Surveys of real estate agents and interior designers have recently been conducted to get feedback about the quality of hardwood flooring, including bamboo products. The results were very favorable.
Of the real estate agents surveyed, 99% agree that homes with hardwood floors are easier to sell, 90% agree they sell for more money, and 82% agree that they sell faster. More than half agree that wood floors including bamboo flooring will increase a home's resale value, promote a healthier indoor living environment, are beautiful and are easy to maintain.
Interior designers also prefer natural materials likebamboo floors. In surveys, they have identified beauty, durability and ease of maintenance as hardwood flooring's primary attributes. In addition, more than half recommend their clients to install wood floors or floors made of wood combined with another material. Most would agree that they work with many decorating styles, add value to a home, are hypo-allergenic, environmentally friendly, easy to clean and last a lifetime.
