Are you looking for a distinctive, trendy flooring option? Hardwood flooring has a lot of different options and styles available, but for a truly unique look, consider installing bamboo flooring. There are five clear advantages that bamboo has over wood that we will discuss today. What sorts of advantages do they have?
Hardwood is pretty durable in its own right, but bamboo flooring really shines and can withstand a lot of abuse. Bamboo flooring can last up to twenty-five years and is more resistant to damage and scratches than hardwood flooring. In addition, scratches, stains, and spills on bamboo flooring don’t show as badly as they do on hardwood.
Some hardwood flooring varieties aren’t suited for all uses. For example, natural hardwood has a tendency to warp and expand/contract along with temperature and humidity variance, making them difficult for some applications. Bamboo agrees with any climate and so can be used consistently in just about any application, even for bathroom flooring! While materials such as stone and tile require laminates and overlapping material, bamboo doesn’t need them to achieve a consistent look throughout the house.
3. Environmentally Friendly
Bamboo is incredibly eco-friendly because it is able to be replenished a lot more quickly than wood. It also reduces deforestation and greenhouse gases and helps keep the air we breathe clean!
4. Easy to Maintain
While natural wood floors will need periodic oiling and cleaning to keep them looking at their best, bamboo flooring will only require simple sweeping and vacuuming. And if you need to use a wet mop and cleaner, you won’t have to worry about ruining the floor.
5. Looks Great
Bamboo flooring is a classy addition to the look of your home. It blends in well with its surroundings and is available in multiple colors to suit any need. And it can be finished with a gloss or satin finish for an extra layer of beauty that is hard to beat!
