Make places into homely spaces with Marmoleum Linear from Forbo

When families view prospective care homes for their loved ones, it’s not surprising they are more likely to choose a facility that has a warm and homely feel – and this includes assessing the flooring.

As such, creating a home-like atmosphere is incredibly important – especially as it can help residents to feel at ease too.

But how can you effectively achieve this, while ensuring that spaces remain healthy and hygienic? Forbo Flooring Systems’ recently refreshed Marmoleum Linear collection is the answer.

With a beautiful natural colour palette, ranging from light earthy tones to cool greys, as well as a softly striated design, which is seen as an expression of wood, Marmoleum Linear will allow care homes to bring a touch of nature inside to create warm, welcoming and relaxing spaces.

There are even colourways that have been assessed and accredited by the DSDC, ensuring that there are suitable options for dementia-friendly design.

As well as being comfortable by design, Marmoleum Linear is naturally bacteriostatic and has been awarded the prestigious Allergy UK Seal of Approval, as with the correct simple cleaning and maintenance regime, it won’t harbour dust mites.

The collection is manufactured from 97% natural raw materials and is CO2 neutral (from cradle to gate) without offsetting. Free from plasticisers and synthetic additives, as well as low in emissions, the collection is the perfect solution to create a pleasant, healthy and hygienic care home environment.
