Can you install bamboo flooring in your kitchen?
That’s a question that we get a lot at Ambient, so we wanted to reassure you that YES, bamboo is the perfect flooring for use in your kitchen. Below is some helpful information about bamboo flooring and using bamboo for kitchen floors.
What are bamboo flooring's characteristics?
Since it's dense, moisture resistant, and handles high traffic much better than hardwoods, using bamboo in your kitchen is a great choice. It is extremely durable, eco-friendly, versatile and easy to maintain. Plus, it looks beautiful.
What is the best floor for a kitchen?
There are countless options when it comes to kitchen flooring. You’ll want to choose a practical, sturdy surface that enhances your style and decor. Some of the best materials for kitchen flooring include bamboo, stone, tile, cork and vinyl.
What happens if bamboo flooring gets wet?
Prefinished bamboo flooring is pre-sealed to protect against liquids and moisture, and most strand woven bamboo floors provide up to 30 hours of spill protection from puddles. If it gets wet, simply wipe up the spill — it’s as easy as that! This is one of the many reasons that bamboo flooring in the kitchen and bathroom is a popular choice among homeowners.
What is the easiest kitchen floor to keep clean?
Bamboo and vinyl are two of the easiest materials to keep clean, as they both provide smooth, slick surfaces that resist dirt buildup when properly maintained, and they don't trap dust or other allergen inducing particles. Routine care will keep your floors looking newer, longer.
