Whenever someone became enamored with Far Eastern aesthetics in your family, ordering sushi and making origami might not be enough. If your budget allows it, why not go for a genuine bamboo hardwood flooring? Of course, it would be necessary to continue decorating your home with themed accessories, but even alone such flooring can provide touch of Japanese or Vietnamese culture to your otherwise Westernized abode. So, lets learn what is required to set up bamboo wood flooring!
First of all, we need to decide on a material of our flooring. It can be either classical, made from actual bamboo. But that is probably highly expensive to acquire, unless you live in South Eastern Asia. To save a little, go for either wooden or plastic imitation. In many cases it will serve the purpose better, and unusual hardiness of bamboo is easily replaced. Imitations won’t help to save natural environment however, as bamboo usually regrows very quickly and thus allows to produce flooring without worrying about deforestation like in case of traditional wood.
And just in time for many Oriental aficionados, most of Western online markets supply these products in abundance. If American retail company works in renovation area, customer can always be sure that he will find something to his liking, even if he looks for natural bamboo flooring. It allows refinishing, so no need to worry about scratched or otherwise damaged surface spoiling your newly laid floor. One downside of this solution is that no retailer or manufacturer is willing to grade these products and carefully separate good bamboo from not so good one. It’s up to lady Fortune to determine whether your entire batch will be of consistent quality.
