be sure to use a very shallow depth of field, so any sign or sight of the non seems of the fake wood floor are not seen. This also lessens the seem for the wall / floor meeting to each other. I am familiar with the flooring you are talking about, during college I worked at a Lowes.
Other cool things to look for. Bails of straw, broken chain link fencing for backgrounds, venetian blinds, broken windows sometimes sold for 10 bucks. Some of the prefab wall applications are neat. They are less than a 1/4 inch thick sold for 20 bucks for 4x 8 sheets, come in multiple colors applications etc. Scratch and dent bath tubs. In the building materials area there is metal corrugated roofing, fiberglass corrugated roofing. Not always a bad idea to have remnant carpet around to help slow down dirt etc getting onto the backdrops.
PVC piping in plumbing can be used to keep cables that sometimes get stepped on from being stepped on and to protect them. You can also make platforms if you know how with pvc. Its light, strong and cheap.
Clear sheets of plexiglass are a great way to get a shiny floor for models to stand on white or black seemless paper and it cleans up nice. Another cool backdrop is the painters cloth in paint, sometimes you can call painters for used cloth and do an even swop. Large sheets of burlap are pretty cool too, I usually get mine from a concrete supply store, cheaper and bigger. Long large rolls of mylar are fun too, the bounce light alot, its cheap and or it creates unusual backdrops.
Just my 2 cents.
