Yes – there really are joys attached to linoleum – sometimes it is just the mere fact that you are able to pronounce the word without stuttering, stammering or making funny faces!
I’m excited about linoleum for a number of reasons –
– I can spell it! I even did it right the first time without spell-check.
– I can say it without twisting my tongue into a knot. It’s one of those words like aluminum – some people just have a tough time with this one.
– It’s easy to clean – okay, I admit I don’t LIKE to clean anything – but at least linoleum is easier to clean than a lot of other things – like tile which has grout that gets yucky or carpet which in a kitchen or eating area gets even yuckier.
– My dishes don’t break when they fall on it — unlike the many glasses and plates I have broken when I have dropped them on tile.
And the main reason I’m excited about linoleum?
They have installed it in my house! Yes, there is lovely linoleum in all the right areas – entryway, bathrooms and kitchen. Plus, it really shows off my great new cabinets!
So, what is so great about linoleum — when it belongs in your new house, it means that it’s getting closer to being completely done!
