Long gone are the days of linoleum floors and homeowners are also quickly tearing out carpet in favor of wood or tile flooring. But have you heard of vintage vinyl flooring? It’s the modern-day linoleum while also being a great alternative to carpets and rugs.
Vintage vinyl floor cloths are durable, flexible, and beautiful. There are a lot of different styles and patterns to choose from that will match the style and decor of any home. They also come in a variety of sizes, from basic shapes to runners; you can also lay it so that it covers your entire floor, wall-to-wall.
