Bamboo Flooring Basics: What Makes It Such an Attractive Option? , Seneca, Wisconsin

Hardwood flooring is a fantastic way to improve the interior of any home, but not every material is created equal. More traditional sources like oak and maple are perfectly fine, but you might want to consider the unique advantages of bamboo for your next flooring installation project. For those who are new to this attractive and highly sustainable material, let’s take a look at why it comes so highly recommended. 

A Guide to the Beauty of Bamboo

Bamboo Flooring & the Environment

As popular as other types of wood flooring are, they're nowhere near as renewable as bamboo. Bamboo comes from natural vegetation, and a freshly harvested plant will only take anywhere from five to seven years to return to its most mature stage. Compare that to the 40 or 50 years it takes oak and other tree varieties to do the same, and you begin to see the immense difference in sustainability. 

Contemporary Look at a Reasonable Price

flooringFor the most part, the cost of bamboo flooring is on par with that of other more traditional hardwood. Materials can range from $2 to $8 per square foot, depending on the style you choose. Just be wary of bamboo pricing that seems too good to be true. You may think you're getting a bargain, but the price will be reflected in the overall quality and durability of the final product.  

Life Beyond Installation

If you do opt for higher quality, you'll end up with flooring that will weather plenty of wear and tear and last about as long as any alternative. Best of all, bamboo is more resistant to water and easy to maintain. Regular sweeping and vacuuming, with the occasional use of a mop and mild soap, will get the job done. 

Just because you want hardwood flooring doesn't mean you want your home's interior to look like all the others. Make a positive, attractive change in your home and give bamboo a shot when you're ready for an update.
