In home decoration, the more commonly used floor materials are ceramic tile and composite wood floor. If the budget is sufficient, you can also choose 10-meter floor. Nowadays, in addition to these traditional floor materials, new floor materials such as bamboo floor and PVC have entered the public eye. In particular, bamboo flooring has attracted the attention of consumers because of its fresh and elegant color, the characteristics of warm in winter and cool in summer, and natural and environmentally friendly materials. So is bamboo floor better or wood floor better?
Bamboo floor has high density, good toughness, high strength, strong and durable, not easy to deform, and has smooth texture, soft color, elegant and generous, and is an environmentally friendly green product. Bamboo has beautiful texture, anti-mildew, anti-moth, flame retardant, anti-static, no side effects, and can absorb ultraviolet rays, which is beneficial to human vision. Warm in winter and cool in summer, it can automatically adjust and maintain the temperature. Living for a long time can reduce the occurrence of rheumatoid arthritis, rheumatism and heart disease. The surface treatment of bamboo floors is mostly varnish, glossy paint, matte paint, etc., which can keep the bamboo grain of the bamboo floor as much as possible.
1. Durability: The shrinkage and expansion of bamboo flooring is smaller than that of solid wood flooring, and bamboo flooring is more prone to deformation and beetles, especially in southern regions, so bamboo flooring has a shorter service life. However, with the improvement of craftsmanship, the abrasion resistance, compression resistance and distortion resistance of bamboo floors are gradually improved, and they are gradually catching up with other materials.
2. Environmental protection: affordable bamboo flooring use adhesives. If you buy inferior products, the adhesive content is high, which will produce harmful gases, while the whole selection of solid wood floors does not have this problem.
3. Aesthetics: The color of the bamboo floor is monotonous, and the style of the decoration is relatively simple, so it needs to be dyed, and the texture of the solid wood floor is diversified.
4. Price: Bamboo floors are cheaper, generally only about half the price of ordinary solid wood floors. Not only that, bamboo floors also have health benefits, which can reduce the occurrence of rheumatoid arthritis.
All in all, whether bamboo flooring is better or wood flooring is better can not be summed up in one word, each has its own advantages and disadvantages in different aspects. The above mainly compares bamboo floors and solid wood floors. If the budget is sufficient, both solid wood floors and bamboo floors are of course possible, but compared with composite wood floors, bamboo floors are more cost-effective.
