A white brick linoleum floor for your pink kitchen? Why not – it was the fifties! (1956)

Do you ever hanker for the charm of old-fashioned brick kitchen floors? How friendly they were, gleaming after their morning scrub! (Scrub? Ah, there was the rub!)

Well, you need hanker no more, for here’s their modern counterpart — in Armstrong Linoleum. This new white brick design has all of the old charm — right down to the embossed mortar lines — and none of the chore, for Armstrong Linoleum never needs hard scrubbing.

Occasional washing and waxing will keep this floor bright and beautiful. And spilled things — even grease — wipe up without a trace. There’s not a crack where dirt can hide. It’s quiet and comfortable underfoot, too, which real brick never was!

Beauty… practicality… they’re both yours today, with Armstrong Linoleum, the modern fashion in floors.

What a wonderful, work-saving center the modern kitchen-dining area is! The dining table can be just a step away from the sink — yet separated from it so much there’s a minimum of “kitcheny” atmosphere. And how easy it is to keep such a compact area sparkling clean when you have a modern plastic floor of Armstrong Excelon Tile.

Because Excelon is made with vinyl plastic, the colors are unusually clear and bright. The smooth, tough surface isn’t harmed by grease — sweeps clean in a jiffy. Any room, even the basement, can have this practical floor, and at very low cost.

  1. Great retro photos and ideas! I’m preparing to go pink/retro in my kitchen and these gave me a lot of great ideas. Sadly, on the “ Who wouldn’t love a pink Caloric range?” photo, it would appear that the woman of the house, though very proud of her kitchen, had chosen not to eat any of her own cooking. With that 12” waist, it’s a miracle of physics that she’s even standing! A true medical marvel!
