Floors are an important part of any home as they literally appear in every room you visit. That being said, there doesn’t seem to be many options when it comes to flooring choices. But that’s only if you don’t know about bamboo flooring. While this option is certainly picking up steam, bamboo still offers a unique look you’ll love and your visitors won’t stop talking about.
Home bamboo flooring is a bit of a modern phenomenon in the Western world, but it’s moving fast. There are already a number of companies that specialize in installing bamboo floors. In fact, you can even find kits that will help you handle the process yourself so you can save money.
Bamboo floors are most closely comparable to hardwood floor. But the texture is very different, especially depending on what variety you decide to purchase. While bamboo is certainly a strong plant (the strongest, in fact), bamboo floors will still need to be treated with respect and maintained regularly.
One of the best features of bamboo flooring is that it comes from a sustainable source. Bamboo grows at a notoriously fast pace, so by the time you’re putting your flooring down, chances are more bamboo is already growing in the place yours came from.
If you want a new and different look for your home’s floors, consider using bamboo.
