Bamboo Flooring From Empire Today
Bamboo is an eco-friendly favorite when it comes to flooring and Empire Today offers three types of Bamboo to choose from: traditional, strand-woven and hand-scraped. Bamboo is a rapidly renewable resource that produces 35%* more oxygen than an equivalent oak tree. And surprisingly, it’s just as durable as oak hardwood, maybe even more durable, so it’s perfect for today’s active lifestyles. Bamboo’s unique organic appearance adds natural beauty to any room. Plus, it meets the California Air Resource Board standards.
- Rapidly renewable resource
- As durable as oak hardwood
- Available in three types of bamboo
Bamboo is more than a rapidly renewable resource. It has a unique, modern beauty with strength that rivals hardwood. No wonder “bamboo” is the biggest buzzword in the home design industry.
Most homeowners, even if they prefer to use green building materials, wouldn’t dream of sacrificing durability and functionality. Happily, Empire Today’s bamboo flooring delivers on all fronts. Bamboo is, in fact, harder than hardwood, making it a reliably tough material for most rooms. As a bonus, few materials are easier to maintain than bamboo. It’s easy to clean with a simple dust mop, and does not attract dust or dust mites – making it particularly well-suited for allergy sufferers. Usually, homeowners can skip mops and buckets in favor of a simple damp cloth. The need for fewer harsh cleaning products is welcome news for health-savvy homeowners. Bamboo flooring from Empire Today truly is great for the earth, homes, and the people who live in them.
Cork Flooring From Empire Today
Cork Flooring is an especially exciting Empire Flooring option, because it can be harvested without cutting down trees. In addition, cork has some exceptional talents that make it perfect for homes that demand comfort and durability in equal measure. The honeycomb-like structure of cork makes it particularly scratch and dent resistant. It’s also a superb choice for rooms where moisture and humidity might otherwise be concerns. Because cork grows in regions where humidity is high, it has naturally developed resistance to moisture damage and mold. Thus, not only is cork healthy for the environment; it’s healthy for families.
No trees are harmed or felled in the process of manufacturing cork flooring from Empire Today. Instead, the cork is stripped from the bark without damage to the tree. The tree can be re-harvested again and again. You’ll find cork flooring from Empire Today in both tiles and planks. Either style will give your home natural elegance, with the warmth and comfort of a soft surface floor, combined with the durability and easy care of a hard surface. Cork floors have natural thermal properties too, and can reduce energy consumption. Plus, cork’s superior acoustical properties reduce sound.
