Stylish and Practical Marmoleum Kitchen Flooring Ideas for UK Homes

If you’re thinking about renovating your kitchen or simply need to replace its flooring, you may have considered Marmoleum flooring.

We capitalise ‘Marmoleum’ here as it is actually a brand name for a linoleum product manufactured by Forbo Flooring Systems. Our London-based company is skilled at installing Marmoleum flooring in the UK capital, but what benefits would this type of flooring be able to provide in your kitchen?

 

Sustainability 

In the kitchen, you might already be taking steps to help the planet, like putting used packaging in the recycling bin or opting for meat-free meals.

You can further support your eco-friendly initiatives by choosing Marmoleum for your kitchen flooring. It’s made from a variety of natural and renewable materials like linseed oil, pine rosin, and wood flour. What’s more, Marmoleum is manufactured in a completely carbon-neutral manner, eliminating the need for carbon offsetting.

 

Style

Given that Marmoleum is available in more than 300 different colours and can be crafted in bespoke designs, it won’t be difficult for you to source Marmoleum flooring that will look ‘just right’ in your kitchen.

For example, you can take your pick from a wide range of borders and highlight strips for Marmoleum flooring, which can even be made to resemble alternative flooring materials, e.g. hardwood and marble.

 

Comfort

In your kitchen, you’re likely to spend a lot of time standing, whether you’re reaching for items in cupboards, preparing food on the worktop, or washing pots and cutlery at the sink.

So, it’s convenient that Marmoleum flooring feels comfortable underfoot. Plus, it’s quiet, so you don’t have to worry about the floor making distracting noise as you move around the kitchen.

 

Durability 

Once Marmoleum flooring is installed, you can expect it to remain scratch and stain-resistant for decades, providing long-lasting durability and beauty to your kitchen.

While Marmoleum is highly durable, it’s not indestructible. Taking steps to protect it from damage is important, such as using small pieces of felt under the legs of chairs or tables in the kitchen. By taking these precautions, you can help ensure your Marmoleum flooring remains intact for 30 to 40 years.

 

Hygiene   

Certainly, you want to prevent the spread of microbes like salmonella in a space where food preparation occurs frequently. Luckily, Marmoleum flooring comes with antibacterial properties designed to inhibit the growth of microbes, providing an added layer of hygiene and safety in your kitchen.

If you suffer from allergies, you’ll be glad to know that the smooth surface of Marmoleum flooring prevents allergens like dust and pet dander from getting trapped in it, helping to maintain a cleaner and healthier indoor environment.

 

Ease of Maintenance

Keeping Marmoleum clean is a breeze and typically involves little more than mopping up spills and allowing the wet spots to air dry. You should also establish a routine of regularly sweeping and vacuuming the floor as a whole. The anti-static properties built into Marmoleum mean that dirt won’t cling to it.
