Benefits of Linoleum Flooring

Here’s what you need to know about linoleum flooring

A common misconception that many people have is that vinyl and linoleum are one in the same. The truth is that linoleum is a completely different material from vinyl altogether. While linoleum is a popular choice for flooring, manufacturers have used linoleum for many applications for the past 150 years. Linoleum is actually composed of natural materials, such as linseed oil, ground-up stone, and wood or cord powder. Linoleum is recyclable and can be purchased partially-recycled.

If you're thinking about having linoleum flooring installed in your office or home, here are some of the many benefits of this flooring.


One major advantage of linoleum flooring is the aesthetics. Linoleum flooring is available in a number of styles, patterns, and colors to suit any form of décor. If you want a retro look, there are vintage options available when it comes to linoleum flooring. Since linoleum is easy to cut, you can combine many patterns and colors for your linoleum flooring to create a unique look.


While linoleum flooring is recyclable, it is one of the most durable flooring options you can choose. In fact, linoleum flooring can last up to four decades with regular usage. If you want flooring that will be able to withstand high traffic without much signs of wear and tear, you should choose linoleum flooring. Unsurprisingly, linoleum flooring is incredibly popular among homeowners with young children and pets.

Easy Cleaning

Scratch/Scuff Proof
