Popular Sustainable Flooring Options

Colour, surface texture, room usage and price all come into play when homeowners commit to a flooring style. One thing homeowners don’t have to compromise on is their selection of green options.

Here is a list of popular products

Salvaged wood. Buying reclaimed lumber continues to get easier for those shopping online. In some instances, it’s even less expensive relative to the cost of new hardwoods.

Bamboo. High abundance and a natural look make sustainable bamboo an attractive flooring option. Bamboo grows to maturity in three to five years, about a quarter of the time it takes to grow trees used for hardwood. It’s great choice for a room with low humidity.

Linoleum. Unlike vinyl flooring, which is a synthetic product made of chlorinated petrochemicals, linoleum is manufactured from natural compounds that include linseed oil, cork dust, various tree resins and ground limestone. With natural, renewable elements used in manufacturing, the popularity of this eco-friendly flooring option continues to rise.

Cork. Like bamboo, cork is quickly renewable. Cork has antimicrobial properties to reduce allergens, is fire retardant and provides a comfortable feel under foot. Cork flooring can be finished in a variety of paints and stains, complementing any room setting.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Dan Cooper Group

Thanksgiving is a time for friends and family to come together and gives us the opportunity to express gratitude for all that enriches our lives.

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” – Oprah Winfrey

May the good things in life be yours in abundance, not only at Thanksgiving, but throughout the coming year! We are extremely grateful for your continued support and loyalty and wish you and your family a wonderful holiday weekend!
