Specialized Flooring Choices
Cork. Cork has grown in popularity over the last few years as an eco-friendly flooring material. It’s especially great for certain areas of the home, like playrooms and kitchens. It’s a hard surface material with a soft surface feel, giving it a wood-like appearance that is bouncier and more comfortable to stand on than traditional hardwood floors.
Rubber. An interesting flooring material, rubber is popular in some commercial environments in the Burnsville, Apple Valley, Eagan, & St. Paul areas, such as gyms and other exercise facilities. It’s low maintenance, easy to clean, fairly durable, and has some bounce to it that provides a soft and safe landing.
Sisal. Sisal carpeting is another eco-friendly material, as it’s made from natural grasses. It’s very durable, but not as soft as other carpet materials. These qualities make it a great option for indoor-outdoor carpets or placement in high traffic areas of the home. It can add a natural, elegant look to a space, as well as increase its “green” factor.
Linoleum. Linoleum flooring is a green flooring option, made from natural materials like linseed oil, recycled wood fiber, cork dust and limestone. It is naturally anti-bacterial and biodegradable.
