We, as humans, impact the environment every day, simply by the way we choose to live our lives. Our waste, the burning of fossil fuels, and the amount of pollution we create is causing negative effects in our oceans and in the quality of the air. By simply changing the way we live and choosing to invest in materials that are sustainable and eco-friendly, we can truly make a difference.
Sustainable flooring is flooring that can be recycled or is made of materials that are renewable resources. These materials not only provide you with flooring that is just as good, if not better, than other flooring options, but that also look amazing. By investing in sustainable flooring, you’re opting to help the Earth, one small decision at a time.
Cork, bamboo, and wool are three examples of popular sustainable flooring options that fit all kinds of homes.
.Cork floors are a hardwood alternative that are known for
their comforting nature and easy maintenance. Because
cork is a naturally soft material, cork floors are comfortable
to stand on for long periods. They are also an excellent insulator
and can be installed in areas like living rooms, bedrooms, and areas
with low moisture. Cork floors are easy to clean, and dust can
easily be picked up with a vacuum or broom.
Bamboo floors are a unique type of flooring. Bamboo offers a
budget-friendly choice, low-maintenance, and is perfect because
it fits many design styles. The cost of bamboo floors ranges
depending on the brand and thickness of bamboo, and the
designs can range in color and style as well. To keep them
clean, it’s easy to pick up loose dirt and debris with a
broom or a vacuum.
If you’re looking for a softer solution to your home flooring,
consider carpet. With today’s wool carpet options, you can
get both an eco-friendly flooring along with incredible softness.
Wool carpets are best for increasing the warmth, energy efficiency,
and comfort in any space. They are a renewable flooring option, so
you can trust that you’re helping the environment by choosing
wool over other carpets that are not sustainable.
