An alternative to solid or engineered floors, bamboo offers a sleek look that is eco-friendly and durable. There are three basic types of bamboo, which are engineered, solid, and strand-woven. Engineered bamboo, also known as horizontal cut, is similar to engineered hardwood floors, in which it consists of solid layers.
Solid bamboo is made up pieces of bamboo that have been glued together, and strand-woven bamboo is consisted of shredded and compressed bamboo. All three are durable and come in various finishes.
