What is the most environmentally friendly flooring choice?

Flooring has come a long way from the days of mud-floors or animal skin rugs. But no matter the style trends, we are finding that our customers want solutions that are as friendly to the environment as they are to their budget. What are your options for environmentally responsible, energy efficient floor covering?

Bamboo

High-quality bamboo flooring is a beautiful and sustainable choice for environment-conscious buyers. Engineered bamboo flooring rivals the performance and appearance of nearly any traditional hardwood option. And an assortment of stains and finishes allow you to select a look that complements nearly any décor.

Silk Carpet

Another natural choice is silk carpet. Rather than relying heavily on compounds like polyester or acrylic, silk carpet is a natural option that doesn’t include petroleum as a raw material.

Hardwood

Traditional hardwood flooring may use trees, but our suppliers utilize responsible forestry techniques. Some even offer FSC certification for the lumber used in their milling and manufacturing process. Hardwood floors are much more durable than most carpets, and any floor that you don’t need to replace will end up generating less waste and using fewer resources.

As you can see, there are quite a few options if you want to cover your floor elegantly with an environmentally responsible choice. Contact us or ask for Customer Satisfaction Manager Jimmy Logan at (864) 229-1376 if you are interested in additional information about these and the other products we carry.
