Flooring Options You Didn’t Even Know You have

Fossilized bamboo flooring is a great, hard alternative to hardwood flooring and a green, environmentally friendly flooring option, to boot!

Bamboo flooring is growing in popularity in Western markets, and manufacturers and customers have been increasing as it gains momentum in the flooring sector. As one of the best green flooring options available to consumers, bamboo flouts its sustainability potential as a green flooring option. I use the word potential here, as I encourage buyers to thoroughly research the manufacturers they consider, to see if their practices really are sustainable, bamboo, or not.

The Good, Bad, and Beautiful Cork Flooring

Cork floors are beautiful and really long-lasting if you look after them well. Although cork has been used for flooring for many decades, it has recently come into fashion in a significant way, mostly due to the fact that it is a renewable green resource that can be bought without the guilt trip associated with buying fine hardwoods that come from old-growth forests or the rain forests.

What Is Cork Flooring?

Cork flooring is a wood floor that’s produced from the bark of cork trees. To make flooring, the cork is ground up, compressed, and shaped into sheets fixed with resins.

Coconut Palm Flooring is a great alternative to traditional hardwood floors

Coconut palm hardwood flooring is a beautiful and sustainable alternative to other hardwood floors. It is more durable than oak or maple, and it comes with plenty of color, pattern, and finishing options. Best, it’s exotic without touching the rainforests. Coconut isn’t a usual hardwood- it belongs to the palm family. Yet it is harder than maple or even oak. So, it’s hard to destroy, long-lasting, and easy to clean. This makes palm flooring a kid and pet-safe flooring choice that is becoming very popular.

Furniture, rugs and natural flooring

Dark furniture paired with hardwood flooring can decrease light in your living space. A good way to remedy this is by adding a splash of brightness by adding a light-toned area rug, like those sold here. The principal factor to decorating with rugs on a hardwood floor well is by creating a theme. Your rug and hardwood mixture should highlight the decor around the house.

It is important to go for rug colors to either match the decor or create an emphatic contrast with your rooms’ layout and style. Another big benefit of a rug and wood flooring combinations is rugs can be used to protect the flooring in high-traffic parts of the home. If you have wood flooring in areas like the hallway, entrance area, and the living room, you should contemplate using area rugs. They decrease the wood floor’s wear and tear while still allowing you to show off your stylish floor in the best possible light.
