Linoleum flooring is usually something you think of when you think of your grandparents kitchens. Old fashioned and out of date, not many people these days would even consider using Linoleum flooring in their homes.
However, long gone are the days when Linoleum was plain and boring to look at. These days it comes in a wide choice of styles and colors which can go into any room no matter what your tastes are. So if you have not thought about using Linoleum and you are looking for new flooring ideas, then now may be the time to reconsider your options.
The Advantages of using a Linoleum Flooring
When it comes to replacing the flooring in your home, often it can seem like it is going to cost the earth. However that does not always have to be the case and it is completely possible to have flooring in the home that is inexpensive and which lasts for years to come. Linoleum in particular is a type of flooring that does not cost a lot of money.
You can even choose how thick you want the Linoleum to be. Also the styles that it comes in are fantastic with marble, wood and tile effects all readily available. You can also select plain style or even floral ones if you would prefer. So the choice really is endless and you should easily be able to find something to match your tastes.
Linoleum is also extremely easy to keep clean. If anything spills onto it, all you have to do is wipe it away with a damp cloth. To maintain it you simply vacuum it every day to get rid of dust and that is basically it. As it is quite durable, you do not have to worry about placing heavy furniture on top of it either. With hardwood and laminate flooring there is always a risk that it will become scratched if you move anything around on top of it. So it would be nice not having to worry about that for a change.
However there is one room in which you should not really put Linoleum flooring in and that is the bedroom. Every other room would be fine; especially the bathroom and the kitchen. However with the bedroom you want to give it a really comfortable feel and that simply would not happen with Linoleum as it is not overly comfortable to stand on with bare feet.
Overall if you do choose to have Linoleum flooring in your home, you should always ensure that you glue it down properly. This is especially true in rooms where there is a lot of humidity as that can cause the flooring to loosen up a little.
