Vinyl and Linoleum Flooring
Linoleum or vinyl flooring is popular for its affordability and the range of styles and patterns available to match almost every design need for your home. It’s made to look like tile, natural stone and wood flooring, but at a fraction of the cost, and with far easier installation and care. Linoleum is back and better than ever, still one of the original ecofriendly, man-made flooring materials but now in more attractive style options.
The durability of linoleum and vinyl flooring can’t equal wood, tile or natural stone, but it’s not designed to, and the lower price reflects this. Linoleum and vinyl flooring is a popular choice when looking for a floor that will last 5-15 years, retain its appearance through wetness and in high traffic areas, and especially for homeowners shopping for affordable flooring on a fixed budget.
When affordability and easy maintenance are important, but you still want attractive flooring for your home or office, these materials are a great choice. Browse our vinyl and linoleum flooring guides for more details.
