Hardwood floors have a fabulous look and there is an elegant charm to the mosaic aesthetic of a natural hardwood floor. Without the proper certification, customers can’t be sure their wood floor has been harvested sustainably. Now, though, it’s easy to find quality eco friendly flooring that is a perfect alternative to traditional hardwood.
At The Green Building Center we have a wide selection of natural floor coverings, from renewable materials like bamboo and cork to recycled flooring that is reclaimed from commercial and industrial buildings scheduled for demolition. All of these materials offer a beautiful look with minimal impact on the environment.
Bamboo, for example, looks and behaves just like a traditional hardwood floor, but a bamboo plant can be harvested in 3 to 7 years instead of the decades it could take an oak tree to reach maturity. Eco friendly flooring like Marmoleum, on the other hand, is made from renewable materials such as linseed oil and pine flour, making it a far more ecologically-minded choice than typical vinyl flooring. There are so many options now for green or recycled flooring that it is easy to obtain the materials to achieve any design style.
Whether you are looking for reclaimed wood flooring or a simple but unique carpet, The Green Building Center can help. Contact us for more information or to order your new floor today.
