Coconut Flooring—Bring the Tropics to Your Home!

Move over bamboo! There's a new building material that's slowly creeping its way into homes all around the world - coconut! Made from recycled coconut shells, these floors are usually created in tiled patterns and are designed for interior use. Home and business owners are using them for walls, furniture, and even flooring (low- to medium-traffic only).

Coconut flooring comes in a variety of patterns, shapes, and colors and are perfect for that tropical ambiance. When paired with darker wall shades, or metal and glass designs, coconut flooring looks very chic and modern.

While visiting a home in Asia, I stayed at a house with beautiful hardwood flooring and matching tile décor on the walls. To my surprise, the owner of the house revealed that the floors were made from coconut trees! The floor looked like ordinary hardwood but a shade darker; the tiles on the wall were the same color and had a crossing pattern that looked just like coconut shells. Very beautiful and exotic looking!

As we continue the "green" trend, architectural engineers are contributing to the cause as they come up with more natural products to build and design your homes. What's best about coconut tile flooring is that it's very eco-friendly. It's great to know that they're slowly coming up with more choices for "green building"!

For another interesting and eco-friendly flooring type, read our article on peach pit flooring.

Wow! I love hearing about new and unique eco-floors. After reading your post, I looked up some pictures and found some really gorgeous coconut flooring. Thanks for a great post!

It seems like this type of flooring isn't very logical. It isn't very water resistant. It will actually warp and deform if it gets wet and stays wet for too long. A friend of mine had it in her backyard (stupid move) and when it rained it warped the entire floor even though it was under a cabana. Trying to stay hip? Trying to go green? I do not recommend using coconut floors for anything. just my opinion

I did buy North Face Softshell Hybird last year and I want to buy 2012 North Face For Cheap vest this year. The weather was beautiful and as the others have said, most of the tricky bits are early on. The dark for me was not an issue, in fact I enjoyed it and was pretty much on my own for much of the night sections. However, the last 10k are nasty, so if you can, go up and run them before and you will know what's coming. The upside of that is that once you're that close to the finish, you know you are going to make it. I didn't have much of a stop at the last checkpoint, and in hindsight I should probably have eaten and regrouped a bit before heading off. It is an awesome event, you will enjoy it.

We certainly have this kind of flooring before. I must say it looks really nice but it's brittle, it easily breaks and it doesn't age that nice. - Carmack Moving and Storage
