We often get asked the question, ‘Is bamboo flooring good for hallways?’ The answer is always yes. Bamboo flooring is a great choice for your hallway. Especially if you choose strand woven bamboo flooring. Strand woven bamboo is over twice as hard as Oak flooring. So, if you choose it for your hallway, it will be able to withstand the daily wear and tear. It looks elegant and chic, and low maintenance.
If you do choose a bamboo floor for your hallway, remember that it is not waterproof. You may want to have a door mat at the front door. This will help to catch any dirt, grit or water from outdoor footwear. We would also advise that you remove any shoes or boots before walking on your bamboo floor. If you do happen to get dirty or wet footprints on your bamboo, just clean them up straight away.
