The most commonly used material for tile flooring, walls, ceilings and countertops are ceramic. Ceramic tile can offer a long life and a durable surface, even in high traffic areas. Selecting these types of materials are two important characteristics in choosing sustainable and cost effective products. Choose ceramic tiles made from natural clays or recycled glass for a more environmentally friendly solution. Natural clay is a plentiful material and recycled glass reduces material consumption while also having a low embodied energy footprint.
Cork is another material appropriate for tiling. Cork tile comes from the bark of cork trees, creating a sustainable and renewable material while also providing shock absorption and insulation for heating and acoustics. Cork tile is available in an assortment of colors and can be easily installed. The long lasting life of the cork tile makes it a very cost effective for tiling. Cork is a sustainable solution, as it is naturally abundant in nature, requires little energy input and few chemical additives.
