Available in a smooth or rough stucco-look surface; pictured above in Fine Sand. jameshardie.com

Marmoleum floors are made with biodegradable, rapidly renewable raw materials, along with 43-percent recycled content. The linoleum-like floors come in more than 300 colors and motifs. Pictured above: Marmoleum Concrete marries the look of marble and the texture of cement. forbo.com/flooring/en-us
