Linoleum Floors - The Most Bang For Your Buck!

Linoleum flooring (also called vinyl flooring) is one of the most popular options for new floors, particularly in bathrooms and kitchens. The reasons for this popularity become crystal clear if you consider price and durability. If you're looking for a floor that will last for generations at the lowest possible cost, This is definitely the floor for you. 

Lets begin by talking about the price. This is often the biggest consideration for home owners and apartment landlords when considering a new floor. Different flooring materials have differing prices depending on quality, but linoleum is almost always your cheapest option. The reason for this is because the process to produce the linoleum itself makes heavy use of recycled products. Utilizing recycling to produce and dispose of linoleum keeps costs low while producing a quality product. The cost savings in the manufacturing process are passed directly on to the consumer!

The phrase "you get what you pay for" doesn't necessarily apply here either. Despite the relatively low cost of linoleum products, the floors end up being extremely durable and last for ages. The floors are resistant to all manner of dirt, grime and spills and the material is designed to be very easy to clean. Due to this durability, it is a favorite choice for high traffic areas or areas prone to dirt and spills, such as kitchens and bathrooms. This durability is also a huge benefit to landlords in rental properties because the floors require less maintenance and are harder to be damaged by negligent tenants. 

To add a cherry to the top, linoleum is offered in hundreds of different styles ranging from color options to patterns and even textures. There is a huge degree of customization in choosing a linoleum floor so despite it being a cheap and heavy duty floor, it can look classy and add value to a room.

To recap, if you are looking for a heavy duty and resilient floor that won't break the bank but still looks amazing, you should definitely consider installing linoleum in your home!
