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.

    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.

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.
