Linoleum Flooring Configuration

  • Sheet Linoleum Flooring: As the most popular variety of linoleum, sheet linoleum flooring comes in the widest selection of colors and patterns. Since sheet linoleum comes in heavy 6'6" rolls and the installation process is fairly complex, it's recommended that you have a professional install your linoleum floors.
  • Linoleum Tile Flooring: Combining the benefits of linoleum with the attractive look of a tile floor, linoleum tiles are a great alternative to tiles of ceramic or stone. While they may be installed over a pre–existing floor, it must be a very smooth and secure surface in order to support the tiles. Linoleum tiles will also have a distinctly different feel from ceramic or stone.
  • Floating Linoleum Floors: Floating linoleum floors are the best choice for those who want to install their linoleum floors themselves. Featuring click and lock edges, these planks will click into place. Since they don't require adhesive, they can be installed with minimum mess, and you'll still get the great look of linoleum that you want.
