When you think of an old style bathroom, linoleum flooring may come to mind. Linoleum flooring shouldn’t be confused with vinyl flooring as they are completely different solutions. Vinyl flooring is a petroleum by-product, 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.
This old classic, linoleum flooring, was introduced in the 1960 and quickly became a flooring staple of 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.

Linoleum often costs significantly more than vinyl, in part because it’s notoriously difficult to install. In contrast, vinyl flooring has the capability of looking so similar to wood, stone or tile that many might mistake it for the real thing. For that reason, many customers in the Waukesha area ultimately choose vinyl flooring or a similar alternative for their home or business.
