Bamboo flooring is growing in popularity due to its unique look, durability, and eco-friendliness. At Floor Coverings International West Houston, we are your local West Houston bamboo flooring experts! Bamboo is popular because it provides the natural feeling of hardwood while also benefiting the environment. Bamboo regrows at a much quicker rate than other hardwoods, thus serving as an eco-friendly material. Bamboo is naturally a lighter wood which makes for a unique look and feel.
There are many finishes for your bamboo floor that can create a new look by increasing the gloss or staining the color of the wood. Additionally, the finish will provide protection against scuffs, scratches, and spills. You can also stain the bamboo with darker stains for a more dramatic look. Like other hardwoods, bamboo should not be installed in areas where there are high levels of moisture such as bathrooms or basements.
