If you are looking for a way to make your home look a bit warmer or more inviting, maybe you should give some bamboo wood floors a try.
Bamboo, found on the North American continent, is a highly processed wood. The bamboo goes through a process where it is split into layers then flattened, dried and glued in layers together.
There are two ways to lay bamboo flooring. There’s vertical and horizontal. Lying the bamboo vertically will cause the pattern to be uniformed and will give your floor a more sleek and organized look. If you are looking for a more unique floor pattern, the wood can be laid in a more erratic way to create some quirk.
Here are steps to take care of your floor
- Avoiding walking on new floors with heels
- Use protective pads on legs of chairs and tables
- Change location of furniture, bamboo will fade with time
- Keep out of direct sunlight
- Floors will stain if spills aren’t cleaned right away

It is made from 100 percent recycled wood, so you don’t have to feel like you’re killing the whole rainforest just to have a beautiful dining room. These floors are relatively easy to maintain. Sweep them daily, and once a week or so, make sure to take a little Mop and Glo and go over the clean floor with a dry mop to keep the wood shiny.
These durable, beautiful floors are a relatively inexpensive way to add a modern touch to any home.
