Here on AT, we've asked Is Bamboo Really as Eco as We Think? and looked at IKEA Bamboo Flooring, but there are still lots of questions and confusion due to the many various qualities and prices in the material. This week, The New York Times answers the question: Is bamboo flooring a good idea or just a fad?...

A lot depends on the quality of the flooring — is it solid bamboo? engineered bamboo? a bamboo veneer? And as with most things, higher quality means a higher price. For some answers and another solid starting point (including a price range) see Room to Improve: Is bamboo flooring a good idea or just a fad?
