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?
