Bamboo Flooring Advantages

Bamboo flooring is a great and unique choice. Bamboo floors are very pretty to look at, and they are durable, too.

Below are the top five reasons why you should choose bamboo flooring:

Aesthetic Appeal

Many people aren’t aware that bamboo is actually a grass. Because of this difference, bamboo has a different look than your typical hardwood floors. The bamboo flooring color will be determined during the manufacturing process, but it’ll be easy to match upon installation since the color can be quite uniform. Nowadays, staining for bamboo flooring is available, making over thirty different styles and colors available for you. With this many choices, you’re sure to find something to perfectly fit your style.


Bamboo is not only beautiful, it is also quite durable. Bamboo flooring is even harder than many hardwood floors. In addition to its hardness rating, bamboo is also resilient. This means it “bounces back” after most impacts and doesn’t dent. This is also good for your feet and back since the floor will be easy to walk on, since it will “give” a little.

Moisture Resistance

Bamboo is water resistant in nature. Bamboo is also laminated during its manufacturing process, so it’s also resistant to warping. Because of this moisture resistance, bamboo flooring can be used in bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms where hardwood and laminate floors shouldn’t be used.

Pro Environment

Bamboo is a replaceable material. This means it can easily and quickly be re-grown in a reasonably short time. Bamboo is typically harvested every four to five years without actually destroying the plant. Refinishing isn’t needed as often with bamboo because of its resiliency. This cuts down on the chemicals necessary to maintain the floor.


Obviously, you’ll have an easier time cleaning bamboo floors than you would carpets. You just need a mop. Grouts aren’t a problem either, unlike with tiles.

Bamboo is a great addition to any home. You won’t have any problem when it comes to cleaning and matching styles, plus it’s eco-friendly.
