Home tour includes eco-friendly building with bamboo flooring While many interior design enthusiasts may enjoy perusing magazines to get inspiration, the Ottawa Citizen reports that the Glebe House Tour recently took the homes out of the pages to give individuals a first hand look at a collection of beautiful homes.
"Some people do it just because they like decorating magazines and it's something to do with a friend, and some people [participate] because they are looking for renovation ideas, design ideas, paint colors," Suzanne McCarthy, chair of the tour, told the news outlet.
According to the news source, the tour is in its 10th year, and this time around featured a number of impressive abodes. Along with a building that won the 2009 Ottawa Green Renovation of the Year, another house featured a wealth of eco-friendly aspects such as solar panels and bamboo flooring throughout the interior.
Those who may be looking to include environmentally friendly elements in their house should consider installing bamboo flooring. TLC.com reports that, in addition to the fact that it is made from a sustainable source, the material is also especially durable and versatile to it can last homeowners for a long time.
