Qualities of Bamboo Furniture!
Let’s all be honest with each other! If there is a way to buy great quality furniture with style and modern flair all while making a commitment to being environmentally friendly we would! Sometimes we stray from our true beliefs for convenience. But your love of modern furniture or quality furniture doesn’t have to be compromised for convenience. There are many options when shopping for Bamboo furniture versus other woods and products on the market. Modern bedroom, dining and office furniture made from solid bamboo offers you the style, strength and durability you love, without cheating on your principles. I have listed below many attributes of bamboo furniture and what to consider when you are looking to purchase!
We have all purchased furniture that after a few years of wear and tear, find that we are questioning the integrity of the chair or sofa we purchased and wonder why we spent so much money on it. Or the old piece of furniture that was given to us by our grandfather and we wonder why we can’t buy this quality with better style? Now we can, when we look at buying bamboo . Bamboo is significantly stronger than tradition oak/red oak products and it can be formed into great contemporary style while maintaining its integrity and superior strength.
Bamboo grows straight; no other trees grow as straight as bamboo. There are “knuckles,” but these variances are consistent and dense and don’t weaken the bamboo’s structure. When laminated, bamboo’s strength is enhanced, and the lamination provides another layer against the wear and tear of use.
Bamboo furniture has the ability to withstand the consistent battles of everyday use. It is far more tolerant to damage than traditional hardwoods used in furniture making. Bamboo is even used in manufacturing of cutting boards for this very reason; it can take the abuse of repeated knife use and still maintain its natural beauty and integrity of the board. Bamboo’s inherent ability to be strong and durable are important, yet it is gentler on knife blades than other woods. These qualities within the bamboo material are exactly why it makes the perfect wood for the production of fine furniture, especially if you are plan on giving a bamboo chair and couch a great deal of use.
Bamboo furniture won’t swell or shrink due to atmospheric changes. For this reason, buying patio or outdoor furniture made from bamboo withstands the change from humid to dry air and any changes in temperature. Because Bamboo is a grass, it is more resistant to water and more resilient to water and temperatures than hardwood, but it is not immune to water damage. Although bamboo floors can be installed in areas where humidity and temperature fluctuate, it is not advised that they are installed in bathrooms or areas with excessive moisture and water
Bamboo furniture has a fine grain and is available in many stains and finishes. Your style doesn’t need to be altered or compromised when wanting to add fashionable bamboo décor and bamboo furniture to your home. The qualities of the bamboo material make for a variety of unique styles, colors making it a fun product to shop and decorate your home with!
