Bamboo flooring has become a remodeling favorite as the home market shifts towards more environmental options. Bamboo comes from natural vegetation that grows feverishly, making it a hot commodity. This flooring in particular is easy to maintain and makes a less overall impact on depleting resources, unlike some hardwood species which can take years to mature and produce. Bamboo can also be refinished, influencing its general durability and allowing for longtime use.

We’ve all heard about using cork boards to spice up an office or dorm space, but cork has quickly become a trendy and sustainable flooring option. It’s eco-friendly flooring that comes from replenishable and naturally recurring materials, making it a stylish and viable alternative. Cork, like bamboo, can be refinished, making it lasting and versatile as well.

As new flooring alternatives come to light, carpet has managed to reign supreme in living rooms.

Eradicating the grey area, the consensus for interior design in 2019 appeases both tastes.

Terrazzo sounds like just a fancy word, yet its notable name is just as distinct as its look. It’s actually a type of hard surface flooring that is climbing the trending charts. Terrazzo has a unique appearance, offering up a wide range of colors and styles. What gives terrazzo its interesting look is the combination of materials, ranging from granite to marble to glass, which is then bound together physically or chemically. This stellar choice is known to call attention out in bathrooms and kitchens, but can amplify any space.

Whatever color is chosen is sure to bring life to the space where the cabinets reside.

Quartz is used for countertops mainly for its non-porous characteristics, along with its durability and stain resistance. That, coupled with tremendous looks, are key drivers for its growing status.
