When will this site start suggesting linoleum instead of or in addition to vinyl? It is a great natural alternative (really the original product) and it is available at most flooring places.

@emwallace25 - it also looks better, wears better and feels better underfoot. I hate vinyl - love good quality lino.

I have had white porcelain tile with a brown grouting for 29 years in my kitchen. The grouting has served me well and tile is still perfect.
