Floor Coverings International of Middletown offers a variety of options for linoleum flooring to meet your needs. Linoleum flooring was introduced in the 1960 and quickly became a popular floor in the 1960s because its rich color palate worked well with the décor of that era. While most commonly sold in sheets, linoleum flooring can also be found in tiles.

Although both types are considered resilient flooring, linoleum flooring isn’t to be confused with vinyl. The two are very different. Vinyl flooring in Middletown NY is a petroleum byproduct, while linoleum is made from linseed oil and resin. Vinyl’s patterns are printed on the surface, where linoleum’s color is mixed in the material.


Recent advancements in technology, coupled with the realization that linoleum has green or eco-friendly attributes, has enabled linoleum to make a bit of a comeback. Linoleum can be quite stylish as well as functional. Like vinyl, linoleum flooring is well-suited to kitchens and bathrooms and basements. With its stylish appearance, linoleum can be used just about anywhere to complement a wide range of décor.
