I’ve always been a dark wood floors kind of girl, so I never really fell in love with bamboo floors. Until I saw these guys:
Maybe I’ve been living under a rock, but this was the first time I’d seen dark stained bamboo! So it came home with us. :)
A zillion boxes of that gorgeous bamboo lived in our garage for what felt like forever, and on Tuesday the floor guys started prepping the slab at the flip so that the bamboo could be installed. Yippee!!
The prep work was kind of a long process – part of the floor in the great room was floated about a month ago and a few other areas got the same treatment on Tuesday so that the slab is a nice, even surface for the bamboo.
The parts of the slab that were previously tiled (before all the tile was torn out) had to be scraped to remove any remaining bits of thinset . . .
. . . and the entire slab had to be ground down a bit for a smooth surface.
The bamboo had been happily acclimating in the house for a few days, so late in the afternoon on Tuesday the flooring started going in!!
Hopefully it will all be installed by the end of the day today – I am over the moon with how it’s looking! It feels warm and cozy, and definitely makes the house feel a lot more finished. I think I’m hooked on bamboo from here on out! What about you guys?
