Choosing Bamboo Flooring for Your Home
If you’ve decided to install bamboo floors in your home, you’ve made an excellent choice. Your floor will look unique and beautiful and bamboo is a sustainable product, meaning your choice is good for the environment. Of course, you’re not done yet. There is still a lot to consider before the installation can start.
First, you’ll want to decide on the kind of bamboo flooring you want. There are a handful of different types, meaning it might help to do a bamboo flooring comparison in order to get the color and texture you’ll be happy with.
One especially interesting kind of bamboo flooring is known as strand woven bamboo. When bamboo is processed into floorboards, as much as 60% of it will not be used. This is a lot of quality bamboo to waste. But by grinding it into sawdust and applying extreme heat and pressure to it, you get quality bamboo flooring that looks great and is actually just as, if not more, strong as the original thing.
You can also get a “tiger stripe” version that mixes the woven kind with the traditional version. The tactic makes for large stripes that look like a tiger’s.
So long as you’ve chosen a reputable supplier and installer, you’ll have an easy time making the most out of your decision to install bamboo floors.
