Bamboo is one eco friendly option. Bamboo is a fast growing grass that can be selectively harvested annually. It is extremely durable and harder than red oak and maple, has 50% less contraction and expansion than wood and is a renewable resource. Bamboo cabinets offer several benefits and a visual appeal that's uniquely different from cabinetry that's made with more usual materials. Bamboo is strong and hard and is also a highly sustainable natural resource. Bamboo cabinets also offer an alternative to the mass-produced stock cabinets made with a good percentage of particle board and medium density fiberboard (MDF). That's because most bamboo cabinets are made with solid bamboo and/or bamboo plywood.

Bamboo flooring is typically made by slicing bamboo poles into strips. These are destarched by boiling, glued into boards, and milled. Preservative treatment�often boric acid, though more harmful chemicals may be used�is applied during this process. Most bamboo flooring uses a urea-formaldehyde (UF) adhesive in the lamination process. Though the use of UF resins, which emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs), is harmful to indoor air quality, bamboo flooring uses a relatively small amount compared with other materials, such as particleboards. Bamboo flooring products that avoid formaldehyde use are available, including some listed in theGreenSpec Directory. Cork tiles are used as flooring under-layer as soundproof barrier.

Wall and ceiling  used building materials is the gypsum board, also called drywall and sheetrock. This article focuses on explaining the composition, properties and application potentials of gypsum board. Gypsum, in some form, has been used in building construction since the Roman times. It is a mineral found in sedimentary rocks. In drywall, a solid core of gypsum is encased in layers of paper on both sides. This gives it stability and strength, coupled with an ability to be used in a variety of applications.

Natural Paints and Finishes, made from natural raw ingredients such as water, plant oils and resins, plant dyes and essential oils; natural minerals such as clay, chalk and talcum; milk casein, natural latex, bees' wax, earth and mineral dyes. Water-based natural paints give off almost no smell. The oil-based natural paints usually have a pleasant fragrance of citrus or essential oils. Allergies and sensitivities to these paints is uncommon. These paints are the safest for health and for the environment.
