Flooring Living Room
I chose the Bamboo flooring foe the living room area because it is a truly sustainable harvested grass that regenerates at a speed faster than hardwood. Bamboo mature rapidly but harvesting does not kill the plant. Duro-design uses only fully mature Moso bamboo which is selected for superior strength and maximum hardness. I think it fits in to my overall concept because I believe wood flooring is traditional.

Duro Design Ash Brown bamboo flooring

Flooring Bedroom
I chose carpet for the bedroom because carpet is a natural insulator. Using it in a wall to wall application increases the R-Value or insulation level of the carpet area. Having carpet helps you save money on your utility cost while reducing energy. Clear Tech Filament PET Caret id the sustainable soft flooring I chose because it is made form recycled plastic bottles. It has the attributes of polyester as well as exceptional performance characteristics such as excellent appearance retention and longterm wear.(shawfloors.com)
