Advantages & Disadvantages
The main advantage of bamboo flooring is that it is highly sturdy while still being earth-friendly. Bamboo is described as sustainable because it is a much higher regrowth rate than traditional timber, which means that harvesting it for flooring has a lower impact on the environment. Bamboo flooring is also great for creating a modern look in any room. Additionally, it is quite easy to clean.
On the other hand, bamboo can be susceptible to scratches. If you are planning on having bamboo installed in a high-traffic area of the home, make sure it is sealed properly. This will prevent you from constant worry about scrapes and scuffing.
Bamboo flooring is known for coming in a wide range of colors. You can find bamboo in shades from the lightest yellow tones to shades so dark they are practically black. Because we are partnered with premier flooring manufacturers, we have access to the top brands and best quality bamboo flooring.
