lino,,,
Linoleum (informally abbreviated to lino) is a floor covering made from solidified linseed oil (linoxyn) in combination with wood flour or cork dust over a burlap or canvas backing. Pigments may be added to the materials used. The finest linoleum floors, known as 'inlaid', are extremely durable; they are made by joining and inlaying solid pieces of linoleum. Cheaper patterned linoleums came in different grades or gauges, and were printed with thinner layers which were more prone to wear and tear. Good quality linoleum is sufficiently flexible to be used in buildings in which more rigid material (such as ceramic tile) would crack.

No, I have never seen this - only in pics.

it's white. that's bad. very very very very bad.......lol

is it not marble

oh ok, I thought you'd moved into the house and were looking to cover other areas in it. Probably have your work cut out then. Did you get the picture from a website? E-mail the webmaster? lol

Might be worth a try.

Thanks, will take this pic to a local flooring shop and see what they say. :thumbsup:

There's absolutely no way anyone can tell you what that flooring is from that picture alone.

Could possibly be polished concrete, concrete can incredibly be laid and buffed to a high shine glossy surface!
