Wood Flooring-A DIY Guide to Choosing and Installing Flooring
Bamboo flooring is beautiful and renewable, taking only four years to grow and mature. This makes it a great choice for homeowners who care about the environment. Bamboo isn’t as durable as other hard woods, and will bleach over time in the sun.
Laminate can be made to look just like real hardwood floors, but is generally much cheaper. Four layers of material are pressed together to make a durable flooring option that will hold up to a lot of abuse.
Other Flooring Options
Rustic grade wood can be sanded and stained to fit your needs. Vinyl is another manufactured plank style material that resembles real hardwood. These planks can be fit together with no need for glue or nails in the subfloor.
