Using rugs to change the look of your Strand Woven Bamboo

bamboo

Strand Woven Bamboo is, of course, a stunningly gorgeous choice to add to any home. With
amazing format options as well as extensive color options, you’ll be able to match any décor or
build a foundation around which you can build.

To add even more depth to these floors, as well as a style that’s all your own, you might only
need to add a few well-placed rugs. We recently came across this article that speaks more
about that.

“The best rugs for bamboo flooring are designed to not interact with the floor materials. They
should be scratch-resistant and colorfast. A rug can keep sunlight from damaging bamboo
flooring. Look for non-slip rugs, as well as UV and water-resistant. This will keep the bamboo
flooring from getting damaged over time and keep it in its best condition.”

Important facts about Strand Woven Bamboo and rug use

As mentioned in the article, the rugs you choose to use on your Strand Woven Bamboo floors
should be those that will not create the damage they were meant to protect against. Rugs that
are not water-resistant, for instance, can hold water that will eventually cause problems for the
bamboo.

At the same time, you want to be careful with natural fiber rugs as well. Some can scratch the
delicate surface of some bamboo flooring options, so it’s best to ask lots of questions before
making a purchase.

Color can also be an issue, depending on the construction of the rug you choose. While
beautiful diversity in colors is usually a great thing, the dyes used to create them can sometimes
transfer that color to your flooring.

Once you’ve found a rug that meets all your specification, make sure you care for it properly to
make sure your flooring underneath remains clean as well. Pick them up, shake them off, and
make sure you’re cleaning the flooring underneath for the best results.
