Bamboo is one of the most popular flooring options right now, and it’s not hard to see why. Bamboo has the distinction of being incredibly eco-friendly; it’s ready to use in just five years and the same bamboo stalk can be harvested again and again. It’s truly a renewable, fast-growing resource. But besides its ecological benefit, bamboo is also a sensible material for many homes.
Strand woven bamboo flooring is even more durable than many traditional hardwoods. Some types of bamboo are even more resilient than maple or red oak, meaning it’s a long-lasting choice. It also does well in high-moisture environments, like its nativeSoutheast Asia, making it a great choice for more humid spaces. Bamboo is also easy to care for—no waxing or special treatments here, just sweep it and clean it regularly and bamboo will retain it’s rich look for years.
Fortunately, bamboo doesn’t just come in that light blond color you may associate with the flooring. Bamboo flooring comes in a variety of colors and styles, from traditional light stains to darker, richer colors like walnut, mahogany and espresso. To the untrained eye, some bamboo styles are almost indistinguishable from traditional hardwoods, offering the same traditional look and feel.
