Bamboo flooring is a great alternative to hardwood because it is beautiful, unique, and durable. At Floor Coverings International Downers Grove, we carry a wide variety of bamboo flooring. Bamboo floors are popular because they provide the natural feeling of hardwood while benefiting the environment. Bamboo regrows at a much quicker rate than other hardwoods, thus serving as an eco-friendly material. Bamboo is naturally a lighter wood, which makes for a unique look and feel.
Pros of Bamboo Flooring
- Like hardwood floors, bamboo flooring is very durable and will hold up to scratches and stains.
- It is slightly cheaper than hardwood.
- It is a very eco-friendly option, having a lesser environmental impact than other flooring options.
- It is very easy to maintain.
- It is a great option for pet owners, because the softer material is less susceptible to scratches.
There are many finishes for your bamboo floor that can create a new look by increasing the gloss or staining the color of the wood. Additionally, the finish will provide protection against scuffs, scratches, and spills. You can also stain the bamboo with darker stains for a more dramatic look. Like other hardwoods, bamboo should not be installed in areas where there are high levels of moisture such as bathrooms or basements.
