Bamboo Hardwood Flooring
Originally used in Asia, bamboo flooring is becoming increasingly popular in the United States as homeowners search for eco-friendly flooring products. The material is technically not considered a hardwood, but it can help accomplish the same sleek look—at a lower price! So if you’re looking for a sustainable flooring product that’s affordable but beautiful, contact Elegant Flooring Service to install bamboo hardwood flooring in Maryland, Washington, DC, or Virginia.
Benefits of Bamboo Flooring
There are many benefits to having bamboo flooring, including:
- Sustainability. Because bamboo flooring is plentiful, it’s an eco-friendly investment for your home. Additionally, bamboo matures at a much faster rate than other hardwoods, making it ready for production earlier so there is less waste during manufacturing.
- Affordability. The abundance of bamboo also impacts price, making it significantly less expensive than other woods, while giving you a similar look.
- Low-maintenance. Like other hardwoods, bamboo flooring is easy to maintain. All you need to do is sweep it!
- Style. This material has a distinct look that’s similar to other hardwoods, but makes a unique statement of its own.
While bamboo flooring can help you achieve a similar look as other hardwood floors at a lower price, there are some things you can only get with a pure wood species. For example, though bamboo in its natural form tends to be relatively hard, it’s softer than popular wood flooring options like oak or walnut, and can be easier to damage or scratch. Unfortunately, it also cannot be sanded or refinished too many times, which further differentiates it from other woods. Because of this, it may not be the best choice for a high-traffic area that’s prone to scratching—like a family kitchen.
Of course, there are other species of hardwood that are softer as well and can also be easily damaged. Your choice depends on your personal tastes, but our flooring experts will be happy to walk you through the selection process during your consultation.
