Linoleum is a durable, environmentally friendly flooring type, loved for its vivid and deep colors. You’ll find that linoleum enhances many looks with its traditional marbled patterns and unique, graphic designs.

Among the “greenest” of floors, linoleum is made from natural materials: linseed oil, resins, recycled wood flour, cork dust, limestone and mineral pigments, mounted on jute backing. It’s naturally anti-bacterial and biodegradable. Sheet linoleum is sold in two-meter (or 6’ 7”) widths and several thicknesses.

Most people who choose vinyl sheet or luxury vinyl over linoleum do so because vinyl is easier to maintain. Depending upon foot traffic and the wear layer of the product you choose, linoleum can require a little more maintenance to look and perform its best.
