A fantastic and ecological choice for exotic hardwood flooring is bamboo. Because bamboo grows abundantly, renews efficiently and is incredibly strong, it's an ideal choice for flooring. In fact, areas like South America, India and Southeast Asia use bamboo to build entire homes! When it comes to flooring, bamboo is available in both solid and engineered (layered) planks. You can leave the bamboo in its original light blond color or get a darker color by high-pressure steaming, which results in a medium brown hue. Bamboo flooring requires exactly the same care and maintenance as any hardwood floor; no extra steps or special products are necessary.
