Kitchen cabinets are a very important feature in the kitchen. Installing bamboo kitchen cabinets provide a great look and provide many benefits. Bamboo kitchen cabinets are fast becoming the first choice for homeowners who want a modern, attractive and eco-friendly kitchen. Bamboo kitchen cabinets are just as beautiful as the more traditional hard wood alternative. Bamboo has been an extremely popular choice for flooring for a number of years and now it is increasing in popularity as a material for the finest hand-made kitchen cabinets. Bamboo is a grass, although it is just as strong, and in some cases stronger, than traditional hard woods. Bamboo is being grown and harvested from sustainable produced crops which can re-generate themselves within only three years. Hard woods can take up to thirty years to re-grow after they have been harvested. This is one of the main reasons it is being chosen more widely. It allows the homeowner to make a real and significant contribution to the environment by using a sustainable product.
Bamboo kitchen cabinets are becoming the first choice amongst homeowners who are looking for a beautifully designed contemporary kitchen. The natural colour of Bamboo is a lovely light pine shade, known in the trade as ‘blonde’. Bamboo, although it is as strong as hard wood, and in some cases stronger, does not look exactly like wood. Since it is a grass, it needs to be laid flat to create the cabinetry. As a result, it lends itself more to the smooth modern kitchen cabinetry designs that are popular today, rather than the traditional designs which included panels and raised beading on doors.
