Home flooring options that can help save the environment


Floors are not paid as much attention to as other parts of the house, but since floors are a vital part of the home and are not usually changed or replaced for many, many years, deciding what material to use can be a big decision that must be taken with careful consideration.

These days, sustainability plays a huge role in society, and affects the way we live and the place we live in. Here are some flooring options for the modern homeowner who wants to go green.

  1. Natural linoleum – this material is affordable, biodegradable, and long-lasting. It also dries easily (perfect for wet areas), preventing the growth of mould and mildew.
  1. Recycled wood floors – quickly gaining popularity in the market, these are just as economical, yet extremely beautiful.
  1. Bamboo – sharing similar features as hardwood, bamboo flooring is a great greener alternative to timber. Its strength, aesthetic appeal, durability, and easy maintenance make it a popular choice among homeowners.
  1. Polished concrete – a great sustainable flooring option, polished concrete lasts for a very long time. It is both energy and light efficient, and is great for retaining and releasing heat.
  1. Natural carpet – traditional carpets are no longer recommended since they often cause indoor air pollution. Natural carpets, particularly wool, jute, and sisal, help keep homes comfortable and air pollutant-free.

To make the choice easier, here are some factors you need to take into consideration:

  • The people (or pets) that live in your home and any health conditions they may have, like asthma.
  • The most visited or occupied space or room in your home (try to gauge foot traffic and how much pressure and weight your floors would need to bear).
  • How much cleaning and maintenance you are willing to do for your flooring.

Happy floor hunting!
