Went to Focus yesterday, and they had boxed strips (not tiles) of the
adhesive-backed wooden-look flooring. It looked quite good, and
should imagine it is relatively easy to put down, but is there
anywhere, where you can get something similiar, but coloured? Ideally
for my kitchen, I would like light blue, perhaps with a grain-effect,
but haven't seen anything like that around.

tho you did say, you reckon they're both easy to put down.
