Retro pink kitchen design from 1955

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.

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.
