Linoleum VS Vinyl Flooring

When it comes to choosing the right flooring for your home, it is important to consider the main benefits of each product and how they will suit your needs. Linoleum and Vinyl flooring are both considered the most popular in kitchens, dining rooms and bathrooms, but which one is best for you?


Linoleum flooring is made out of quality, long-lasting materials including:

  • Linseed Oil
  • Rosin
  • Wood Flour
  • Limestone
  • Pigments
  • Jute

Because of its all-natural materials, linoleum flooring is some of the most environmentally friendly flooring options. These features help to keep linoleum floors free from dust mites and fleas, making it the perfect flooring option if you are prone to allergies.

Vinyl flooring is often combined with plastercisers, resin and stabilisers which are compressed together under high pressure. These hard-wearing vinyl floor tiles are extremely durable and long-lasting, giving it the ability to withstand various environmental factors such as heat and moisture.

Linoleum Flooring

It is the best option to have linoleum for kitchens and bathrooms as they are extremely low maintenance and easy to clean. This is useful as food and water spillage is common in these areas.

Linoleum flooring is available in a range of designs, colours and patterns. Whether you are looking to maintain a minimalistic or traditional layout to your property, linoleum floors can offer it all!

Not just for residential use, but linoleum is a great commercial flooring option for retail stores, gyms and schools. Linoleum can bring an aspect of colour and attraction to these buildings whilst also factoring in long-lasting qualities and durability for high traffic areas.

Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl flooring provide a more sophisticated and modern approach when it comes to its style. Its materials have the ability to replicate the look of various other flooring options whilst maintaining greater benefits. Because of this, you will be able to achieve the same layout as you would with alternative flooring options such as wood and tile, but will still withhold a variety of practicalities.
