Modern house concept demands homeowners to stay simple and clean as possible in decorating a home. However, since the earth is not so well anymore, the homeowners have to adapt the situation and also improving the way of living in order to keep the earth from getting worse. Therefore, one of the housing elements that can be adjusted with the Go-Green theme is the floor, by choosing bamboo flooring.
Bamboo is not a wood. In fact, bamboo is a type of grass. You might immediately think that the bamboo is fragile just like the other grass. So far, according the public perception, bamboo is not suitable to be used as a modern building material. But, it turns out that bamboo has been proven as a building material that is very tough, lightweight, flexible and environmentally friendly. For example, as a flooring material. In addition to have a beautiful texture, bamboo also has the long-lasting durability.
Bamboo flooring installation requires no special technique. There are several ways that you can do, such as: you can simply integrate it after splitting it in the same size, of course, with a good laying technique, neatly lined and interlock installation, so that the final layer of the floor is fit without any parts that can be shifted.
In terms of the availability, bamboo is easier to find than wood, especially teak. Because the bamboo’s life cycle only takes about 3 years to be ready to harvest. While teak could take 30 years to be fully ready to use. This advantage proves bamboo is a very environmentally friendly building material to support the Go-Green theme in the home interior.
The beautiful ethnic impression of bamboo flooring doesn’t only show a modesty, but it is also cost-effective and still reflects the quality. It should begin to be socialized as a substitute for the parquet flooring.
