After searching our options, we found the perfect materials for the flooring in our suites. In our East River suite (formerly known as the Dalmatian suite) and Chesapeake suite (formerly known as the “Roman” suite) we went with bamboo. Morning star Bamboo to be exact. The stranded varieties are the most  environmentally friendly. Every time it is harvested, it grows back to it’s same maturity every 4 years or so. Far faster than trees and it doesn’t require replanting. It uses all of the harvested bamboo stock and is weaved together under high pressure. The finished product is stronger than regular bamboo and any type of wood flooring.

If everyone considering new flooring goes with bamboo as opposed to regular wood, we can make a big impact towards saving our environment. It also looks REALLY good! For the East River suite, we went with the “Tiger strand”. Here’s some photos of the installation and a close up of the flooring:
