We had to replace all the dingy brown 9x9 tile on the floor of the lower-level (walk-out basement). Fortunately, there was no asbestos. We got super-lucky on that one.

Anyway, after months of looking, we found a company based in the UK (NOT CHINA!) that has really nice sheet vinyl and vinyl tile, though only the sheet vinyl is suitable for MCM. And not if you are trying to do exact 1950s. But if you are trying to do updated 50s, as we are, try this company:
