It comes from one of the fastest growing plants in the world, making it easy to harvest and renew, unlike other traditional flooring materials like natural stone or hardwoods. In this day and age where we are ever more conscious of the choices we make and how they impact the environment, an eco-friendly floor is a considerate choice.
Bamboo is taken from the prolific bamboo plant, cut into strips, and is then sealed and treated to create sturdy planks that are ready to be installed in your home. They resemble hardwoods in color and character but also have their own unique charm with their distinct ridges and notches. Also, you can order bamboo in different sizes and finishes to adapt this material to the interior you want to upgrade.
The strength of bamboo is also something to consider when exploring this flooring alternative- it is resistant to scratches and dents. This flooring recovers from trauma from dropped objects well as it is very resilient against the many unexpected spills, messes, and drops that happen to our floors in daily living.
While hardwoods expand and contract to high and low temperatures, bamboo has been found to warp less than half as much as their traditional hardwood counterparts. This decreases the chances for this material to warp and bulge, which means you experience fewer creaks and squeaks when walking across your bamboo floors.
This material is highly resistant to water and moisture, so you can have this flooring anywhere in your home, including the bathroom or kitchen. Also, since fungus and mold thrive in moisture, you can rest assured that your bamboo floors will be unlikely to harbor elements that trigger sickness or allergies.
Bamboo flooring also has ability to resist heat, making it even more perfect for any environment. Rooms like kitchens that are prone to heat exposure and hot spills can now benefit from the sophistication of bamboo's look.
