For extra strength, be sure to take a look at bamboo flooring. Bamboo is harder than hardwood, and it offers greater dimensional stability. Consequently, although bamboo is not the best option for areas with moisture, it does handle moisture better than hardwood. At the same time, bamboo is better-suited for heavy foot traffic.
What really sets bamboo flooring apart from hardwood, however, is its appearance. Bamboo features a unique pattern of light and dark nodules, and it’s also available in light and dark shades. These looks are certainly more pronounced compared to the looks as hardwood. Additionally, bamboo can be layered horizontally or vertically in rooms.
Cork flooring has been around for a century, but it only recently has become popular in the residential market. Cork has a special cell structure, so it’s more flexible than hardwood and bamboo. This extra flexibility means that cork flooring is rather comfortable underfoot. Also, cork remains warm to the touch, so its comfort is unquestioned.
Moreover, because cork is flexible, it is nearly as durable as a resilient floor. Most indents, for example, with either fully or partially recover, so foot traffic won’t be much of an issue.
