Bamboo is another natural flooring option. It is harder than many hardwoods, easier on earth and flame resistant. It is actually a fast growing grass which can be harvested in 3 to 6 years. The stalks are harvested leaving the roots and fresh shoots start up again.
Bamboo comes in both prefinished solid and engineered planks in a warm spectrum of natural colors and is installed just like engineered hardwood. It can be installed over many different types of subfloors.
