    Default Roll of lino?

    I know quite a lot of people use lino to lie hutches etc so I was wondering whether anyone knows where I can buy some on a roll rather than the tiles? I want it to line the floor of my budgie's aviary. I have tiles in there at the moment but I think the sand I use on their floor will be easier to sweep up if I have one continuous sheet. I've checked homebase and B&Q but they only seem to sell the tiles

    Thanks!

    Hiya

    I got mine from a local flooring place, I emailed and asked if I could have any off cuts and explained what it was for, he said he had the size to cover 5 x3 that I could have for a tenner. He also said he had some in the skip but it had just been emptied. You could also try for places like freecycle.org.uk or contacting plumbers as they often rip out old lino.

    Hope that helps

    all my local carpet shops have rolls of lino off-cuts outside the shop, priced up individualy. They can also cut you a length off to size. You can shop around, but I paid about 20-30 for just over 8 foot by 6ft for my shed...which my buns lived in for a week, before I missed them too much and moved them back to the dining room

    I just went to a carpet place. Not one of the main ones they wanted like 60!! Managed to find somewhere for about 30 told them it was for a rabbit and they very kindly (well one lady, the other man wasn't so kind and wanted to sell me it) went out back and got the boys who work there to find a bit I could have for free! Very very kind woman

    I hadn't thought of asking around for offcuts, that's a good idea! I don't need very much so it might be my best bet.
    I had a look on eBay but postage seems to be quite expensive. I guess I'd have to find a seller nearby so I could collect!

    Thanks everyone

    I went to my local flooring shop to ask for an offcut and he gave me a full sided roll of lino, good quality stuff too, for 10. Enough to do the kitchen floor at the rabbit cage He'd been sent too many of a colour he didn't sell as much of so wanted rid. Carried it to my front door for me too
