Carpet & Lino

I have bought a roll of Lino for my kitchen floor. I was wondering could I use left over Lino and put on walls instead of tiles or splash back. My oven has glass lid. So linowont be exposed to heat from the hob

Personally I wouldn't it would melt as a splash back and can't take that much heat

Not recomended, this would become a fire hazard, wouldnt take much with it being exposed to the high tempratures that your cooker will be giving off

Glass is a conductor you'd be very unwise to do such a thing

Yes you can put it on the walls, however I would avoid using it as a splash back behind the cooker, as you cannot guarantee the required heat resistance.

As long as there is no risk of heat exposure to the vinyl, due to the glass lid from the hob, I can't see why there would be a problem. There are plastic tiles on the market for sale that would be the same. It's all about personal preference like for example I wouldn't like to use vinyl on a wall nor would I fit it to someone's wall but if it works for you and is safe go for it.
