Popular Eco Friendly Flooring Options

There are so many choices when it comes to home flooring options. Design, color, and surface are important considerations. Durability and price are also things to think about.


Carpet is the most popular choice for most homes. When it comes to prices, natural products usually cost more than synthetics because natural fibers can’t be mass-produced as easily. Carpet in any room is always a cozy option, especially during cold winter months.

Wood Flooring

There are two primary types of wood flooring available. The first is the solid wood floor. The other is the engineered wood floor. They are both popular for their look as well as their price. Engineered wood floors are gaining in popularity because they generally cost less than the solid wood floor.

Laminate Flooring

Real wood, stone and tile are more expensive materials and are almost always considerably more expensive to install. This makes laminate flooring incredibly popular. You get the same look and feel of wood, stone or tile without the price. It is also incredibly durable.

Vinyl and Linoleum Flooring

If you’re on a tight budget, vinyl and linoleum are ideal. Like laminate, they can imitate wood, stone or tile, and when purchased in squares, can be easy enough to install that you might not need a contractor. They are great for quick clean up if you have children.

How To Choose

When it comes time to pick a popular flooring option, consider everything. While you want a specific look and style in your home, you need to think about your budget and your lifestyle. If you have kids or animals you want something more durable. If you live in a colder climate you want something like carpet. Don’t just pick what’s most popular. You want to pick what suits you and your home life best.
