Rubber Baseboards?

I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get some cheap baseboards that are very easy to put on. I've seen them at my office building they look like they're a rubber material and they're glued on or stuck on with some type of adhesive, they don't look like they're expensive. I just need something I can put up in my little kitchen. If anyone knows what I'm talking about and knows where I can get them please let me know.

They are not expensive
You should be able to find them at your local home center or contractor supply
Larger hardware stores may also have them, if they carry trim and such
They come in a roll, so they may not look like what you think if you passed them in the aisle
They must be laid out flat for a few days (or a week is better) at room temp before you use them
They may also have smaller pieces that are flat
If you have a small room and don't mind more seams, you might see if they have the pieces

cove base molding
wall base molding
vinyl base molding

any of the above.

available in many colors. Rolls or flat stock from 4' to 20' pieces. generally 4" but also available in 6".

before you actually install this, look around and learn how to install it properly. It is not rocket science but there are tricks to making it look good. Corners are usually the hardest thing for most people.
