Recycled Leather For Your Floors by Ana Morales

While it is unusual to conceive of leather for flooring, recycled leather tiles are gaining popularity in the interior design world. The look and feel of a recycled leather floor is remarkable, and it adds a unique touch of luxury to any environment. There is extensive options in regards to colors, textures, and finishes to suit your particular installation. In a home you can use recycled leather in closets, powder rooms, offices, theaters, bedrooms, dining rooms, ceilings, kitchens, backsplashes and even stair cases!

Those of you with an environmental conscience will appreciate the fact that recycled leather tile is LEED certified. It is made by collecting real leather scraps from furniture, shoe, car and other factories. It’s not only cool looking, but it’s great for the environment as well. One great advantage of using recycled leather tile is that it is easy to install. Leather tiles come with a pre – glued backing. The pre- glued backing allows the tiles to install directly over drywall, primed concrete, or plywood with no further adhesive application. You simply remove the liner and apply the tiles directly to the surface. Installation is hassle-free and completed in minutes.

Leather Floors will wear in a manner similar to a linoleum floor and have indentations comparable to that of a high quality cork floor. These tiles are practical and made with the user in mind while being of uncompromising beauty and texture.  Leather floors over time will develop a rich patina. Their look will improve with age –in a manner similar to the patina developed by a leather sofa. Leather floors will take on the characteristics of their environment, creating a truly unique and personal floor. The care required for a leather floor is similar to what you need to do for a wood floor. Normal maintenance includes, vacuuming with a soft brush, damp mopping with a very well wrung out mop.

Recycled leather tile is attractive, unique and durable, it is an excellent choice for flooring that will add to the value to your home. The look and feel of a leather floor is remarkable…Try it for yourself!
