We have reached the point in our conservation efforts where we wish to define those products and materials that meet sustainable trends efficiently and effectively. These elevated environmental expectations have led us to realize the beauty of bamboo, one of the fastest growing and most attractive building materials available today. It is widely used for making furniture, kitchen and bathroom cabinets, flooring, and even countertops and custom pieces too. To clean bamboo surfaces, you just need to wipe it with a dampened washrag and you are done. No special waxing agents or harsh chemicals required for cleaning, surfacing, or maintaining the surface.
Bamboo furniture is very popular today, favored by top designers and home décor specialists around the world. These pieces are very stylish and beautiful, and a great choice to coordinate with almost any décor style, theme, or color palette. Bamboo grows very fast, is easy to harvest, and can be manipulated for furniture in many different unique ways. Since bamboo is the material of choice for a great number of eco-specialists, it is very easy to find at a variety of furniture retailers. Bamboo is a common choice for boat builders today and in bygone years, so it is not hard to imagine that it is strong enough for use as furniture through the home.
Kitchen and Bathroom Cabinets
Bamboo wood is also a popular material choice for cabinetry in homes and apartments, although it can be a bit more expensive than some more traditional choices like hardwood or manmade materials. However, it often lies longer than the conventional choices, is less likely to stain with repeated spills, is more durable against scrapes, scratches, and dents, and can be customized to coordinate with the room's décor. One of the largest benefits of adding bamboo in the bathroom and kitchen is that it reacts very well to moisture, not shrinking or expanding with exposure to occasional moisture.
Floors Throughout the Home
You can choose bamboo flooring through your home to add beauty without doing damage to the environment or any precious ecosystems. There are several shades to choose from, with all of the same benefits of bamboo cabinetry and furniture, including superior durability and longevity. Bamboo is an excellent choice for families with pets or small children, because it can really take a beating without being seriously damaged. Termites do not affect it either, unlike other forms of wood flooring, so it is a great choice when you want the beauty of hardwood without the potential for disaster.
Countertops and Custom Pieces
Bamboo is also the building material of choice for a variety of custom countertops and outdoor living spaces as well. It is easy to move and install because it weighs very little, and the durability can not be overemphasized. It has been used for building bridges and scaffolds for many years, so using it as an outdoor building product or for outdoor furnishings means that you can be confident that bamboo will be strong, reliable, beautiful, cost-efficient, and long-lasting.
