Green living has been on the rise in the past decade. Hence, it’s not surprising to see an increasing demand for eco-friendly products from organic goods to sustainable raw materials and everything that will benefit the environment and consumers – and when it comes to flooring, bamboo proves to be the ideal option.
Bamboo flooring continues to rise in popularity as an increasing number of homeowners look for a greener alternative to traditional hardwood materials. The main advantage of bamboo is its sustainability: because it’s a grass and not a hardwood, it has the ability to regenerate in as little as 5 years in comparison to hardwood trees that can require at least 20 years before they reach maturity.
Besides its eco-friendliness, this flooring option has a lot of other benefits to offer. This infographic from House of Bamboo, a provider of high-quality bamboo privacy screens and flooring in Australia lists some of them along with a few disadvantages.
