I am interested to know a comparison in cost between these flooring options.

Thanks for the great article. I think that epoxy flooring is a great option that is easy to maintain and clean.

Not sure why you omitted lino from the article - the ultimate commercial flooring. The commercial ranges (like Forbo's Marmoleum mentioned above) are extremely resilient in the home, probably never needing to be replaced because of wear (unlike the products produced solely for the residential market that usually only last about 10-15 years). Much better for the environment - no nasty products used in their manufacture. Much nicer under foot than hard concrete or other masonry products. I have it installed in my kitchen and laundry (renovated together) and will add to hallways, utility areas in our planned extension.
