Bamboo Flooring For Your Home
Bamboo flooring is gaining a lot of traction in the U.S. in recent years. As far as flooring goes, bamboo offers a great deal of versatility, making it an excellent choice for many modern and contemporary homes. There are even some varieties and finishes that are compatible with rustic homes making it a more widely sought after material for homeowners. Below are a few of the benefits homeowners love about their bamboo floors.
Bamboo grows fast and is easily replaces itself. Other hardwoods may take decades to replace themselves in nature. This isn’t the case with bamboo. Not only does it grow quickly, reaching maturity in three to five years, but it also occupies little real estate and can grow 80 to 90 feet tall by its fifth year. This fact makes bamboo a green choice for flooring as long as you are careful and select high quality bamboo for your floor.
Most hardwood floors may not be ideal for kitchens and bathrooms. Bamboo is the exception to that general rule. While bamboo isn’t a fan of extremes and can shrink in extreme dry environments or swell in extreme wet environments, it handles the humidity of the average kitchen and bathroom like a pro.
Bamboo is a beautiful flooring choice. It can be finished in a wide range of shades to make it compatible with almost any taste or décor. It adds a clean sort of elegance to almost any room in the home and is a good match for most rooms as well.
When you purchase high-quality bamboo flooring, you are buying floors that are built to last. Most homeowners find that these floors last as long as the average hardwood floor with lowers costs, a better environmental impact, and superior beauty.

Unlike hardwood floors that require extensive and sometimes expensive efforts to clean, maintain, and restore, bamboo floors are good to go with a mop and mild soap. No waxing or refinishing required – unless you want to make changes in the finish – but not in order to maintain the finish.
If you’re looking for beautiful floors that are good for the planet, easy to take care of, and designed to last a long time, bamboo is a good choice for all these reasons and more. You’re sure to find a few reasons of your own to fall in love with floors made of bamboo.
