Should I use an adhesive when I lay my new lino?

Not usually, but it I have used double sided tape around toilet pedestals, etc.

The trick with lino is to get it to the same temperature as the room before laying or cutting. Cold lino is horrible stuff.

And cut little at a time... or you might start swearing.

A lot.

And use a threshold strip for the doorway!

 I agree with everything 'Taf' said up there ^ I remember laying lino in the bathroom in Fairford

If it's any help, I laid the lino in the bathroom in our last house and found the quickest and easiest way to make it look really good was to buy some scotia moulding (you could use quadrant, as it's cheaper) to put over the lino round the skirting - covered a multitude of wobbly edges! ::)

I've added a link to the B&Q ones but I think we bought ours at a local joinery cheaper (and we used white scotia, which looked better).

Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

You can get plastic quadrant that lasts forever.
