Durable & Environmentally Friendly Flooring
Bamboo Flooring: Today's Alternative to Traditional Hardwood Floors
Bamboo flooring is growing increasingly in popularity because of its exotic beauty, cost effectiveness, and eco-friendliness.
One of the biggest advantages is that it is highly renewable. Unlike wood, which can take up to 50 years to regenerate, a bamboo plant only takes around seven years. The flooring is made from the Moso species, a type which pandas and other wildlife do not eat. It is treated against insects and moisture without using pesticides or harsh chemicals.
Bamboo flooring is harder than most wood flooring because it can withstand hard impacts and heavy foot traffic. That makes it well-suited for the living room, hallways, and kitchen. It is also suitable to use in laundry rooms because it does not contract and swell like hardwood.
Variety of Styles
The natural style features a light blond color that will blend well with a variety of color schemes and decor. The carbonized is darker because of the caramelized sugars that occurred from extended boiling times. This flooring offers a rich, warm style that can add character to your home or office. Stained bamboo comes in a variety of shades. Its natural grain provides a unique look that can go well with your decor.
Bamboo flooring is easy to take care of. You do not have to use special cleansers to keep your floor looking beautiful. In fact, you probably shouldn't because it might damage the floor. Instead, use a broom to sweep up dust and dirt.
