If you’re in the market for new floors for your home, have you thought about bamboo? Read on to learn our top three reasons you should consider this unique flooring choice!
- It’s eco-friendly.
Bamboo is an environmentally friendly, sustainable flooring material, making it an ideal choice for homeowners who want to “go green”. Bamboo plants grow much faster than traditional hardwoods and reach maturity in three to five years, making them highly renewable. They also don’t require replanting after harvesting. If you like the look of wood floors but want to make your home eco-friendly, bamboo is a great hardwood alternative.
- It’s comfortable.
While it will never be as soft as carpet, bamboo floors are generally more comfortable underfoot than tile or traditional hardwood. Bamboo has some “give” and cushion to it, which makes it comfortable to walk and stand on for long periods of time. If you get achy joints after standing in your tile kitchen while cooking dinner every night, consider installing bamboo.
- It’s versatile.
Bamboo comes in a variety of colors and grains, so you’re sure to find something that fits the aesthetic of your home. Bamboo does well in any room where you would also place hardwood, such as kitchens, dining rooms, and hallways. Whether you’re looking for a modern or traditional flooring choice, bamboo will fit the bill. Choose a medium brown for a classic look, or go with a very light stain for a more modern feel.
