With the advancement of flooring technology, there are more options of flooring materials. Many synthetic floorings offer practicality and good prices with quite good quality and appearance. However, natural materials still own the classiest place among the other materials. Floorings made of natural materials, such as natural stone and wood, set up a higher level for flooring options.
However, since the material made of natural sources, the supplies is getting lessen, especially wood. With the rapid growth of flooring industry and the increasing demand of wood flooring, it indirectly takes the wood supply form our forest that also means threatening the environment. However, lately many companies have developed a more environmental friendly wood flooring that is made of bamboo. Bamboo wood flooring is the solution to replace the other wood flooring that can save our environment since bamboo is easily growth and the supplies are still quite many. Fresh wood floor option in the kitchen is a example of this ideas.
With the amount of bamboo supplies that is quite large and the short life cycle (3 years), bamboo wood flooring is not as expensive as the other wood flooring. Despite of the lower cost, it does not mean that the quality is questionable. Bamboo, which looks like a weak type of plant, is in fact very strong and sturdy. It can hold heavy loads.
Bamboo wood flooring is not less elegant as the other more expensive wood flooring. It has an exotic touch and beautiful grain and texture which is different from common wood flooring. There are several types of bamboo wood flooring we can choose for our house flooring. If we place quality as our highest priority, we may choose solid bamboo flooring. This type is the most long lasting, but the most expensive as well. For a lower budget, we can choose engineered bamboo wood flooring which is more affordable. There is not much difference in the outlook of these two different types because they are about the same at the surface.
Same as the other wood flooring, bamboo wood flooring can be produced in natural finishing or darker finishing. Bamboo wood flooring is also not difficult to maintain. The treatment is the same as the common wood flooring with the same cleaning material as well.
