California man wins contest for use of bamboo flooring A Truckee, California, resident recently finished third in a contest aimed at finding the best sustainable design project. Larry Rose gained the honor by cleverly using bamboo to design his kitchen, the Sierra Sun reports.
"More than 3,000 customers and website visitors voted in our June contest and we applaud Larry for implementing stylish architectural and interior designs in his kitchen without impacting the environment," Tanner Haigwood, vice president of Cali Bamboo, the company who sponsored the contest, told the news source.
Rose was able to incorporate bamboo to create everything from bamboo cabinets to bamboo flooring. Aside the from the kitchen, the news source added that he used the material in his bathroom, media room and office.
Whether entered in a contest or not, bamboo flooring can provide homeowners with a sustainable and stylish design option. Bamboo is especially eco-friendly because it is derived from a rapidly renewable source. Experts at TLC.com add that bamboo flooring can be dyed into a number of different colors so it can match with a wide variety of room styles.
