Linoleum flooring BoiseWhile searching for floors to suit your Boise home, it is important to be aware of all your flooring options. Here at Floor Coverings International Treasure Valley, we can supply and install a number of different types of floors, but linoleum is an option that we like to highlight for homeowners looking for affordable, eco-friendly flooring.

What is Linoleum?

Made from natural products like cork dust, pine resin, and linseed oil, linoleum is a great eco-friendly flooring option that doesn’t require as many chemicals during manufacturing as some other floors. Linoleum is both biodegradable and recyclable, meaning that it will not negatively impact the environment after being discarded.


Even though linoleum is made from natural materials, that fact does not compromise its durability. The natural products actually make it resistant against dents and scratches and even give it antibacterial properties. Linoleum is also an especially water resistant floor, and its comfort underfoot makes it a great addition to any kitchen or bathroom.


linoleum floor colors boiseModern linoleum is nothing like the yellowed, dull floor you might imagine from old movies. Modern linoleum comes in sheets or tiles that encompass a wide array of colors, patterns, and textures. These allow homeowners the ability to customize and design their floors to create any aesthetic they can think of. Use bright colors to make a statement, or choose neutral colors to blend in with any décor.
