Invented in the late 19th century, linoleum flooring was popular by the early 20th century. It was largely replaced by modern vinyl flooring in modern times, though it’s making a comeback. The all-natural composition of linoleum from tree resins and other materials, along with its rich, pliable surface, give a warmer look and feel than vinyl, though it is installed in the same way and with the same tools.
Thoroughly clean the floor with household cleaner and a scrub brush. Mop-rinse it well. Let it dry for 24 hours.
Press your first linoleum tile into the adhesive, so it's bordered by the two lines at the intersection.
