There are so many options out there when it comes to choosing the right flooring for your home. This is an important investment,  it pays to do your homework!

It is easy to see why Bamboo has grown in popularity. Bamboo is beautiful and durable, it is also grown and harvested in an environmentally friendly manner ,which we love !

1. It Is Durable! 

Bamboo withstands compression better than concrete and has a tensile strength greater than steel!  It is also more resistant to moisture than Hardwood. A great option for high traffic areas.

2. It Is Eco-Friendly!

Although stronger than many trees, bamboo is actually a grass. It is a rapidly renewable resource and the fastest growing plant in the world!  Bamboo’s rapid growth allows frequent harvesting without causing damage to the ecosystem of bamboo forests. On average, bamboo can grow up to about 24 inches in a single day!

Neat Fact! Bamboo can be harvested without the need to replant, this is because the root system remains intact when the rest of the plant is harvested!

3. It Is Easy To Install!

While there are a handful of ways to install bamboo flooring, one popular option is the great “floating floor,” no adhesive needed. This is a great option for the average do-it-yourself-er.  As always, it is best to speak to a professional to find out which installation method is best for you.

4.It Is Easy To Maintain!

Bamboo has a better resiliency than softer floors like pine. A bamboo floor, despite its rapid growth, proves to be extremely strong  while withstanding the elements in high traffic areas.

Here are a few tips!

  •  Vacuum or sweep floor regularly. Remove spills promptly.
  • Do not wet mop, a slightly damp mop is acceptable. (Your flooring dealer can recommend the best cleaning solution for your bamboo).
  • Use curtains or blinds to limit direct sunlight on your floor. Sunlight will cause naturally light colors to darken, and dark colors to lighten due to the UV rays.
  • It is recommended to maintain indoor humidity levels between 35% and 55% year-round, regardless of outside conditions.    

5. It looks Amazing!

Bamboo floors add a warm and welcoming feeling to just about any space. Lots of colour options are available, so you can find the best fit for your home. Bamboo has a classic look, it is not a trend, making it a timeless addition to your home. You can feel confident that your bamboo flooring will look great for many years to come!

Some people feel that having your own designer may be expensive. It isn’t.    It only takes one bad choice (like the carpet I picked out),  or a bad paint color to understand the value of having a professional help you.  Lisa was great to work with and had wonderful ideas and sourced a lot of great pieces that we love to show off!  She has worked with us on  simple plans, and others that were a bit more complex.  I can tell you one thing after my experience with her,  I will never go it alone again.

Charlene and I would like to thank Carla and Nickey for everything you have done for us and for transforming our home. The results are beyond anything we had expected. I appreciate how we were treated even though I was always concerned with the budget and various other aspects of the project. I never felt judged because of this and our concerns were always addressed.
You guys are a class act and we are looking forward to someday completing the basement.

Working with Lisa at Amazing Space has been such a great experience. When we started with her, our goal was to make our home cozier and give it the finishing touches it desperately needed. I always liked our home but now I can honestly say I love it. Thanks to Lisa and Amazing Space for making this experience so much fun and turning our home into an awesome space.

My husband and I recently built a large luxury home and were faced during the construction process with the endless choices of colour, style, design, etc. This is a daunting task for anyone but for a 13,000 + square foot home the choices seemed endless. Luckily for us, Carla and Lynzie of Amazing Space Interiors helped us navigate through these choices with ease. They worked daily with us both on and off business hours, over the whole construction process to help us create the perfect look for our home from the ground up literally. Every room needed to be ‘created’ and co-ordinated as our home is based on an open concept which means everything must match that much more.  It was our pleasure working with them and we look forward to doing it again sometime soon. They are a fun team and a dynamic duo who enjoy helping the customer realize their vision for their home and ensure the end result is what the customer had in mind. With Carla and Lynzie on your team, you can’t go wrong!
