There are various reasons why bamboo floors are highly appreciated, such as their aesthetic appeal, durability, and eco-friendliness.
The density of a flooring material is an important factor to consider. Although bamboo has a similar appearance to hardwood, it is significantly denser than most commonly used wood species in flooring. Mohawk’s caramel-colored planks imitate maple but offer superior durability due to their higher density.
Pushing the Limits
Edge-grain planks are produced by arranging bamboo strips on their sides and stacking them together. This technique adds intricate details to various surfaces, including floors and cutting boards, as seen in this kitchen!
Strand bamboo floors are created by compressing shredded bamboo fibers using high heat. Some manufacturers even use old-growth reeds to achieve higher density and durability while maintaining an attractive appearance.
Bamboo flooring can be stained in a wide range of colors to match any interior style. Excalibur Flooring’s Roasted Espresso finish adds a touch of dark elegance to your space while protecting against everyday wear and tear.
Embracing Natural Beauty:
The light, natural color of bamboo can be celebrated without the need for staining. Teragren’s flat-grain planks from the Signature Naturals line showcase the material’s inner beauty, revealing why bamboo flooring is becoming increasingly popular.
Carbonizing is a process that can darken bamboo flooring by adding carbon during pressure-steaming, resulting in a beautiful toasted honey color. However, this may compromise durability to some extent.
Bamboo floors need not be uniform in color. Mosaic bamboo floors consist of small rectangles of edge-grain bamboo bonded together in intricate patterns that highlight the natural variations in the material, creating a distinctive statement piece for your home.
Creating Unique Patterns:
Tiger bamboo planks combine both natural and carbonized bamboo strips to produce a one-of-a-kind tiger-stripe effect. Additionally, the bamboo has been boiled in a boric acid solution to remove the sugar that attracts termites, providing protection against pests.
Versatile Plank Sizes:
Despite bamboo stalks typically having a diameter of a few inches, bamboo flooring planks come in various sizes to suit any room style. For instance, Duro-Design offers planks that exceed seven inches in width, showcasing the versatility of bamboo as a flooring material.
Teragren’s strand bamboo flooring includes a fold-down locking system that enables planks to be easily installed without nails or glue, creating a floating floor. This makes it an excellent choice for a hassle-free DIY project.
While it’s convenient to hire a handyman for household repairs, it’s also beneficial to exercise self-sufficiency and save money. Take a look at these ingenious products that solve many little household problems. Don’t miss out!
