Why linoleum floors?
If you’re seeking a durable, high-quality, eco-friendly flooring option, linoleum floors should be at the top of your list. Made from natural and renewable raw materials and recycled content, linoleum is fully biodegradable. After a lifespan of 30+ years, linoleum flooring can be scrapped without environmental concern. It can even be incinerated to create thermal energy that exceeds the energy used at initial production.
With proper care, linoleum floors can last for decades. Their construction lends to colorfastness, unlike materials in which colors and patterns are printed on the surface. Its protective layers prevent scratches and scuffs, making it well-suited to high-traffic areas and homes with pets and children. If scratched, you’ll be able to buff and refinish easily, due to the colors and patterns running through the full thickness. Linoleum is both water and heat resistant, making it a great choice for bathrooms, kitchens, and even entranceways.
Linoleum is naturally resistant to bacteria and fungus and has the added bonus of being hypoallergenic. This helps to contribute to its low maintenance status, as basic sweeping and mopping are all your linoleum floor will need—aside from a waxing every few years to prevent yellowing.
Flexible and affordable
With over 300 colors and 12 design structures in both sheet and tile formats, you can rest assured you’ll find the right fit for your linoleum floor installation. Click-and-lock linoleum is available in planks and tiles, making it an excellent choice for floating floors. Large spaces will benefit from sheet or tile flooring, which comes in a variety of colors and styles and is less costly than traditional ceramic or porcelain materials
