Why Bamboo Flooring Is Still Popular

Cortney Lindquist

In recent years, bamboo flooring has become more and more popular. It’s very trendy since it’s attractive, easy to maintain, versatile, affordable, and environmentally friendly. Since the demand has increased, the range of bamboo flooring has started to reflect this. 

Bamboo flooring has an exotic, stylish look but is still relatively affordable. However, understanding the benefits and disadvantages of any type of flooring before installing is crucial to ensure that the particular flooring works for you.

It's Chic

Do you love the clean lines and elegant contemporary look of modern design? Bamboo’s unique characteristics and natural pattern striations will add interest and depth to your space. It's unique and something visitors to your home will admire.

It's Eco-Friendly

Environmentally conscious buyers are often drawn to bamboo as a completely renewable resource. Unlike trees, which take decades to mature, bamboo stalks grow quickly. Bamboo stalks that are cut will simply continue to grow and renew themselves so that they can be harvested again.

It's Durable

High-quality bamboo flooring can last about as long as traditional hardwood floors. Bamboo can be as hard, strong, and durable as red oak, for example, and some strand-woven bamboo floors can be even harder.

There's Plenty of Variety

Bamboo flooring can be found in a variety of colors and styles. You won't be limited in your interior-design choices. Whatever look you're after, you can get it with bamboo.

It's Easy to Maintain and Repair

Bamboo flooring is relatively easy to maintain. Just vacuum it and sweep regularly to remove debris. Also, you can occasionally clean it with a non-alkaline, non-wax, hardwood or bamboo floor cleanser, or you can damp mop it.
