It’s not your grandmother’s linoleum anymore! These days, linoleum floors have a whole new image: colorful, fashionable, and environmentally friendly. At Great American Floors, linoleum flooring is available in wide range of colors and patterns, from traditional marbled patterns to contemporary flecked designs or graphic patterns. You can also find linoleum flooring in warm earth tones that highlight its organic qualities. Many homeowners like the fact that linoleum is made from natural materials, including linseed oil, recycled wood flour and limestone. These natural materials help to make linoleum anti-bacterial and biodegradable.
Linoleum Flooring Durability
Linoleum flooring is very durable—that’s one of the reasons it was such a popular flooring in the early-to-mid-20th century. Homeowners knew when they installed a linoleum floor, it would stand the test of time. Today, durability is still a key feature of linoleum floors. These floors are highly resistant to gouging and scratching, and they hold up well to heavy traffic. Linoleum flooring can last more than 40 years if it’s installed and maintained properly.
