If you’re in the midst of planning out your bathroom design, then you’ve probably realized how important the flooring is going to be. Not only does it need to be durable and long lasting, it needs to be slip-resistant and water-resistant as well. If you’re also trying to build green, you’ll want an eco-friendly floor as well. The following are a few eco-friendly bathroom floor options:
- Concrete floor – Concrete is both durable, water-resistant and cost effective. To give your concrete floor some personality, choose a concrete aggregate that contains recycled materials such as porcelain or glass.
- Terrazzo floor – Terrazzo is incredibly durable and provides a unique, beautiful look. The material is basically made from chips of granite or marble that’s set in concrete and then polished. For a more eco-friendly version, choose terrazzo that uses low-VOC sealers and low-impact aggregates.
- Linoleum floor – Linoleum is fire and water resistant and antimicrobial, perfect for the bathroom. Look for adhesives labeled as no-VOC.
These are a few eco-friendly bathroom floor materials that you can use for your bathroom design. For additional eco-friendly tips and for information about our green building services, be sure to contact us at Trilogy Builds today.
