Bamboo , Linoleum & Carpet: Eco-Friendly Flooring Options

lenoliumAs more and more designers are looking for eco-friendly materials for their clients, manufacturers have started to step up and give the design most preferred by people. Here are the three most popular eco-flooring options you will be interested in. 

  1. Bamboo: Another sustainable alternative to hardwood is bamboo. Bamboo grows quickly, reaching maturity for harvesting within only three years. Although it’s known for flexibility, it provides a very hard surface. For this reason, it’s often used in commercial settings and other high-traffic areas.
  1. Linoleum: Cheap, thin versions of this flooring gave it a bad name. What’s more, linoleum and vinyl—not eco-friendly—are often confused. While vinyl’s a synthetic material, linoleum’s organic. Other organic materials are often added, like wood flour, pine rosin, cork dust, and various pigments for coloring.

This high-quality, versatile flooring is making a comeback. One example is Marmoleum, with design options including stone and wood grain styles. The final product is free of toxins, durable, attractive, and comfortable to walk on when combined with a soft underlayment.

  1. Carpet: If a soft, luxurious feeling is what you like in your home, carpet’s still an option. You might have heard of synthetic-fiber carpets releasing chemicals added during manufacturing. Eco-friendly carpeting is free of those chemicals, making it perfect when air quality is a concern.

Pure wool, manufactured without dyes and chemicals, is a good option. And carpet tacking, like non-toxic glues for hard floorings, will ensure you enjoy great air quality and a good relationship with the environment.

There are even more options for green flooring. Natural stone and brick are two more. Both are highly durable, attractive and easy to clean. With a little research, you can have your dream home, complete with eco-friendly flooring.
