Bamboo is a traditional Asian building material that’s been used in China, Japan and Southeast Asia households for thousands of years. Contrary to what most people assume, bamboo is not a tree but a really tall type of grass. It grows to maturity within five years and can be regrown in bamboo farms easily.

The lumber derived from bamboo is light but very durable. It can be cut up, dried, finished and polished to form a versatile building material that works great on flooring. Since it has wood-like properties, bamboo flooring is great for keeping a constant temperature underfoot. It’s an excellent insulator, and it’s a great fit for areas with cold weather. Bamboo is usually pale when harvested but it can be treated, resulting in a variety of richer colors and hues. It’s also a natural pest repellent, which means fewer bugs invading your home.

Cork

When people hear the word cork, the things that usually come to mind are either wine bottles or drainage plugs. What a lot of people don’t realize is that cork is an excellent option for flooring. It’s environmentally safe, processed with minimal VOCs, renewable, fire retardant and looks great in most design schemes. And like bamboo, cork is great for insulation. Cork’s is derived from the harvested bark of cork oak trees in the Mediterranean region. The harvesting process causes minimal damage and oaks grow back in time for another harvest. When it comes to style, cork flooring from Fine Floors by Ed White offers a chic look that can be either classic or rustic depending on your preference. 

Concrete

Invented by the ancient Romans, concrete has been the building material of choice by many great civilizations since. It can be shaped into just about any form imaginable, and it hardens like rock in a short span of time. It's fire retardant, it’s affordable, and best of all it doesn’t require the use of VOCs.

Concrete is typically used as the foundation for flooring, but people tend to cover it with carpets, tiles, vinyl, linoleum, etc., because raw concrete can look rather plain. However, Fine Floors by Ed White carries the latest trends in concrete, which offer a variety of colors and finishes making concrete a beautiful flooring option. Concrete can be polished, smoothened and stained with colors for a more exciting look. It’s easy to clean, and it doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. Concrete is also a great option for warm climates. In terms of cost and versatility, it’s hard to match what concrete brings to the floor.

Glass Tile

Those of you who are familiar with recycling probably know where glass tiles come from. This dazzling flooring material is derived from repurposed wine, beer and juice bottles. Today glass is one of the most environmentally friendly choices you can make for low-traffic floor spaces in your home. Glass is non-allergenic and it’s non-porous. That means it doesn’t allow water to seep in, which leaves no room for mold and bacteria to grow. Converting glass into tiles is an efficient process and doesn’t involve the use of environmental toxins.

Linoleum

In our experience, many people have trouble distinguishing linoleum flooring from vinyl. Both are great choices, and you can’t go wrong with either of them. However, if you’re concerned about health and environmental responsibility, linoleum is the clear organic winner. Linoleum is made from cork dust, linseed oil and tree resins – all of which are organic. Vinyl is primarily composed of petroleum products, which can have potentially harmful chemical residues.  Linoleum on the other hand does not, and in addition to being organic and fired retardant is a versatile design choice available in many different colors and patterns.
