Bamboo Flooring: 3 Species Types

As we’ve mentioned before, bamboo flooring is a fantastic option to consider for your home. It’s sustainable, durable, versatile and easy to maintain. But did you know there are actually three different types of bamboo floors? Although there are differences between these varieties, all of them come in a wide variety of colors and styles.
