Green Your Bedroom: Flooring

Rug on wooden floor The bedroom’s where you spend much of your time. Even if you’re sleeping for most of it, it’s important to ensure that your home’s most intimate room is in line with the principles of sustainability. This week’s tips will help you get there.

Tip #4: Look Under Your Feet

You may not think about your bedroom’s floor all that often, but it’s yet another part of your home that you can likely make greener. If you’re thinking of replacing carpet with a more solid surface (to avoid carpet’s host of environmental and health problems), consider going with cork or reclaimed wood.

Rugs can help your flooring last longer; find one you love at a garage sale or thrift store. Or snag a snazzy one at a neighborhood swap or by visiting some online swap sites.

Tell us: What’s your favorite type of flooring?
