In new builds and remodels, many green-conscious builders and homeowners choose bamboo as a hardwood alternative for flooring, but there are other beautiful eco-friendly options. One of them is eucalyptus. Its benefits include:
For certain applications, engineered eucalyptus wood can be used as an alternative to solid eucalyptus. When installing a floor in areas more prone to high humidity or variations in moisture, engineered eucalyptus flooring might be preferred. Engineered eucalyptus offers other benefits as well: It's available in wider widths than the hardwood version; the surface veneer is a full-sawn veneer, which means it can be refinished multiple times; and it often comes in a tongue-and-groove construction that allows it to be stapled, glued down or floated.
Harvested from a 100 percent renewable crop, eucalyptus floors are beautiful, eco-friendly, cost-effective and a long-lasting alternative to traditional hardwood floors.
Consider cork for durability, comfort and renewability.
