Floor Coverings International of Lexington offers environmentally-friendly linoleum flooring. Linoleum flooring was introduced in the 1960 and quickly became a flooring staple of the 1960s because its rich color palate worked well with the décor of that era. While most commonly sold in sheets, linoleum flooring can also be found in tiles

Linoleum flooring shouldn’t be confused with vinyl; the two are very different. Vinyl flooring is a petroleum byproduct, while linoleum is made from linseed oil and resin. Vinyl’s patterns are printed on the surface, where linoleum’s color is mixed in the material.

Linoleum often costs more than vinyl, in part because it’s notoriously difficult to install. Many choose linoleum because it is environmentally-friendly and its’ natural look.

When comparing linoleum to vinyl, keep in mind that new advances in vinyl flooring have made it possible to recreate the look of hardwood flooring and even stone. See some of the different options in person and discuss the pros and cons of each choice with the experts at Floor Coverings International in Lexington today.
