Buying tips for eco friendly flooring
Linoleum was patented in the 1860s and has never gone out of style! It is fabricated from renewable materials including tree resins, recycled wood flour, linseed oil, cork dust, and mineral pigments, and mounted on a canvas or jute backing. This makes linoleum easy to recycle, and it’s biodegradable, too!
Benefits of Linoleum include:
Variety of both neutral and bold colors
Ease of Maintenance
If you are looking for an environmentally friendly, natural option, cork is an excellent choice! Cork can be harvested from a tree without damaging the tree or stunting its growth. This makes cork the most naturally renewable resource for flooring. It is also bio-degradable and recyclable. There are a surprising number of textures and designs from which to choose. Small granules give your floor that traditional cork flooring look that is universally appealing. A peeled cork texture gives it a beautiful natural look. Use plank-shaped cork if you are installing over existing flooring but use tile-shaped if it needs to be glued down. We can help you determine which option is best.
Benefits of Cork Flooring include:
Eco-friendly and non-toxic
Resilient - soft and comfortable underfoot
Practical - sealed for easy maintenance
Softens room noise
Eco Friendly Carpet & Rugs
If you are looking for green options in soft flooring, we can show you a variety of wool, jute, and sisal products.
Wool carpet and rugs actually purify indoor air, help maintain optimum temperature and moisture levels, balance noise in the room, are naturally flame resistant, and feel wonderful underfoot.
Jute and sisal are natural, green fibers and come in a beautiful array of colors and patterns, are sustainable and biodegradable.
Options abound, and we will walk you through them and provide recommendations best suited for your project, lifestyle, and environmental concerns and needs.
