Marmoleum floor installation at The Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn London

We have had a lovely project at the world famous Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn London. Working with the amazing Bridget, Barry and Shaz. Probably our favourite project this year so far. A beautiful new Marmoleum floor to be laid in The Cameron Mackintosh Rehearsal Room. A spacious rehearsal studio featuring large windows opening out onto a small balcony. Something to really get our teeth into and a marvellous space to show off all the qualities of Marmoleum Lino flooring.

And what are the benefits and advantages of Marmoleum floors?

There are lots.

  • Marmoleum can be used to design intricate patterns as well as one all over color on any floor.
  • It is very beautiful.
  • It is made of natural materials so it will not release toxins into the air.
  • It is antibacterial.
  • The estimated life of the floor under normal conditions is fifty years.
  • The floor is heat resistant and it won’t burn easily.
  • It’s anti-static properties mean that dirt won’t stick to it and it is easier to clean.
  • The material can be cut to create borders and other designs.
  • It is 100% biodegradable.
  • The floors are wonderful to walk on and very comfortable to sit and stand on.

Are there any disadvantages of Marmoleum Flooring?

Yes, there are some.

  • The floor can stain – especially from pet stains.
  • It dents quite easily.
  • The floor scuffs.
  • It needs constant maintenance.
  • It is expensive to buy and expensive to fit
  • The floor needs to be super smooth.

We are going to make a video of the installation because it wet so well and looks so good at the end. This is how we did it.
