There is a new, incredible and stylish option in natural flooring from Forbo Flooring; Marmoleum. Green-minded Minneapolis residents are now remodeling their kitchens, bathrooms, play rooms, living rooms and more with Marmoleum! Unlike vinyl, this is an all-natural linoleum made primarily from linseed oil, which comes from the flax seeds. While it traditionally has been sought after by the chemically sensitive or those concerned about indoor-air quality, it is now also being sought after for its incredible style. Hopkins Carpet One now carries a wide variety of Forbo Flooring perfect for Minneapolis households looking to go au naturale. Here are a few of the many great benefits to selecting Forbo flooring for the modern home:
