Bamboo flooring is the new trend that is great if you want sturdy, durable and environmentally friendly floors. Lowes is one store that carries a nice selection of bamboo flooring in various shades. Bamboo is not only available in one light color - it can be found in various shades ranging from light to dark, however when people think of bamboo they often think it can only look one way. Bamboo floors are extremely hardy and can stand up to a lot of wear and tear - it's perfect for heavy traffic areas and it's also really stylish and provides a great base for other interior additions.
You can find light bamboo floors, dark bamboo floors as well as engineered bamboo flooring among all the different options. If you're thinking of updating your floors and you really would prefer hardwood, however you don't have a very big budget to work with, then going with bamboo would be a very sound choice. In fact, bamboo is cheaper than most other hardwood kinds, simply because it grows so fast, hence it's environmentally friendly. This type of flooring can give a home a rather modern and contemporary feel, and it would be great if you want to make your home brighter and lighter, since most of these shades are rather light in color. Of course you can also find stained bamboo which is considerably darker: this would be a good choice if you prefer a darker shade, however you still like the look of bamboo, and perhaps the price and the green aspect too.
Many of these bamboo floors below from Lowes are also engineered to be extra durable and strong, so if you would like something that should stand up well to many years of wear and tear, then this type of flooring would certainly be a good choice.
