Linoleum vs. Vinyl Flooring

Light Vinyl Flooring

With such a wide variety of flooring options at your disposal, sometimes it’s tough to tell the differences of different types.

Two options that often draw a lot of comparison (and confusion) are linoleum and vinyl floors. Both come in a variety of styles and colors and are versatile, working well in kitchens, bathrooms and most other areas of your home. So which one is right for your next project? While they are similar, each has its own positives and negatives that may impact your decision on which the best option for your home.

 
Linoleum Flooring: Not Just for Grandma's House?

Many homeowners often consider linoleum flooring a stop-gap measure until they can afford a better option. But this durable, lightweight floor has a great deal to offer, and in more than just the kitchen.

 
Materials

Linoleum floors are made of natural materials. Solidified linseed oil, pine rosin, ground cork dust, wood flour and mineral fillers are all brought together to build the base and foundation of the material.

Vinyl flooring, on the other hand, is a synthetic floor composed mostly of PVC and other additives. Although nothing about vinyl flooring is dangerous or hazardous, more environmentally conscious shoppers may be swayed to go linoleum (although vinyl floors have become more and more environmentally friendly over the years).
