Forbo Marmoleum Cocoa Earl Grey Chocolate London

Forbo Marmoleum Cocoa Earl Grey Chocolate. A lovely project in London. Start to finish from an insurance claim, a flood we were led to believe.

The client had marmoleum down before but by all accounts it had not been fitted that well anyway, which is why we were called. To make sure that it was all fitted to the very highest standard this time.

Here is how it went.

Areas to be fitted kitchen bedroom and bathroom 

Points to note: You need 61m2 of Marmoleum because of the width of the roll but you only actually need 49m2 of it fitted.

And a little bit about marmoleum and why it is so good for domestic floors.

Originally known as Lino or Linoleum, Marmoleum is a natural flooring made from renewable materials by Forbo.

Forbo Holding AG based in Baar ZG is a globally operating Swiss manufacturer of floor coverings and building and construction adhesives as well as power transmission and light conveyor belts. … Forbo has 5700 employees and achieved a turnover in 2018 of 1,327.0 million Swiss francs. I expect that will be a little down in 2020.

Linoleum was actually invented by Englishman Frederick Walton. In 1855, Walton happened to notice the rubbery, flexible skin of solidified linseed oil (linoxyn) that had formed on a can of oil-based paint and thought that it might form a substitute for India rubber. Forbo still carries a range called ‘Walton’ in honour of Frederick Walton.

Available in tiles, sheet and click systems, with a vast range of colours and textures, from their smooth Walton 😉 flat colours to their natural marble effects.  Marmoleum is not only good for the environment but extremely hard wearing and easy to maintain. Which makes it perfect for the home.
