Bamboo Flooring & Alternatives
By: Jaimie Pearce
Bamboo Flooring Definition
In a home, the flooring gives a cushioning feel. The air cells within the cork also trap heat and act as an insulator. The floor is also sound-resistant and is fire-resistant to a certain degree.
The flooring can be commonly seen in kitchens, hallways, and bathrooms.
Linoleum flooring does have some disadvantages in the home. Chemical corrosion is a possibility when using linoleum flooring. Also, indentations are easily created by things such as heels and furniture legs.
Recycled Metal Tiles
The tiles create a modern look in the home and are most commonly used in bathrooms.
These tiles can be a little more expensive than most flooring. They also require a glazing which adds protection, stain resistance, and abrasion resistance. This can be done in an environmentally way. Always make sure to choose the correct adhesive to ensure the best air quality for the room.
