Traditional Bamboo flooring is usually offered in two colors: natural and carbonized. It's the actual process of boiling which generates the different colors. The carbonized bamboo has a smokey like hue, that really resembles caramel. If it is boiled longer, the starch is caramelized creating the hue, whereas, a shorter boiling time helps to retain the natural blonde color of the bamboo.
Carbonized bamboo does come in a range of shades as well. The natural blond flooring is harder than the carbonized flooring, which is lessened by thirty percent.
