Bamboo Kitchen Flooring
Bamboo kitchen flooring is rare to find in homes because it is new to the flooring market. This particular type of kitchen floor covering is one of the more unique that has dozens of features that could easily compete with tile, vinyl, and wood kitchen flooring. More and more people are discovering these many features and considering the uses that it could have in their own home.
Bamboo is predominantly grown in the forests of Asia and Central America. It is a type of grass that has woody stems. Bamboo is known for being one of the strongest plants. After it has been growing for five to seven years it is considered strong enough to be used as flooring and is cut down and manufactured.
In terms of style bamboo kitchen flooring is one of the most unusual – but it is perfect for people who want to a hard surface kitchen floor. It is marketed for its strength as well as numerous other features.
Bamboo kitchen flooring is one of the hardest and most durable floor covering that you could use in your kitchen. The way that it grows makes it incredibly strong and very hard to put a dent in. Hardness tests have been conducted on it several times and the results show that it is harder than even the toughest wood kitchen floors.
This type of floor is available in two shades and two styles. The horizontal style is a flat grain that is cut into broad pieces that have been glued together and on top of each other to make it thick. The vertical style is more narrow that is also glued together – but it is not as thick or wide. Bamboo floors are available in a soft golden blonde or a rich amber color.
