Comment:
I had a professional install Marmoleum by Forbo in my 1948 bathroom- in vivace color rafting river and in one solid piece (not click). The former 1948 floor was a pale green marmoleum (linoleum). The professional curved the floor at the edges to mimic 1940s installation. After two years, it looks gorgeous! It's so easy to clean and it hides all dirt.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
We had a great time picking out the options we wanted to combine to make our custom floor from the many square and rectangular click choices that Marmoleum provides. The cost of the product was quite high, but the installation cost was low, so it kind of evened out. (Note that upon exposure to UV light the color evens out, although it may not all look uniform when you first take the package out of the boxes.) The main drawback, discovered after we installed, was that the floor is difficult to maintain. You must use the Farbo brand cleaner and rinse it off, so it is like washing the floor twice every time you clean. We also discovered that the scratches from shoes or even chairs (that have floor guards on them) show. To combat these, you have to use the Farbo brand finish, which seems like the old-timey Mop-n-Glo. If you DO the maintenance, the floor looks nice, but it is a lot of upkeep.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
