Linoleum floors have been installed in homes around the world since 1860. Although some of these vintage linoleum floors have been able to withstand decades of wear, they may be in need of repairs or replacement. Consider replacing vintage linoleum with new linoleum flooring that has a classic print. Some manufacturers even specialize in vintage-style linoleum flooring and wallpaper so you can maintain this look in your home forever.
Vintage linoleum floors are not only unique in design, they are also eco-friendly. They're comprised almost entirely of natural and sustainable resources such as linseed oil, pine resin and cork flour. Linoleum floors tend to yellow when covered by furniture for long periods of time. This discoloration is not a sign of damage and should clear up once exposed to light and air. So before you rip out all of your vintage linoleum floors, give them time to reinstate their natural coloring.
Linoleum flooring has been appreciated for years for their low cost and durability. Unlike vinyl floors to which they're often compared, linoleum flooring does not emit harmful pollutants. Linoleum floors can also be recycled at the end of their useful lives and can be relatively easy to maintain. If you have kids, pets or just enjoy low maintenance flooring, vintage linoleum floors may be the answer you're looking for. Use our linoleum section to see if they're the right floor choice for you.
