Sitting Room

Photo by Robin Stancliff Photography.
Warm, bamboo flooring replaced the slate tiles in the Lower Sitting Room, to add contrast to the tiles left on the stairs and floor above. The stair was framed with low walls, and accented with a light above.

The fan is by Fanimation, the model is Centaurus with "bent blades". A matching Centaurus fan with straight blades can be seen in the "Modern Great Room" photo.

Have you heard of any problems with bamboo flooring in such a dry climate? I've heard about boards splitting. Any thoughts?

Our floor has been down for 4 years, no splitting. The key is to use an engineered product, which is dimensionally more stable. Our boards have cupped very, very slightly, but I think it just adds to the character of the bamboo. The manufacturer's willl recommend humidifying the air, but we do not do that, since we have the doors and windows opened too often.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Tip: If you're ready to make your fan a design element in the room, think about it as you would a modern mobile. The unique curved blades of this fan are eye catching and contemporary.
Unique, circular tile stairs aid a smooth transition here.
