Why Your Family Will Swoon Over a Bamboo Floor

A bamboo floor is one of the most sought after looks in a home. The color, texture, and natural beauty of bamboo is something that no other type of wood flooring can capture.

However, real bamboo floors are very expensive. With laminate bamboo flooring, you can create a jaw-dropping look in your home for a fraction of the price.

Here are a few reasons why your family will swoon over bamboo floors.

The Soft, Sweet Coloring

Bamboo has a similar appeal to hardwood flooring, but it’s a little bit lighter than the traditional dark floor color homeowners think of normally. Instead, bamboo offers a caramel color with elements of some of the favorite hardwood floor colors, such as maple.
