The hottest trend in remodeling is going green, and your flooring is no exception. If you want to do everything you can to keep our planet healthy, it only makes sense to choose eco-friendly materials when you are upgrading your home.
When selecting a recycled tile, look for tile containing at least 40% post-consumer recycled material. You can also choose a luxury vinyl tile created from sustainable, eco-friendly, and natural products. You can find tiles to create very unique looks, such as 100% recycled glass tiles that are prized by designers for their gorgeous colors and textures.
Bamboo is one of the most popular eco-friendly materials available for flooring. It is completely non-toxic and durable. Bamboo is not only beautiful, it is the fastest growing plant in the world, which makes this flooring a totally sustainable choice.
Made from 100% recycled aluminum, metal tiles give your home a truly unique look. They go perfectly with the trend towards a more industrial, commercial look in today’s kitchens. These also are a great choice for a unique backsplash or accent wall.
Cork is another current flooring trend that is gaining in popularity. Cork can be installed as tiles or flooring, and gives your home a wonderful warmth. It is renewable, sustainable, fire resistant, insect resistant, and hypoallergenic.
