Bamboo flooring used in San Diego restaurant renovation
Bamboo flooring used in San Diego restaurant renovation Developers in San Diego are taking a once-closed restaurant and hoping to transform it into a new nightclub, restaurant and bistro. The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the goal is to revive the nightlife in the downtrodden urban neighborhood.
According to the news source, the project, which is located in the Hillcrest section of the city, is being organized by David Laurent and Scotty Wagner. The pair is aiming to change the atmosphere of the building, which used to cater specifically to the wealthy before it closed. Part of their effort is to make the interior design more simple.
"The restaurant itself, while beautiful, was over-the-top elegant with boa-constrictor-skin walls, peacock feathers and gold leaf. We're stripping it down to the bamboo flooring and earth tones. It will be easier on the eyes, with lots of candles and plants," Laurent told the news provider.
While Laurent and Wagner are using bamboo flooring in their restaurant, homeowners can use the material in their abode as well. TLC.com reports that, along with being environmentally friendly, bamboo flooring has a distinct design advantage as well - the material can be dyed a number of colors to match with a variety of decor choices.
