Over the next few weeks, we are going to explore some alternative hardwood floors. Last week, we focused on Cork Flooring. This week, we are going to move on to another alternative hardwood floor: Bamboo Flooring.
Not only is bamboo flooring environmental friendly, like cork flooring, but it is also incredibly strong, durable, cost effective, and incredibly aesthetically appealing. Additional benefits of bamboo flooring include:
- Like most hardwood floors, bamboo flooring is easy to maintain.
- Bamboo flooring is more water resistant than traditional hardwood floors.
- Finally, like traditional hardwood floors, bamboo flooring can be refinished.
About Bamboo Flooring
Technically, bamboo flooring is not actually made of wood. Instead, these floors are mad by harvesting bamboo shoots, slicing these shoots into strips, and then laminating them together to look like traditional wood floors.
So what is bamboo if it is not a wood? Well, technically it is a grass! This is the main reason that bamboo is such an environmentally friendly flooring option. Unlike wood, which can take decades to reach maturity, bamboo shoots grow in a few years and rejuvenate naturally, without any need for re-planting.
