Sustainable Flooring Options

Caring for the planet and generating less waste has become increasingly important to us. Read our sustainable flooring options blog.

It is a consideration when choosing something for our home and indeed refurbishing our homes, such as a flooring project. Is a flooring product sustainable? Can it be recycled? Can it be repaired or restored?

When it comes to refurbishments, businesses are looking for more ways to reduce costs, as well as help the planet, so choosing an eco-friendly flooring option is an ideal solution.

Environmentally friendly sustainable flooring

Choosing a new floor for your home is an important decision as we tend to live with the same flooring for many years.

Wood flooring lasts much longer than carpet, making it a far more sustainable flooring option as well as a cost-effective solution. Wood flooring can also be restored reducing the need for waste that goes into landfill.

At Sussex Sustainable Flooring we believe that flooring should come from a sustainable source, and also have the ability to be maintained and refinished, therefore there is less waste and less cost. So not only does the planet win, but also your pocket.

We only supply environmentally friendly sustainable flooring options available to view in our showroom. Here are some of the natural flooring options:

Sustainable Flooring Options: European Oak Flooring

A beautiful natural wooden floor is a feature of your home. Knowing your wood floor has come from a sustainable source using a renewable material and is helping to reduce the impact on the environment, is a great feeling.

As wood flooring is durable and can be refinished, it helps to reduce not only waste but also cost.

European oak flooring can come in several forms – engineered wood, solid wood, reclaimed wood, and parquet flooring, to suit your budget, requirements, and sustainable flooring choice. The choice is yours.
