Benefits of Bamboo Flooring

Appearance

Bamboo flooring is a beautiful option for your home. Its classic golden-brown color creates a welcoming, airy, and natural vibe for your home. The light shade of bamboo can brighten any room, giving the illusion of extra space. Bamboo can also be stained, which gives you flexibility in the look you want to create. This natural, stunning flooring has the same classic appeal as hardwood. The grain of bamboo tends to be simple and understated, making it ideal for a minimalist aesthetic.

Durability

Bamboo is more durable than many hardwood flooring options. On the Janka Hardness Scale, solid bamboo has a rating of 1725, placing it above red oak, white oak, ash, and maple hardwood. Strand-woven bamboo, which involves pulling apart bamboo strands and fusing them together under pressure and heat, has a Janka Rating of over 3000. This places it above nearly all hardwood species.

Eco-Friendly

Bamboo is an eco-friendly option for your home. Bamboo forests are fast-growing, meaning they’re naturally self-sustaining. This beautiful flooring allows you to achieve an exotic, stunning look without hurting the environment.

Low Maintenance

The durability of bamboo makes it a hardy, low-maintenance flooring. Bamboo planks are ideal for high-traffic areas, and can withstand daily wear-and-tear. The light shade of bamboo also means that dust and crumbs don’t stand out. Simple sweeping is enough to keep your bamboo floors clean.
