Marmoleum Sheet and Tile
When it comes to flooring options, the choices are unlimited and the design options are endless. There are not many options, however, that offer environmental benefits and even fewer with health benefits. Marmoleum flooring offers both in a wide variety of color and design choices. The most commonly available marmoleum flooring is in the form of large rolls, sheets, or tiles.
What Color Choices are Available With Marmoleum Sheet and Tile?
Practically any homeowner will be pleased with the colors of marmoleum available. The Sunsets Boulevard collection, for example, offers a selection of radiant reds, oranges, and yellows that reflect the many shades of the sun. The Rhythmic Blues collection, on the other hand explores the beautiful and calming nature of blue, from the crisp morning sky to the deep, almost purple tone of the ocean at night. One could choose several blues to arrange in the center of their floor and border it with complementing red and orange tones for a perpetual ocean sunset flooring mural.
For those seeking a more neutral look that will complement a wider range of décor, Neutral Color Collaborators offers a collection of taupe and earth tones. Some are solid neutrals while others have a marbling effect for a more sophisticated feel. The Grey-Dations collection offers a spectrum ranging from light grey to amethyst to black. This marmoleum collection allows a homeowner to create a look that is both neutral and contemporary.
Health benefits of marmoleum sheet and tile include:
- Marmoleum is naturally hypoallergenic and anti-static. This is good news for allergy and asthmas sufferers since dirt and dust will not readily cling to it.
- Marmoleum has natural bactericidal properties. Micro-organisms don’t stand a chance at surviving, let alone multiplying, making marmoleum an ideal choice for bathrooms and kitchens.
- The suberin in marmoleum repels mites and other insects, and discourages the growth of mold and mildew. These properties will help protect against respiratory problems if they don’t already exist, and ease the symptoms of those currently suffering.
Why is Marmoleum Considered Environmentally Friendly?
Marmoleum is made from totally natural products that are 100% renewable. Made primarily from linseed oil and cork, energy and resources are not wasted in the production of marmoleum. Marmoleum is also extremely low maintenance and does not require the use of harsh chemicals to keep it looking new. Even the glue used to secure sheet and tile marmoleum is non-toxic and water soluble.
Is Marmoleum Sheet and Tile Difficult to Install?
Marmoleum tile installation is generally a simple matter of peeling off the backing and sticking to your subfloor, with careful measuring and planning of course. Sheet marmoleum can be somewhat trickier to install and may be best left to a professional installer. A level subfloor is a must and precision is everything lest the entire sheet be ruined. Either type may be installed over an existing floor, so long as it is not carpet.
Is Marmoleum Sheet and Tile a Wise Investment?
Marmoleum is very durable and with proper care can last for 40 years or more. It is also an affordable flooring option that will make the initial investment easier to handle. When the time comes to replace it, homeowners can rest easy knowing the environment will not suffer. Marmoleum truly is a wise choice for any home.
