What could be better than getting the flooring right in your own house? Well, having the Hometalk community celebrate your flooring success. Post photos of your updated floors for everyone to love, or ask questions about the best type of flooring materials. Whether you have tiled floors in your kitchen, or hardwood flooring in your living room, there are DIYers and professionals who have worked with flooring like yours, and can give you advice based on their flooring experiences. Every day is a great day to Hometalk about flooring.
Bamboo stair is milled from bamboo lumber, actually called bamboo plywood in US, pressed from layers of bamboo strips. Bamboo lumber after pressing will stay in kiln dry room for 2 weeks
to balance the moisture. Then we sand the lumber and get it milled with special machines.
Bamboo stairs can be produced in horizontal, vertical and strand woven. The color can be natural, caramel and tiger. There are some options with bamboo. Dimension can be customized. Bamboo stairs can be stained into colors, like oak, maple, cherry to match your hardwood flooring in the house. They are natural, beautiful and elegant and made of green material - bamboo.
If you are in need of new flooring but don't have much money to spend (or even if you do) then this fits the bill! I created this floor out of brown paper, Elmers glue, stain and
polyurethane. It was easy to do (albeit time consuming) and is very durable. This room is 10 X 12 and cost about $80, but future rooms will cost about $30 since I have plenty of leftover supplies.

apparently so......I learned this today the hard way. Got laminate floors installed in July, and THEN decided I wanted new interior doors. I love my doors, which were installed today,
BUT, since the floors were installed first, I now have a gap or two where the new frame doesn't cover the flooring. I am posting this for someone questioning which order to do this in. The funny thing is, my coworker and I just had this discussion this summer because she was doing both at the same time.
I now have to call back the flooring installer and hope he can do something for me that doesn't involve pulling up the floor and recutting. (which will not happen as far as I am concerned.) I did go purchase a new threshold and something called Pergo Sealant, which I may have to resort to to fill the gaps.
First we color sealed the grout line to make them all look uniform, with our standard color gray. After we were done sealing the grout lines, we then applied our Enhancer Seal to brighten the look of the tile and make the floor look brand new!
