If you are considering remodeling a room or an entire home, there are so many flooring options available why not consider eco-friendly flooring. Whether you are looking for tile, laminate, carpet, wood, resilient or luxury vinyl tiles or planks, there is an eco-friendly or sustainable—"green" option for your consideration. If you think back, there was a time, not too long ago when we may have thought of eco-friendly flooring options as boring or blah…. That is no longer the case. Eco-friendly flooring is not only fashionable, but also provides a host of other benefits. Ask your FloorMax flooring consultant about eco- friendly or sustainable flooring options.
