The history of linoleum can be traced back to hundreds of years ago and has become the most sought after flooring material for residential and business infrastructure. It is popularly known for its durability and adaptability features that many homeowners find appealing. However, there is more to linoleum than being durable and versatile.
Linoleum is made from natural and environmentally friendly materials like consolidated linseed oil, pine resin, sediments of cork dust, sawdust, and other mineral fillers. To put colors for design purposes, pigments are added. Solid pieces of linoleum are layered together to create a more durable outcome. However, if you expect a more flexible linoleum, you can opt for the higher quality materials. High-quality linoleum is often installed in places where firm construction materials are present and where possible cracks may occur like ceramic tiles.
