Tile is a great choice for homeowners who are looking to be eco-friendly. Though certain types of tile come from renewable resources, you should always be aware of where you’re sourcing the product from. Naturally, recycled glass is a common option for homeowners going green. Stone tile, such as slate, is also an eco-friendly choice.
Brick flooring is very similar to stone and concrete in that it is a hard surface material, that is also permeable and needs to be sealed. However, once sealed it becomes a low-maintenance kitchen flooring option, that only has to be swept free of debris every few days. The surface sealant will have to be reapplied periodically, but as long as that is done on a regular basis, a well-installed brick floor can potentially last a lifetime.
Concrete is generally an inexpensive flooring choice if you are in a first story locations, however, it will need to be treated to make it suitable for a space that is frequently trafficked by animals. This requires the application of an appropriate concrete sealer, on a semi-regular basis, to clog the tiny hidden pores in the face of the floor. This protects the material from liquid penetration and stains, creating a solid clear surface that you can then scour clean as necessary.
If you’re remodeling your home or looking for eco-friendly upgrades, new flooring is a great opportunity to start making green changes in your home. Choosing an eco-friendly flooring option does not limit your look! Here are a few eco-friendly flooring options you can use in your home.
