What are the most environmentally friendly floors?

Choosing flooring which is both gentle on the environment and your health is very important for an increasing number of consumers. Keep in mind the following eco-friendly floors when you shop around.

Laminate is one of the most popular and versatile flooring types on the market. Fortunately, it is also available in a ‘green’ variety.

Laminate flooring which is majority-constituted with High Density Fibre board (HDF) is eco-friendly as it is solely sourced from well-managed forests. Put simply, this means that for every tree cut down that’s used to create the wood for laminate production, another one is planted.




There are many flooring products which are part-made of recycled materials. This applies to luxury vinyl tiles as well as certain vinyl flooring. Our luxury vinyl tiles are made from 40% recycled materials, which are themselves 100% recyclable.

It isn’t just important that flooring comes from green sources. Packaging and transport materials such as plastic sheeting and cardboard rolls also come from recycled sources so Carpetright environmental credentials are as good as possible.

We’re also very committed to increase our environmentally friendly activities in 2014.

SISAL CARPETSCountry sisal carpet

A material commonly used for rope and twine, this hardy and stiff sisal fibre is a great example of natural flooring. Twisted into carpet fibres to provide users with resilient flooring that can withstand plenty of wear and tear, its natural properties are obvious benefits for eco-conscious buyers.

We even have seagrass carpet products available in certain stores!
