Bamboo and Cork flooring is both green, and extremely popular right now. The ‘Green’ floor and sustainability aspect is one of the reasons it has become so popular. If you are not familiar with these types of flooring lets talk about that for a few minutes.

Most people think «»bamboo floors»» and imagine strips of uneven cane or round poles which would seem difficult or uncomfortable to walk on if used as a floor. Nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is, this relatively new type of flooring is as flat as any other hardwood or laminate floor as we know it. It comes in a variety of color selections, and has taken over in some designer markets.

Bamboo flooring is usually offered in two colors: natural and carbonized. A process of boiling generates the different colors. This carbonized bamboo has a smoke like hue that resembles caramel. And if boiled longer, the starch is caramelized creating the difference in the hue, whereas, a shorter boiling time retains the natural blonde color of the bamboo. Still, there is a range of shades within the natural and the carbonized bamboo. The natural blonde flooring is harder than the carbonized flooring, which is lessened by thirty percent. Even so, each type remains as hard as a few hardwoods. The grains of the bamboo being vertical or flat give each a different look. It comes pre-finished with a coating that protects its fibers. It also receives a sealer and a coating for scratch resistance. Bamboo flooring also has a snap together option. It also comes in tongue and groove, floating, and a nailed option.

Cork flooring can be beautiful in a child’s room, family room, music room, kitchen, or bathroom — a cork floor is always the correct green flooring choice.

Cork is a substance taken from the cork oak tree’s bark. This oak tree is native to the Mediterranean. One cork tree in Portugal planted in 1873 is still a producer. Cork flooring like wood and bamboo are favorable environmentally. It is a very unusual type of floor. It is great at suppressing sound, it is a good thermal insulator, and it is safe for people with allergies. Cork flooring is a shock absorber, which makes it good for rooms where people stand a lot. There is an array of colors in cork, shapes of tile, and patterns. It’s insect resistant. The suberin in it also resists mold and keeps cork from rotting, if wet for an extended period.
