Lino Flooring Portsmouth
At Portsmouth Carpet Fitter, we’re proud to offer all types of lino flooring: bathroom lino, kitchen lino, and more.
Lino Vs. Vinyl
The terms “linoleum flooring” and “vinyl flooring” are often used interchangeably – and while that’s understandable, it’s also inaccurate. Though they share some similarities, lino and vinyl are two entirely different flooring materials with their own pros and cons.
If you’re looking for resilient flooring, you’ll need to know whether lino or vinyl is the best fit for your needs. Fortunately, we’ve put together a brief explanation of these two options.
Made entirely of natural materials, lino flooring has been in use since the 1800s. Lino is perhaps best known for its resilience and comfort, but it has a number of additional benefits. Notably, lino floors are great at trapping heat, and the patterns and colors they display won’t fade over time. Lino floor tiles also have a “retro chic” appeal these days, especially if you go with classic black and white lino tiles for your kitchen!
If you choose lino flooring, there are a few things you’ll need to take into account. These floors can be damaged by water – if you’re looking at bathroom lino flooring or lino flooring for kitchens, they’ll need to be sealed every so often. You’ll also need to take care not to scratch them with sharp objects.
Unlike lino, vinyl flooring is synthetic – it’s made from PVC. It started becoming popular in the 1960s, when it was sold as a more affordable alternative to lino (though cheap lino is also easy to find). Along with its lower price, vinyl flooring offers lino-like resilience, increased durability, and waterproof varieties.
Despite these factors, vinyl flooring is not objectively better than lino flooring. Vinyl does not last as long as well-maintained lino does, and the images and colors printed on it can wear down eventually. The manufacturing process for vinyl flooring also has a greater impact on the natural world than the process of making lino flooring – if you’re environmentally-minded, lino might be just what you’re looking for.

Whether you’ve decided to go with subtle grey lino flooring, natural-looking wood effect lino, or bold black and white tile effect lino, you’ll need someone qualified to install it.
