If you are looking for a viable eco friendly flooring solution then look no further than Linoleum, or Lino, this product is not to be confused with the ever popular vinyl floor covering.
Natural Linoleum is made from linseed oil, pigments, cork powder, pine resin and pine flour.
Because linseed oil cures as it ages, linoleum gets tougher over the years. Highly durable, linoleum is known to last 20+ years and its excellent for high traffic areas.
Its natural ingredients means that linoleum is biodegradable.
Linoleum is naturally fire-resistant so you don’t have to worry about toxic fire retardants.
In addition to being water-resistant, linoleum is also anti-static so it repels dust (important if you’ve got asthma or allergies).
Linoleum is scratch-resistant and the colour is baked in so you don’t have to worry about “bald spots” appearing over time.
Available in a wide range of colours and patterns, linoleum tends to come in sheets or tiles. Make sure to use a low VOC adhesive when installing.
