Small Bamboo Bathroom Flooring Idea
While bamboo floors usually come in a light, natural blond finish, they’re also available in darker hues, which is achieved by staining the surface or through a process called carbonisation. This involves pressure-steaming strips of raw bamboo, which causes the material (not just the surface) to take on a deeper, richer colour, like creamy caramel or coffee. Bamboo can also be hand scraped to make the surface look like more like wood. Bamboo flooring is available in two forms: solid (horizontal grain, vertical grain or strand woven) and engineered. Horizontal-grain planks are made from layers of flat thin strips of bamboo that are glued and pressed together; creating a surface that resembles bamboo in its natural state thanks to its distinctive, repetitive knuckle pattern.
