Think Beech Or Bamboo For Distinctive Tampa Flooring

Stuck on what to do with your floors when you’re doing a home makeover? Why not try beech or bamboo?

For a really distinctive look in your home, give some thought to using hardwood floors in beech or bamboo. They are possibly the most irresistible flooring out there and offer homeowners a nice, light and airy look and feel that they appreciate. Certainly, there are a wide variety of options out there to upgrade flooring, but if you really have your heart set on something different, the American hardwood frenzy might just be the thing you need.

Beech offers a nice ambiance you will not always find with other types of Tampa flooring and it is certainly something worth considering. If you do not know where to start when you are on the hunt for new hardwood floors, take a good look at what beech has to offer.

It is one of the nicer options for many homeowners, because it has a wide range of eye appealing colors from pinkish brown to pale cream. When it goes down on the floor it brightens up any room thanks to its sheen. Is it hard to install? It may be if you do not have experience handling beech, but if you get in touch with a skilled Tampa flooring contractor, there will not be any problems laying it.

This particular type of flooring is a real winner when it comes to wear and tear, meaning beech wears well and it stays smooth and satiny to the touch. It is actually a great choice for a high traffic area. In fact, did you know that beech is what is used for basketball court floors? Not that we are promoting a basketball court in your kid’s room, but that it will take a good beating and still look good years later.

If you want to go in a different direction and try something that adds a touch of variety and style to your floors, then another alternative for you may well be bamboo. It is interesting and very appealing, but it does have some cons that you need to be aware of before you buy it. For instance, it is not suited for high traffic areas. Also, many of the reviews you will read online will tell you it is flooring that you should take your shoes off to walk on.

The other thing, for those that are environmentally aware, is that bamboo is a treated, imported flooring product. In fact, it has been treated with formaldehyde. If you have concerns about being exposed to formaldehyde over long periods of time, this may not be the flooring for you. And so, the ultimate choice of Tampa flooring is yours.
