If you’re looking for the near-perfect green flooring, look no further: Marmoleum, a natural linoleum flooring material, is not only eco-friendly—it’s also health friendly and ideal for interior spaces.
Marmoleum is made from all natural ingredients of linseed oil/flax, wood resins, cork, limestone, and jute. The flooring is naturally bactericidal, antistatic, and discourages the collection of dust mites—making it a great option for those affected by asthma and for babies, whose respiratory defenses are still developing. Another well-touted plus is the flooring’s consistent temperature neutrality, which allows it to work well in all homes, even those situated in zones with extreme climates.
Marmoleum boasts a wide color palette ranging from soft, natural earth tones to boldly colored patterns. Many marmoleum products come as patented clic tiles, which literally click together for a seamless appearance. Clic tiles also make for very easy installation.
It’s low maintenance in the cleaning department as well—a simple once-over with a dust mop or damp cloth will restore it to sparkly clean glory.
