    hmmm a cork rubber hybrid expanko | products

    I wish it didn't look so commercial. It's also pretty expensive & doesn't look great.

        haha, love your reason for editing.

        Love the idea of both being that they are so sustainable, but I really want to find something lower maintenance.

        I do buy bamboo for other things in the house when I can. Lately I've just been buying all used.

        I found some more recycled rubber floors that might look nice. I think i just need to stop googling & go to some stores.

          I looked at so many options & they all looked too commercial. The commercial stuff is also really expensive. So we are sticking with porcelain tile. I have the tile picked out. Now i'm getting estimates on installation.

                we put vinyl in our bathroom. White marble and the glue has come through and it looks dirty all the time. we done black marble in the bedroom and it looks fine. Also I would advise using something called liquid nails, makes them stick better. If you don't use it the tiles will pull up on the sides in time.
