Wooden flooring adds profound impact to a room, making it feel both comfortable and luxurious. Traditional hardwoods such as pine, oak, or maple are all dependable choices, but there’s a less well-known option which is fast becoming a favorite. Here are four reasons to consider installing bamboo flooring as part of your home remodeling project.
Bamboo is exceptionally fast growing and can produce floor-ready wood in as little as four years from planting. Compare this to 20 years or more for traditional hardwood choices.
What’s more, after the hardwood portion gets harvested, the plant’s root system stays intact and sprouts new growth without the need for replanting. If you’re concerned about the environment, bamboo is the perfect eco-friendly choice.
Bamboo is extremely tough and durable, making it an ideal flooring material for a busy home. By standard scientific measurements, bamboo is harder than oak, and pound for pound, it is stronger than steel. Its sectional anatomy also provides it with more structural integrity, and its high silica content makes it resistant to termites.
3. Versatile Looks
Bamboo isn’t limited to one look. You can get bamboo flooring in a wide range of colors, as well as distressed and rustic textures. Bamboo is easy to blend into any home decor scheme.
4. Easy to Clean
In contrast to most other hardwoods, bamboo is easy to keep clean and care for. You’ll need no special detergents or polishes. Giving your floor a brush or gentle vacuum as needed and a weekly mop with warm water and mild detergent will keep it looking great for years.
Bamboo flooring has a modern appeal, which makes it well suited to luxury condos, loft conversions, and other new homes. Contact us at Complete Construction DFW and let’s start a conversation about using this wonder of nature in your next remodeling project.
