Green thinkers consider cork flooring to be very eco-friendly because it's a renewable resource: it's made from the bark of the cork oak, and the tree is never felled. During its periodic harvesting, the outer bark is stripped from the trunk without injuring the trees, which live for more than a century. Cork has been a popular flooring material in Europe for many years, but here across the Pond it's relatively new. Known for its sound-deadening qualities and durable surface, it's available in sheeting and tiles, the latter being the easiest to install.

A flooring contractor will charge $767 to install and finish 12-inch square, 3/16-inch thick cork tiles in a 10-by12-foot room. This includes labor and material. A handy homeowner can do the job for $635, the cost of the tiles and finish and save 17 percent. The key to good results for any flooring installation is the subfloor, which should be clean, dry, sound and level.

You'll find cork floor tiles sold at most home centers and flooring retailers; to find the material online, type "cork floor tiles" in a search engine.
