Bamboo & Cork Flooring Basics
Bamboo flooring is a harder variety of wood that’s harvested from a rapidly growing plant, rather than a tree. Since bamboo stalks grow significantly faster than your average tree, this type of flooring is considered a renewable resource. Easy to install bamboo planks are sold in several different finishes.
Cork flooring is made out of the same material that most wine corks are made from: the bark of a Mediterranean tree. The harvesting process doesn’t harm these trees, and the bark will ultimately regenerate. Cork is inherently moisture absorbent and naturally resists common allergens, so it’s a great floor for a finished basement, or even a kitchen. It has been proven to absorb sound and chills, and is sold in some truly unique patterns.
