Posted on December 1, 2011 by Jared

Marmoleum® is one of our biggest sellers for both residential and commercial floors. Interior designers love Marmoleum because of its design flexibility. Customers love it because of its durability and low maintenance. And we love it because it’s eco-friendly.

What is Marmoleum?

Think of Marmoleum as the new eco-friendly linoneum. Marmoleum is made with a 100% mix of pre-consumer recycled content, such as wood flour and tall oil, and rapidly renewable materials, such as linseed oil, pine rosin and jute.

Designing with Marmoleum

Marmoleum is available in sheets, tiles and click planks in a large variety of dynamic colours. The best part is that you can combine different colours to create stunning designs, patterns and borders. Check these out:

That also means that Marmoleum is allergen-free and bacteria resistant, making it a great choice for those of us suffering from asthma or allergies. Marmoleum is SMaRT Certified and qualifies for LEED® credits.
