Bamboo flooring is a trendy new way to redesign your home’s interior. In this edition of the blog, we’ll tell you about six advantages bamboo flooring holds over traditional hardwood. Just what kind of advantages do they have?
Advantage One: Extreme durability
A major plus when considering bamboo flooring is how durable it is. This durability applies in two ways: first, they can last up to twenty-five years, withstanding the weight of room furniture and feet pounding across it. Second, it is more resistant to damages. Stains, scratches, and spills won’t show as badly as they would with regular hardwood.
Advantage Two: Superior adaptability
Bamboo flooring can be put in anywhere in your home. This adaptability is superior to regular hardwood. What’s more is that they can agree with any climate. While stone and tile react poorly to temperature variance due to weather, bamboo endures. This versatility also means you can keep the bamboo look consistent throughout your home if you so wish. Other materials such as stone and tile need laminates and some other sort of material to overlap with; bamboo requires nothing of the sort, and thus, helps to keep costs down.
Advantage Three: Supreme eco-friendliness
Bamboo grows much faster than trees, since it is a type of grass. Continual harvest won’t exhaust and kill it, which would happen with a tree. At harvest, all of the bamboo is used and then left alone for several years until it is ready to harvest again. Use of bamboo also reduces deforestation and greenhouse gases; bamboo outperforms regular trees in terms of carbon dioxide conversion to oxygen.
Advantage Four: Simple maintenance
Traditional wood floors need periodic oiling and cleaning. Bamboo doesn’t need these processes as much. In fact, basic sweeping and vacuuming can pick up most of what mess gathers on bamboo flooring. Every so often, you might have to deploy a wet mop, along with a non-alkaline based hardwood floor cleaner. This shouldn’t harm the bamboo, either.
Advantage Five: Easy installation
Easy installation is another bonus to bamboo flooring. It helps to cut down on costs as well, since it doesn’t take much to put it in. Glue, nails, and floating floor are the basic installation materials you need. You could very well install it yourself, but it is much more advisable to rely on the professionals, such as us, to do it for you.
Advantage Six: Gorgeous appearance
Looking for a classy addition to your home to really shine things up? Try bamboo flooring. While it resembles normal hardwood flooring, it can blend in with its surroundings. Multiple colors are available to better match it with the furniture in your rooms. It can also have a gloss or satin finish that won’t wear off as an added layer of beauty.
