Please help. I really want to install bamboo flooring in my master bath that is currently being remodeled. My intention is to eventually floor my entire house in bamboo. However, just before the previous owners sold us the house, they installed new hardwoods in the kitchen, dining, and entryway. I don't have the money to rip out and replace perfectly good hardwood floors, but I'm afraid when I lay the bamboo floors down in the rest of the house the mismatch will be unattractive. ANY ADVICE???

well then you have to decide what is more important.

your desire for bamboo floors, your money, or the decorative contrast between the two.

personally, I would isntall the banboo in the bathroom if that's what I wanted, then take 5 seconds and close the bathroom door if I didnt like the contrast between the two when the door is open.


There are two ways to do any job.

The right way and the wrong way.

Do it right everytime.
