Bamboo flooring is a beautiful, unique, and eco-friendly alternative to hardwood flooring. Bamboo floors are popular because they provide the natural feeling of hardwood while benefiting the environment. At Floor Coverings International Moncton, we are your local Moncton bamboo flooring experts! We love it because it regrows at a much quicker rate than other hardwoods, thus serving as an eco-friendly material. Bamboo is created by splitting apart the hollow stems and gluing them together to create solid strips of wood. This process is what gives bamboo it’s unique look. It is naturally a lighter wood, which makes for a beautiful look and feel.
There are many finishes for your bamboo floor that can create a new look by increasing the gloss or staining the color of the wood. Additionally, the finish will provide protection against scuffs, scratches, and spills. You can also stain the bamboo with darker stains for a more dramatic look. Like other hardwoods, bamboo should not be installed in areas where there are high levels of moisture such as bathrooms or basements.
Pros of Bamboo Flooring
- Bamboo is easier and cheaper to install than hardwood flooring.
- It is easy to clean and more resistant to stains than hardwood flooring.
- Like hardwood flooring, bamboo can be sanded and refinished a few times to get rid of wear and tear.
- Bamboo is a durable flooring option.
