When it comes time to pick out your flooring, you'll have plenty of options to choose from no matter where you go. Homeowners love everything from carpet to linoleum, but you might have your heart set on hardwood floors.

Hardwood flooring is a beautiful addition to any farmhouse, especially if it plays into your interior design. You might dream about rolling gorgeous rugs over your floors, but you don't want to support hardwood flooring businesses that don't think about their environmental impact.
