There are three major types of bamboo that you can purchase for your living room, and they each have their own distinct appearance. Horizontal bamboo has the most features, and will give you the most 'classic' bamboo look. Vertical planks have fewer natural characteristics, but have a more striated, straight line appearance. Strand woven bamboo has the fewest features, and the most solid and consistent look across the entire floor.

Rich dark bamboo flooring makes a powerful statement, especially when paired against lighter colored pieces. However be cautious, darker tones denote weaker bamboo, and this may lead to early degradation in a high traffic living room.
