Linoleum flooring: have you thought of these alternatives?


Because of its many benefits, linoleum has been a popular flooring material since its debut in the 19th century. Its biggest disadvantage, though, is probably the installation. Not only does linoleum flooring require a steady hand to cut, the adhesive can turn your room into a sticky mess before you know it. Hiring a professional to do it, however, can increase the cost of your floor pretty rapidly. And while linoleum flooring can be an excellent choice in certain situations, it is often considered ‘cheap’. This also makes it less desirable when it comes to assessing property value.
