We're making progress. Now for brand recs?

Ready to bite the bullet. Needs to be floating due to asbestos tiles underneath. Lumber liquidators has a mid priced cork floor but I -really- do only want to do this once and have heard a few horror stories about the company and product. Keep coming up with "Wicanders" but they're pricey....

In one bedroom there is also actual holes in it (like quarter size). One living room has beige VAT (anyone have any ideas to put...
