These days, it’s vital for hardwood floors to come from a sustainable source. But can hardwood truly be sustainable?

That is an important question that we are going to address here today. Let's look at what it means and how you can choose hardwood flooring that meets this requirement.

The sustainability of wood floors

It does take a bit of work but finding sustainable wood flooring options is easier than you think if you know where to look, or have the assistance of a flooring professional who knows this product line. Sustainable wood is legally sourced, and you’ll always know where the materials came from.

There are other ways to make sure you are choosing sustainable options, as well. Reclaimed wood, for instance, harvested from various structures or river bottoms, is one of the most eco-friendly ways to floor your home with wood.

Another alternative is salvaged wood, usually in the form of storm-damaged trees or those that are old or diseased. Another is cork, which is harvested from the cork oak tree's bark and not the actual tree itself. Cork bark can be harvested once every three years, while the tree continues to grow and thrive.

Don't forget to consider varieties such as palm wood and bamboo. Both of these offer various colors, formats, and unique attributes that make it an excellent choice for many rooms throughout your home.
