Bamboo flooring is one of the newcomers in the flooring industry. Bamboo is more environmentally friendly than hardwood floors, and it is actually not wood. Bamboo floors are growing in popularity because they are inexpensive and can easily pass as wooden floors. Laminate floors are made of several different types of materials and also look great. Bamboo is really a kind of grass which is grown sustainably all over China and Southeast Asia. It's a high-quality alternative to costly traditional hardwood flooring. Installing laminate floors is something that many DIY's can do by themselves or with the help of a few friends. Laminate floors have become a popular home upgrade since they are easy to put in and don't take nearly as long as when installing hardwood floors or real tile or stone. Installation again is by floating the floor – gluing the planks together and ensuring a firm join by using a floor clamp.
Another of the great qualities of laminate flooring is that it can block the ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun and prevent them from fading the color of the floor. Hardwood floors can't boast this quality which is another reason why they need a lot more maintenance than laminates do. You won't need to refinish a laminate floor due to fading, even if you could, but you will have to take that into consideration with a hardwood floor. You'll enjoy the ease with which you can maintain your laminate floors. Designed so that they don't trap any dirt, day-to-day care will only involve running over the floors with a brush or dust mop. Spills can easily be wiped up with a sponge or paper towel and will cause no damage to the floor. A lot more care is required to keep hardwood floors looking their best.
