The quality of bamboo can affect the hardness of the floor—this is why we only use fully mature Grade A Moso bamboo harvested at 5-7 years of maturity, from responsibly managed or FSC-Certified forests. We wouldn’t think of offering our iron clad warranty if we didn’t use only the best materials for our products.
Check out some of our gorgeous carbonized floors such as our Carbonized Antiqued Strand Bamboo Flooring and our Carbonized Click Lock Engineered Bamboo Flooring. Our carbonized bamboos also offer an excellent foundation for a variety of custom darker colors like our world-famous Coffee Handscraped Flooring.
The carbonization and marbling effect imparted by the strand woven construction process create a naturally random and beautiful grain similar to hardwood and warm underfoot, making it the perfect option for creating a “lived in”, vintage atmosphere.
Given the impressive strength and resilience of strand woven bamboo, refinishing is rarely necessary—but in the occasion that it does, carbonized bamboo can be refinished without losing its color (unlike stained bamboo and hardwoods). This is an important distinction: whereas stained flooring can only achieve the desired look with the use of chemicals, in contrast, the color of carbonized bamboo is achieved with non-toxic, high pressure heating methods.
The benefits of choosing Ambient’s carbonized bamboo floors go beyond style and substance. It’s a non-toxic, kid, pet, and high heel friendly floor that lets you live and enjoy your life without the constant worry and hassle of complicated maintenance, and it won't look dented up and require refinishing after 10 years like hardwoods.
The deep, varied hues of carbonized bamboo offers the warmth, elegance, texture, and atmosphere that hardwood flooring provides, along with affordable costs of installation and maintenance. It is also widely regarded as THE environmentally friendly alternative to hardwoods, and an important consideration if you want formaldehyde free floors that are safe for indoor air quality.
