There are plenty of reasons to want a natural looking floor. Some people enjoy the natural grace of hardwood while others love the great outdoors and want to inspire that feeling within their home. Whatever your reason for wanting a natural looking floor, you’ll find a great option below in our list of the top three most natural flooring options.

Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood is the go-to option when it comes to natural looking flooring material. Hardwood has been popular for centuries, and for good reason. It comes in a variety of species, each with its own look and grain pattern.

Hardwood is aesthetically pleasing, easy to clean and maintain, and if properly cared for a hardwood floor can last for decades. With colors ranging from the light beige of bamboo to the rich brown of maple, with hardwood you’ll easily be able to achieve the look you want.

Cork Flooring

If you want to take your love of natural flooring a step further, consider the all-natural and environmentally friendly cork floor. Cork flooring is bark harvested from the cork tree after it has naturally been shed. This makes cork perhaps the most ecofriendly flooring available.

Cork is also a softer material than hardwood, which many enjoy. Not only is cork easy on the joints, it also insulates like carpet. However, cork can be damaged much easier than hardwood, and if spills aren’t cleaned up right away, they can be absorbed into the wood.

Luxury Vinyl Tile Flooring

Vinyl tile is incredibly versatile with looks ranging from stone to hardwood and beyond. No matter the look you are trying to achieve, there is probably a variation of vinyl tile that can achieve that look. While not all vinyl tiles feature a natural look, the ones that do can be quite convincing which is why it makes our list of most natural flooring options.
