Wood floor is possibly the most popular flooring choice in homes these days. The ability to easily clean and maintain is just too tempting to resist. Except that installing wood flooring in your home can end up costing you a pretty penny by the end. And we all know that you shouldn’t default to linoleum if you don’t have to. So what is the happy middle flooring option after we consider all the factors? You’ll find the answer in bamboo flooring. It looks like wood flooring without the cost which is a win for you and your home. Take a look at these 10 reasons to love bamboo flooring and get ready to replace your current flooring with this natural beautiful option.

Modern homes benefit well from a very light flooring to keep things feeling airy against your inky furniture and accents. Go for the lightest bamboo you can find and you are sure to be pleased with the result in your modern space.

Light flooring can also be a great option for kitchens, no matter your style. Many kitchens don’t have much natural lighting so installing a light shade of bamboo flooring will help make your space feel brighter than it actually is which is never a bad thing.

Conversely, when you have lots of light furniture and light walls and natural light, you can get away with a darker floor. Don’t let it intimidate you. It will make your space seem grounded and interesting, rather than going with all light colors.

Do you lean towards the redder shades of wood in your home? Bamboo flooring can give you that too. Light or dark or somewhere in between, a red wood lookalike will satisfy all your hardwood dreams and save you money doing it.
