Reasons to Use Bamboo Flooring for Spa Themed Bathrooms

Marian Moreno

Remodeling your bathroom to fit a spa theme is no small task. You not only need to be concerned about the decor for the room, but you are also dealing with a minimalist look as well. Too much colour or decor can detract from the very aspects that create the spa like feel. One aspect that you overlook is how the flooring blends in with the entire feel of the room. If you have not considered your flooring, here are some reasons to look at bamboo and why it may be the ideal choice for your remodeling project.

Water Resistant

One of the leading reasons people choose the bamboo flooring option for bathroom remodeling, and specifically spa themed bathrooms, is due to the natural water resistance of the option. Though this is important in any bathroom, it is especially important for spa themes. Most spa themed bathrooms tend to have some form of sauna, steam, or other option that would cause a build up of moisture in the room. Normally this would be a problem with timber flooring, but bamboo can hold up to it. In fact, if you do see more moisture than you would like on your flooring, simply wipe down with a towel.

Natural Material

Going with a spa themed bathroom generally means that you want a natural environment. You likely want it to be minimal and as close to nature in its design as possible. This helps ground you and helps to keep your relaxation in mind, body, and spirit in tact. Bamboo is ideal for this. It is natural and a plant-based option for your flooring. It generally needs very little in the way of processing as compared to timber options and especially to artificial wood look options. It is also a renewable resource that has a fast growth time, making replenishing it fairly easy without hurting the environment.


The last thing you want to do when you do a remodeling project is go back to replace something just a short time after the project completion. Usually when this happens it is the floor that needs replacing. This can be due to several factors, but the biggest one is usually durability. That is something you do not have to worry about with bamboo flooring. Bamboo flooring is known for its durability. In some cases it can be as durable as a red oak option. This makes it ideal for bathrooms that have a high traffic amount, the possibility of hard objects dropping on the floor, or other damage the floor may sustain.

In addition to the benefits listed here, there is also something to be said for the decor aspect of bamboo flooring. Keep in mind that you can get the bamboo flooring in multiple colour options including a dark wood if that is the lok you are seeking. You can also go with an Asian spa look, massage spa look, or yoga style spa as well.

The Benefits of Different Types of Flooring

Hello, my name is John and this is my new flooring blog. Last month, my wife and I finally got around to replacing the flooring in the downstairs rooms of our home. We had been meaning to do this since the day we moved in but one thing or another always got in the way. I contacted a flooring company who talked me through the various types of flooring I could have, explaining the drawbacks and the benefits of each type. In the end, we decided to have hardwood timber floors in our home as we wanted a traditional look. I hope you like my blog.
