Lyptus hardwood floor - $10
Lyptus is a eucalyptus hybrid developed by the Brazilian corporation Fibria. It's grown on sustainably-managed plantations and distributed in North America by Weyerhauser.
It's a beautiful wood with a fibrous grain pattern similar to mahogany. Unlike mahogany however, it can be harvested after 15 years of growth. It's significantly harder than oak and is easy to mill and finish. Lyptus is available all over the world and is increasing its market share every year. If sustainability is one of the things you're looking for in a flooring material, consider Lyptus.
Pros: Gives the feel of mahogany at a lower price
Cons: Tends to draw attention to itself
Suggested uses: Living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, hallways, stair treads
Price range: $5 to $10 a square foot
