The world of flooring choices is changing and there are numerous products that take a different slant on covering your floor. One of those is cork flooring. Cork used as a floor covering? "Yes indeed! It is an environmentally correct product that is warm in the winter, comfortable and resilient. For those allergy sufferers, it is hypoallergenic and inherently resistant to molds, mildews and common pests," says Jeff Blackburn, Technical Advisor at AffordaFloors.com. "Cork contains no VOC's (PRWEB) November 21, 2006 -toxic choice for flooring." For the designer in you, it is a different look. Something you don't find in every home, but is quite attractive in design.

Another new choice is a hardwood floor that is not nailed or glued down. It has a genuine hardwood surface, but the structure underneath is much like laminate flooring. "It clicks together and floats over your subfloor. So you can have a genuine hardwood floor that you can easily install yourself without the messy glue or nails," states Blackburn.

Even though it has been available for a number of years, it is just now taking a good hold in sales and many people are becoming aware of bamboo as a floor covering. Blackburn says "This is another material that is a "green" product. Like cork, it is a very environmentally friendly flooring. Where it can take trees up to fifty years to grow back after being harvested, bamboo grows back in just two years. It is a very durable floor that adds an exotic look to any room." And bamboo now comes in a number of different styles, one of the more popular being strand woven bamboo flooring, which adds a bit of a different look to the bamboo.

Another area to look for a more exotic look is hardwood flooring. Instead of the traditional oak wood, why not check out some of the exotic species that are now readily available and quite affordable. Species such as brazilian walnut (also know as tigerwood or Ipe), Rosewood or cabreuva to add a rich, warm look to a room. "There are so many exotic species available at very reasonable prices now there is no reason not too consider using them for a very special look in your home," says Blackburn. It's the same for laminate flooring. Laminates have an incredible variety of styles and colors now that look like the genuine hardwood, even the exotic ones.

So why settle for the same old styles that you see in every home? Choices abound in the sheer variety of styles and colors making it a real treat to design a living space that will get plenty of compliments from family and friends. And the nice part is that they are only a mouse click away!
