Matching old linoleum.

What does anyone think the chances of finding matching linoleum flooring that was installed 15 years ago? I have to match a small area and the remaining floor is in good shape. Thanks in advance.

I'd say it's possible, but you'll likely have a hard time. Could you maybe cut a piece from elsewhere to make your patch then put a different type of flooring (i.e. tile) in the other area?

I'd say it's doubtful, even if you found the same pattern/color there would likely be small differences in production tat would show. How big of an area needs repair? where in the floor?

That's what I thought. Area is 6"x5' .It is at a door entrance where I repaired subfloor. No other area to remove old linoleum to match it size wise.. Thanks

Could you maybe accent the floor with a border?

6 inches by 5 feet, or 6 feet by 5 feet. If the former, how about just covering it with a floor mat?

Patterns change constantly. If you found some that old, it would most likely be brittle.

If this is an outside door, I like ceramic entryways.
