Change your carpet for bamboo flooring

If you are looking to change your carpet for bamboo flooring, then you will not be disappointed. Bamboo is a great natural floor covering that will last a lifetime if you care for it correctly. Clearly, a carpet is completely different from bamboo flooring but there are some fantastic reasons to make the change.

 

Why should I change carpet for bamboo flooring?

Changing a carpet for a bamboo floor is entirely your personal choice, but here are a few reasons that may help you to decide:

  • Bamboo flooring is very durable and hard-wearing, much more so than a carpet. Carpets can easily get worn down and start to look tired.  Bamboo can last a lifetime if cared for properly.
  • Carpets harbor dust, dirt particles and pet hairs, compared to bamboo which is far more hygienic. Even a heavy-duty vacuum cleaner will struggle to properly clean a carpet. All that you need to do with bamboo flooring is sweep away any visible dirt or dust, then clean with a wood flooring cleaning solution.
  • Bamboo can be used in most rooms in your home. The only rooms or areas to avoid would be bathrooms as it is not waterproof, but then neither is carpet.
  • With bamboo flooring you are getting a natural product using sustainable resources. Carpets are usually made from synthetic materials.

Reasons not to change

If you want a soft, comfortable floor then you may want to stick to a carpet.  Although bamboo flooring has many amazing benefits, it does not offer the luxurious, cushioned feel of a carpet.  You could, of course, use a rug on top of your bamboo to create an area of your room that is more comfortable to sit on.

Another reason is if you want a bright coloured, unusual colour of floor a carpet will offer you much more choice.  Bamboo floor colours are limited, but their natural and elegant tones are likely to most decors.
