paint Sand block Deglosser (optional) Several cloths Paint rollers (several) Paint primer Step 1: Remove the gloss. Rub down the flooring using a sanding block to remove the shine property from the vinyl. This step is important because it provides the paint with a rough surface to adhere to. Step 2: Optional step. Use a deglossing agent found in hardware stores to remove any remaining gloss on the vinyl. Apply the anti - glosser to a cloth, then use on flooring where needed. Allow it to penetrate for 10 minutes and following product instructions whether to rub-off or not. Step 3: Prepare the surface. Make use of a paint roller to apply a thick layer of primer to the dry vinyl flooring. After the first coat has dried, put on a second coat of primer. The primer allows an even surface for the paint to hold to. Step 4: Paint the flooring. Utilize a roller to apply the paint to the dry floor. The roller provides an even distribution of color on the vinyl. Any areas where the vinyl pattern is visible should be given an extra coat of paint. Step 5: Repeat painting. Apply multiple coats of paint to obtain the desired look. All coats should be applied after flooring has dried from previous applications. Step 6: Seal the look. Use a roller to apply multiple layers of paint sealant. The sealant protects the floor from damage due to regular wear and tear. Painting vinyl flooring is completed after sealant has dried. Tips Sanding and deglosser can be used together or solo Stencils can be used to create an original flooring design

Can you mix oil and acrylic paint together?

That's a bad idea - one is waterbased, the other oilbased. Oil and water don't mix. Egg tempera paint does, because egg is an emulsion. On top of that, oil doesn't adhere well to acrylics, so the paint will fall apart in time.

What are the pros and cons of using laminate versus wood flooring?

I would not recommend real wood flooring for a kitchen. You are better off using tiles. Real wood flooring can decay faster if you spill something on it. With laminate flooring you don't have to worry about that. However, wood flooring does look nicer. I would go with tile flooring for a kitchen and wood flooring for other rooms.
