5 Eco-Friendly Flooring Options Available

13 Nov 2012

If you’re thinking of using eco-friendly flooring options, you’re not alone. Many homeowners are thinking of these rather innovative flooring options themselves. And, while most aren’t exactly new, the idea of using them as flooring is for most people.

As such, you may not know much about these said eco-friendly flooring options yourself.

To help you with that, here are five of the most eco-friendly and highly recommended flooring options that you may want to consider for your home renovation.

1.    Concrete

You probably know about concrete’s use in construction. However, what you may not know is that refinished concrete is one of those eco-friendly flooring options that’s gaining popularity.

The reason for this is that if it’s polished and tinted the right way, refinished concrete doesn’t need flooring anymore. They also come in many designs and what’s best is that concrete is durable, easy to clean and you won’t have to worry about replacing it for years at a time.

2.    Reclaimed Wood Flooring

Wood flooring isn’t exactly an eco-friendly flooring option. But, reclaimed wood flooring, is because it’s made from recycled wood from trees cut down many years ago. True, it may NOT sound appealing, but it is and reclaimed wood flooring looks good as long as it’s paired with the right furniture.

3.    Cork

Cheap and made from a renewable source, cork flooring is an attractive option for those who are willing to experiment. And, not only is it cheap, but cork flooring is also quite durable and can last for between 10 to 30 years, depending on the quality.

Cork flooring also acts as a natural insect repellent too, as well as anti-microbial properties and are easy to maintain. Thus, cork flooring definitely makes for quite the attractive option.

4.    Bamboo

Durable, easy to maintain and much easier to install, bamboo flooring is also another wood-like option that’s becoming more and more famous.

Much like cork, bamboo comes in a variety of designs, but it offers a bit more customization.

5.    Wool Carpets

Conventional carpeting is probably the last thing you’ll ever think of when it comes to eco-friendly flooring solutions. They are, after all, one of the main reasons why the hazard of conventional flooring became an issue a few years back.

The good thing, though, is that there exists a greener alternative in the former of wool carpets.

True, wool carpets aren't new, but they never really gained much popularity over the past few decades and even centuries. Why? Who knows, but what is sure is that wool carpets may just be what you're looking for.

Available in many designs and durable enough to last for centuries, wool carpets are the go-to choice for those who want to enjoy the luxurious look of conventiona carpeting without having to worry about its hazardous effects to the environment.

Still Can’t Make Up Your Mind?

Choosing the right flooring takes a lot of time. You have to consider your budget, the time needed for installments, its effects on your house’s insulation and so and so forth.

With so many choices to make, you could definitely use some professional help.

That said, never hesitate to call on Generation Carpet Cleaning and Restoration and ask for their help as to what is best for you, your preferences and your budget.
