Why Linoleum Should Make a Comeback

By Miron Properties | Published on July 24,2014 at 12:00AM

Often homeowners may have a set of criteria that they want from their flooring. They want it to be comfortable, but at the same time economical, and on top of that stylish. Recently many people have turned to wood, stone, and even cork as flooring options but have overlooked a material that’s been in the game for a while… linoleum! Here’s why linoleum should see a revival:



Linoleum outperforms many of its competitors in terms of comfort and durability. Many homeowners enjoy the softness they feel underfoot.


Linoleum is much cheaper than its wood and stone counterparts. Its longevity also makes it a cheaper option as you won’t have to maintain or replace it.


Nowadays linoleum comes in a wide variety of style selections, ranging from different colors to geometric patterns. The design possibilities are limitless with this material.

BONUS: Green

Linoleum is a sustainable product made from linseed oil. It has been ranked as one of the most eco-friendly flooring choices on the market today, so if you plan on living in a green home, here is your green option.


Linoleum has been written off recently as dated and out-of-style, but if you are exploring flooring options, consider linoleum for its comfort, cost-effectiveness, design possibilities, and eco-friendliness!
