We will do our absolute best to provide you with a beautiful and high quality floor that meets your budget.

We insist on quality

We would never sell you something we wouldn't use in our own homes - and many of our employees live on Ambient® bamboo floors in their homes! All of our flooring (including strand woven bamboo) is made from A-grade Moso bamboo that's five to seven years old. Our factory makes our flooring to our specifications, using the most advanced milling machinery available. We carry out continuous testing - in the U.S. - of our floors and service to ensure the highest standards.

We specialize in bamboo flooring

As more suppliers and big-box retailers add bamboo as a side product rather than a core competency, it has become more difficult to find high-quality bamboo floors, and consumers are often misled by questionable quality and testing claims. If you are wondering where to buy bamboo flooring without sacrificing quality, then you've come to the right place. We lab-test our products here in the U.S. and are happy to share our testing results with you. We have become one of (if not) the best bamboo flooring suppliers in the nation by providing excellent products and exceptional service; we have shipped our floors around the globe and have earned the trust of a multitude of homeowners, architects, designers and contractors.

The smart alternative to hardwood flooring

Hardwood floor suppliers can't match bamboo flooring when it comes to a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly product. Hardwoods such as oak take decades to mature into trees suitable for harvest. Once cut, they don't regenerate, and they must be replanted. Bamboo and eucalyptus, on the other hand, are extremely durable materials that fully mature without heavy doses of pesticides or fertilizers, in just 3-7 years. Once we harvest our bamboo, the same plant regenerates, eliminating the need for replanting. At Ambient we use only grade-A Moso bamboo, and the most advanced quality control processes in the industry. This means you can rest easy knowing your floor is made from only choice raw materials and will last a lifetime.
