#2: Countertops

A relatively new development in the uses for bamboo has been countertops. In this article posted on Home-style-choices.com, you’re going to get the full Monty on the ins and outs of choosing bamboo countertops. While bamboo is very durable, it is in many ways just like having any other kind of wood countertop, so the precautions you’d take with those you also have to take with bamboo. In addition, bamboo countertops are not a solid wood type of surface. Bamboo is actually a type of grass and so any bamboo counter top you get has been constructed in a way that’s similar to plywood, which means the elements that make it up have been glued together. This is important on several levels, not the least of which is the care you will need to take with your countertop when it comes to water and heat. You wouldn’t want to put a very hot pan or pot on your bamboo countertop because you could leave a burn that will not come out. That said, every surface you will be deciding between will have its own unique areas where you have to be careful, so this shouldn’t be a deal breaker.
