These days, it’s not uncommon to hear homeowners speaking of bamboo flooring and you might even know someone who has it installed in their own home. The fact is Strand Woven Bamboo has truly stood the test of time and continues to be one of the most stylish ways to floor your home. It not only offers a great list of benefits, but it’s available in enough colors, designs, and formats to make it a worthy addition to any room. We were just considering this blog from 2008, that asked, “Is Bamboo Flooring a Good Idea or Just a Fad”. All these years later, I think we can agree it was a good idea.
“Bamboo is popular with some designers because of its sleek appearance. It is “more subtle, less ‘knotty’ than other wood, said Roger Ferris, an architect in Westport, Conn…Bamboo is much denser than oak…so it makes for a stronger floor that doesn’t warp as much… Because bamboo plants take only about five years to mature, unlike many trees, which can take 50 years or more, bamboo is environmentally sustainable.”

The truth is that Strand Woven Bamboo is still just as stylish as it’s always been, and in some cases, even more so. With a strong variety of colorations, graining, and widths, you can create a beautifully creative contemporary or modern decor layout. At the same time, you can opt for something more natural and rustic looking to add charm to historic homes for remodeling, or even to create that look of age. And there are plenty more options for appearance and style once you get a good look at all the options that are available to you.
For those who prefer the eco-friendly route when choosing a floor covering, Strand Woven Bamboo is the perfect option. Since it’s already classified as a rapidly renewable resource, you don’t have to worry as much about the impact on the environment, and there are no urea-formaldehyde or VOCs in the materials.
