Looks great, renewable and the new rage
by Ashley Pridgen
Some things just make easy sense. And if you are looking for beautiful and environmentally friendly flooring, look no further than high quality bamboo. Bamboo is a grass, not a timber, which allows for the floor to be both strong and flexible at the same time. It is also a sustainable resource, regenerating in approximately seven years as opposed to 20-plus years for mature timber. This resource’s abundance and quick growth turnaround allow it to be priced far below your typical hardwood floor.
Although the price and durability of a bamboo floor cannot be matched, the broad spectrum of uses it offers and the warmth it adds to your home are unmistakable. It is one of the most unique flooring options you can get. It offers a much more subtle graining pattern, replaced by a more ring-like pattern. Bamboo flooring can be stained and finished just like regular hardwood, and it can be fit into any room. There are several methods for installing bamboo: floating floor, nailing and gluing, each with its own benefits. The increased interest in the appeal and the environment has led to numerous offices, restaurants, hotels and high traffic areas installing bamboo.
The benefits of choosing bamboo flooring are chiefly found in the warm, comforting ambience it creates. Bamboo flooring immediately draws attention to a room, giving it character and focus. With its superior durability, environmental benefits and natural beauty, bamboo flooring is the flooring of choice for generations to come.
