It is not! Many homeowners believe that vinyl flooring and linoleum are the same material, but the truth is, they are entirely different. Today's post will tell you how to differentiate between the two, so read along now to find out more.
Understanding both vinyl flooring and linoleum
These materials look similar, with the same patterns and formats, but not the same product. For example, vinyl flooring is made primarily of vinyl and other necessary agents. In contrast, linoleum is made of all-natural materials, including ground limestone, wood flour, powdered cork, rosins, and similar materials.
One of the essential characteristics of linoleum flooring is that it emits no chemicals or VOCs for a healthier environment. It comes in sheet form, but you can even purchase the materials in plank and tile format, just as you can purchase luxury vinyl flooring.
On the other hand, vinyl tile and vinyl plank flooring offer impressive benefits, including complete waterproof protection, thanks to core materials made of wood plastic composite, stone plastic composite, or 100% vinyl. You'll also find these floors offer protection against daily wear, with a top wear layer that you can purchase in a variety of thicknesses for customized security.
