Options Available With the EcoBamboo Collection
In terms of color, many options are available with EcoBamboo. Whether a homeowner is searching for a natural looking neutral floor or a darker stained look, the EcoBamboo collection offers it all. Different colors can be arranged in creative patterns and may even be combined with other collections such as the FSC Unfinished Bamboo or the FSC Prestige Collection from Nikzad. Bamboo flooring gives an appearance very similar to that of hardwood flooring but is more environmentally friendly because of its rapid maturity rate compared with hardwoods.
Choices from the EcoBamboo collection can be framed with selections from Nikzad’s FSC Designer collection for a touch of sophistication. One may even consider combining horizontal grain flooring from EcoBamboo with vertical grain flooring from the FSC Pacifique Strand Bamboo collection for a type of basket-weave effect. With a little creativity, one can create a truly unique floor while adding value to their home.
What makes the EcoBamboo Collection so environmentally friendly?
- Bamboo will actually take over a habitat if it is not regularly harvested either by native animals in the wild or people on a farm. Harvesting the bamboo and putting it to good use is a wonderful way to sustain an environment while not allowing nature’s gifts to go to waste.
- EcoTimber, the makers of the EcoBamboo Collection, strives to keep chemical processing to a minimum. For this reason, VOC emissions are much lower than those of comparable flooring options.
- Bamboo only needs a few short years to reach maturity rather than the several decades required by hardwood trees. Upon harvest, bamboo will grow back as it is a grass and the root structure remains intact, eliminating the need for replanting.
Is Flooring from the EcoBamboo Collection Durable?
Bamboo is harder than red oak and is very flexible, which makes it an excellent flooring material. During the manufacture of bamboo flooring, the material goes through several processes that increase its durability and scratch resistant surface. With proper care a bamboo floor from EcoBamboo should last for many years.
Are There any Rooms Where EcoBamboo Should Not be Installed?
Bamboo flooring does tend to dislike high moisture areas and for that reason should probably not be installed in kitchens, bathrooms, or basements. There may, however, be options for sealing the bamboo flooring, so homeowners may wish to speak with a flooring professional before making any definite decisions. If one does decide to install EcoBamboo in a high moisture room, they must be sure to be very diligent in wiping away spills immediately after they happen. Investing in a dehumidifier may also help to prolong the life of a bamboo floor.
