Bamboo flooring is a relatively new option in hardwood flooring that has become popular thanks to its sustainability. Unlike most hardwood species, bamboo is a fast growing plant with complex root systems that rejuvenate quickly, making it a favorite among conservationists as an eco-friendly floor.
Natural bamboo flooring ranks high on the Janka Hardness test scale, just above white oak and ash. Its durability makes it a great choice for areas that receive a lot of foot traffic.
Most bamboo flooring has a honey-colored finish with a slightly mottled looking appearance, although it can be stained to almost any hue. It comes in two types: horizontal, or flat-pressed, and vertical, or side-pressed. Horizontal bamboo flooring has wide lines that run through it, while vertical has a more consistent appearance.
With so many options in bamboo flooring, it can be dizzying to choose the perfect one for your unique setting. Let the experts at Floor Coverings International, Cincinnati East, help. Call or click to schedule a free in-home consultation today.
