New Linoleum Flooring Designs are Inspired by Nature
Linoleum has been around since the mid-19th century, but the gorgeous, eco-friendly material is currently having its moment in the sun. If you’re not familiar with this popular floor-covering product, we recommend taking a closer look.
Made from a variety of earth-sourced substances, linoleum is a natural flooring option. If you want to “go green” with your home remodel or renovation, this is a great material to choose.
Those who have an appreciation for sustainability and the great outdoors will love Forbo Marmoleum brand linoleum floor coverings, which are inspired by nature’s beauty.
Forbo Marmoleum: Flooring for Nature Lovers
If you admire the stunning patterns, colors, and textures of the natural world and want a naturally sourced flooring material, Marmoleum might be right up your alley. It’s made of a variety of renewable substances, including trees and plants that regrow in as little as a year.
Forbo Marmoleum consists of:
- Jute stem fibers
- Linseed oil derived from flax seeds
- Natural pigments
- Pine tree rosin
- Upcycled wood residues from sustainable forestry
When these key substances are combined, the result is a striking floor-covering material that’s just as natural as it looks. The linoleum is not only stunning but also sustainable, with a net zero (CO2 neutral) carbon footprint.
Browsing flooring samples from the Marmoleum Marbled collection is like taking a nature walk. Each style presents an astonishing blend of colors and textures reminiscent of the natural environment.
Marmoleum Marbled linoleum floors are inspired by the:
- Cool, calming grays and blues of the ocean
- Golden warmth and texture of a sun-drenched canyon
- Light and energizing colors of a wheat field at sunset
- Lush greens and browns of a dense forest
- Rich, natural tones of autumn leaves
- Ripe, sumptuous shades of summer fruits
- Rugged, earthen colors of a steep hillside
- Warm and relaxing hues of scented meadows
The colors, textures, and subtle patterns in the Marmoleum Marbled floor collection are unlike any other flooring product. With elaborate detailing and a smooth finish, this collection is truly remarkable.
What Are the Benefits of Linoleum Flooring?
Aside from being an environmentally friendly and sustainable product, there are many benefits of linoleum. The material has a protective top layer that repels dirt and prevents scuffs, making it easy to maintain. A mild, ammonia-free solution can be used for regular cleaning. When linoleum flooring is properly maintained, it can last as long as 40 years.
Linoleum floors are also notably durable and quiet underfoot. They can be installed in both residential and commercial spaces and are often used in kitchens, bathrooms, offices, entryways, and more. Additionally, many manufacturers offer warranties on linoleum floors for 25 or more years.
