Sustainable Flooring Ideas

Accenting your home with beautiful furniture, carpeting, drapery, and other accoutrements will make it feel more inviting, warm, and happy. You can add green to that list with these sustainable flooring ideas. You can even find some of these items in box stores. These rugs, hard floors, tatami inspired bamboo floors, and recycled material flooring will give you the look that ties your room together and keeps it earth friendly.

For starters, West Elm offers a reversible, hand-woven Indian jute rug. Jute is a vegetable fiber that can be woven into durable threads. The rugs come in a variety of neutral colors for that subtle decor look. Bamboo is becoming a popular option for home decorating, likely because bamboo is one of the most rapidly growing plants on the planet. The neutral, miniature hardwood look is great for just about any room design. Nazmiyal gives a vintage look for your home with a handmade Moroccan style rug made from recycled fabrics and old clothing. The result is a unique, one of a kind accent for your home.

Spanish tile manufacturer PLAZA offers ceramic flooring that looks much like hardwood. The EcoWood material has a wood like texture with differing levels of color, is made from 85% recycled material, and won’t fade in the sun, making it great for outdoor decks. PLAZA also makes a porcelain tile made from the EcoWood material that looks like hardwood, but doesn’t require shining. The light grey color is perfect for modern style homes.

Recycled materials contribute highly to sustainability. They remove much of the energy and materials needed to manufacture new products and reduce the emissions needed to harvest, transport, and combine the source materials. Carpeting is cheaper and much more comfortable than hardwood flooring, but it’s difficult to recycle. That hasn’t stopped Bentley Prince Street from offering recycled carpets that look and feel great. The company also promises to eliminate its negative impact on the environment by 2020.

While we’re on the subject of recycled materials, did you know you can get rugs and decks made from recycled materials you wouldn’t think of making up those things? Hipcycle has a floor mat made from the discarded excess rubber from a flip flop shoe factory in the Philippines. The brightly colored mats are eye catching and easy to clean, making them great for shower mats and pool entrance mats. Rill Architects is a LEED certified company that sells a wraparound outdoor deck made from Fiberon, a recycled plastic bottle material that looks like and is just as sturdy as wood. They guarantee this product with a 20 year warranty. This company also offers reclaimed oak flooring for indoor use. The reclaimed wood flooring is an excellent choice for colder climates, as it is great for radiant heating, and it is rot and wear-resistant.

There are quite a number of ways to make your home greener, and sustainable flooring is only one of them.
