Bamboo Hardwood Flooring

wood-sample-bamboo-largeBamboo flooring can give you the natural beauty of wood in your home while doing so in an environmentally sustainable way. Bamboo has evolved into the wood of choice for making both decorative and practical items that are aesthetically pleasing as well as environmentally friendly.

Bamboo hardwood floors are an excellent alternative to regular hardwood and exotic wood floors. Bamboo is in fact a grass that only takes around five years to mature. Hardwoods are trees that take 50 to 100 years to mature. Slightly more durable than other wood flooring, bamboo floors resist scuffing and gouging, and are easy to maintain. Bamboo flooring is also less expensive than many hardwood flooring options.

Keep in mind that you will want to buy all of your bamboo flooring at the same time. This is because the color of bamboo varies greatly from growing season to growing season, due to different weather conditions and rainfall. This means your floors will not have a consistent color palette if you buy flooring planks from different bamboo plank batches. You'll also want to think about whether you want horizontal or vertical bamboo planks. The direction refers to how the grain of the bamboo lies on the plank..
