There was a period when the words eco-friendly projected the emotions of weak, boring and simply out of norm substance, it is not the same as of today thankfully. More of the modern-day designers have brought focus onto incorporating lot more of eco-friendly material to meet and cater their clients wants and therefore have raised the bar with designed to offer the world with a wide variety of beautiful selections. Below I have put together a list of eco-friendly material which you could use. Some of which are old and some which will make you think.

One of the newest known material know is cork. Yes, cork that is used to seal tight your favourite bottle of wine does indeed actually make a good grounding material. What properties of cork makes it a more preferable in comparison to timber floors, cork is extracted from the bark of the oak tree and these trees are not cut down for the cork extraction process which makes it a great source. It also comes packed with benefits such as fire retardant and also acts as an insect repellent. And alike wood it can also produce a finish which is similar to adopting and colour, shape and design type for carpet installers.

When you think of linoleum for a material it is common to be instantly reminded of another material which is quite harmful in comparison. Linoleum makes a greater grounding material as a replacement for vinyl flooring which is made of chlorinated petrochemicals which are known to be harmful. Whereas linoleum is made up of much nature friendly material such as linseed oil, tree resins and limestone. Linoleum is quite new to the market it fell off when it was first initially introduced as it was put against competition with its competitor. And then later in time people went back to requesting for linoleum and its back in high demand produced in varies colours and shapes.

Glass tiles are becoming more and more common on every household. This fine grounding is material made of up glass which is separated for recycling. This renewable source is rapidly demanded for floors, bathroom and kitchen walls. Glass like other eco-friendly materials comes with a lot of benefits.  It is not absorptive and won’t change shape or discolour over time and overall easily maintained. The new designs make sure they come in all shapes and colours to help the customer requirements. And unlike porcelain tiles, glass reflects light which would help brighten up the area space where it’s used.
