In the ’70s, modern versions of linoleum made with vinyl were the must-have floors in kitchens and family rooms — and even bathrooms. The most popular choices in the no-wax flooring department were the faux tile patterns, such as those shown below. (As you can see, they were especially popular in shades of blue as well as warm earth tones, including the supremely ’70s harvest gold color).
