One of bamboo flooring’s weak points is a general lack of variety. To address this issue, flooring companies came up with a process to darken the bamboo and give consumer’s a choice when it came to the color of their bamboo floor.
A lot of people like the darker amber color of carbonized bamboo flooring, but one thing the manufacturer may not tell you is that the process makes the bamboo softer and weaker. This means that it will become even more susceptible to damage such as dents. Is that really something you want in a floor as scratch and dent prone as bamboo?
