I'm interested in bamboo, but I understand it scratches easily and we have a dog. Will her claws scratch up the floors? I like marmoleum and cork but I don't want either of them in the whole house. Are there any options I'm missing, or would bamboo stand up to real life?
Editor: We don't have bamboo flooring ourselves, but we also aren't aware of it being ultra-susceptible to scratching. Any Re-Nesters with bamboo floors care to weigh in on that one?
Another good option for you might be repurposed, or salvaged wood flooring. We really like EcoTimber, and they carry bamboo flooring as well as repurposed wood flooring (which has been salvaged from deconstructed buildings).
We also found this article to be a great resource on the sustainable flooring options available today.
Any other suggestions out there?
