Bamboo bullnose is used at landings but can also be used to build stair steps

Bamboo stair nosing, also known as bull nose or bull nosing, is used to transition from a bamboo staircase up a level in your home, or on staircase landings or floor step downs. Available in a wide variety of color and finish options, bamboo nosing provides for an elegant and seamless transition from one area of the house to another.

Material Options

Our bamboo stair nosing is available in dozens of combinations of stains and colors to match your existing flooring or a new installation of Ambient Bamboo Flooring. Choose from classic or strand-woven bamboo. Our classic bamboo nosing is an economical solution that is both durable and attractive. Available in natural (blonde) or carbonized (tan) and many other colors, you also have the option of choosing between a strand woven, horizontal or vertical grain.

Strand-woven bamboo is our premium product. Strand-weaving produces an extremely dense wood three times as hard as oak. Check out our photo gallery or contact us for free samples to help choose the color that's right for you - we'll even cover the cost of shipping of the free flooring samples!

Installation and Maintenance

Simple to install and maintain, bamboo bull nosing from Ambient Bamboo Floors is ideal for do-it-your-selfers. No special tools are required - simply glue the molding in place using a non-water-or-latex-based adhesive and weight it down to ensure a solid bond while the glue sets. You can also nail the molding into place, though because of their increased density, we recommend either pre-drilling and screwing it down, or using a nail gun capable of shooting micro-thin nails.

While your bamboo stair trim is sure to take a lot of abuse, keeping it clean is a snap! As you would with regular hardwood flooring, clean up spills quickly and never leave standing water on the floor. With just a few precautions, your bamboo stair nosing is sure to give you years of trouble-free use.
