Linoleum flooring is a durable, affordable flooring that has been popular in home design since the early 1900s. Linoleum is a plastic-like product that is made from natural ingredients include a mix of linseed oil, tree resin, wood, cork, and limestone. Because linoleum is made from renewable ingredients, it has become regained a recent popularity because it is a great choice for an eco-friendly home remodel.
Linoleum floors are made with a strong coating that makes them one of the most durable floors on the market. They are great for high-traffic areas, which is why they have been a very popular choice for schools in the past. For homes they make a great flooring for high traffic areas like mudrooms, kitchens, and hallways. With that being said, they’re not highly recommended for moisture-ridden areas, like bathrooms, because they are easily affected by humidity.
Linoleum floors can come in an array of different styles and colors because they are fashioned with pigments and can be personalized to an array of different designs. There is a design for practically any home, at an affordable price. Linoleum is very versatile in shape and appearance, so not only can it be made with an array of shapes and colors, it can be made to mimic the appearance of other flooring like hardwood, tile, and stone. Often times linoleum is much cheaper than the flooring it appears to look like, and is typically a lot more durable.
