Flooring surely becomes very important part of the house and people have to choose it carefully for ensuring that they are able to live in the house which is suitable with their expectation. There are some factors which will be considered when people are looking for the best floor solution for their home. It can be about the look, price, and material but recently people are also considering about the eco friendly aspects of the flooring material. Some options of flooring material can really be dangerous for the environment but here are some options of sustainable flooring which should be chosen for eco friendly home.
Maybe people are not so familiar with cork material for flooring because it is pretty new option in the flooring material choice. It is used often on the wall but people can find that cork can be very great flooring material and of course it is eco friendly because it is harvested from the cork oak tree bark. Since it is the bark which is harvested, the tree is not cut down so it is able to grow back in three years. It is very sustainable for sure since the cork floor can last for 10-30 years.
The next most eco friendly flooring material which people should consider is bamboo. There is no question that this material is already considered as eco friendly material for other things including for the home furniture for instance, but maybe people do not use the bamboo for their flooring material often. Bamboo tree is actually a grass but it comes with tree characteristic and when it is used as flooring material, it has the hardwood characteristic. Installation can be very easy as well for the maintenance. It is also durable. The most important thing is that bamboo can grow very quickly compared to the hardwood tree.
