Green is in!
The hippy movement has left an impact on our society and here it is! The 70s are back in the best way possible, recycled flooring materials. Many interior designers have been installing cork, bamboo, and reclaimed wood or engineered wood. Many cork floors are installed because they are known to be non-toxic and the trees the cork is taken from regenerate every harvest.

Adding unique notes of designs and colors into a bathroom floor creates a sense of distinctiveness. A new and different floor from the rest of the home makes a bathroom feel like it is truly it’s own and creates a warm and inviting sense for friends, family, and guests alike.
