Click here for detailed information.

Morning Star Bamboo Flooring is one of the best bamboo floors on the market today. It is produced from old growth bamboo reeds that are at least 4 years old, thereby increasing hardness. Morning Star Bamboo Flooring creates a naturally beautiful and ecologically friendly product that evokes a feeling of luxury.

Quick Highlights:
- Real Bamboo
- Eco-Friendly
- Low Emission Adhesive
- Glue or Nail Down
- Premium Finish
- 30 Year Warranty

Strand
Twice as hard as oak, strand bamboo is an optimal choice for busy homes when durability is needed to stand up to the wear and tear of family foot traffic, active kids and even pets. 

To make strand bamboo, shredded bamboo fibers are compressed under extreme heat and pressure.  This manufacturing process yields flooring that is even harder and more dense than traditional bamboo floors. Available in a variety of colors to complement and décor, all Morning Star strand bamboo products are finished with premium coating and backed by a 30 year warranty.

And, since bamboo is a naturally sustainable grass that re-grows spontaneously after harvest, you can feel good about making an environmentally friendly flooring decision.


It's simple...
Eco-Friendly. Beautiful look. Beautiful price.

                  Was installed in our master bedroom. Flooring was installed by a private contractor. We were told the material was very hard to cut. Very pleased with the finished product. Extremely satisfied with the products & service from our Oakhurst, NJ LL. We have had these floors for about 6 months and have 3 dogs (2 large, 1 small), so far we have not seen any scratches on any of the flooring. We will continue to consult with LL for our future flooring needs.

                    I love this flooring, it's so easy to install. It's very hard wood, so you need the right tools to cut it. Be sure to wear gloves there are little pieces of wood that will stick out from the ends that will get you, if your not careful. This isn't on the top of the wood, just on the sides when your handling the pieces to install.

                      Very happy with this floor. Came out better than we had imagined. Very hard wood. Spend the money to get a nice miter saw and the finishing blade and it will be perfect.

                        We have had our floors for over a year now and we absolutely love them. We cannot believe the difference they made in the overall look of our room. When our friends come to visit it is the first thing that we want to show them because they just pop. After having the bamboo flooring for a year, we have decided that we are going to do the rest of the house with it. It is going to be a task having the old wood switched out for the bamboo, but we know that we will be more than pleased with the refreshed look of our home.

                            This floor is amazing !
                            From my experience, it was very easy to install, and the underlayment recommended was perfect.
                            I must say that Bamboo is very dense, so use a circular saw with as wide a diameter as possible, to avoid the saw blade running hot.
                            I did not have any problems with my 8 1/2 inch. saw, but I could smell something burned every time I cut a board.
                            The floor looks amazing, and I am so happy I got this !

                            Service and delivery comments:

                            Everyone at Lumber Liquidators are very service minded, and ready (unless they are serving other customers).
                            We are so happy we got this, and not the less quality stuff from a chain just below the freeway :-)

                                  • Q:

                                    I am excited to try the Morning Start Bamboo Strand flooring in a motorhome application. I would be glueing it down. One reason I thought I would prefer the Bamboo glued down, versus a floating laminate, is that I would no need expansion gaps around the perimeter and not need qtr moulding. However, I just read the install instructions and apparently you do need an expansion gap around perimeter, is this true? Area would be 7.5 ft wide and 35 ft long.

                                      A:

                                      Yes, bamboo acts much like hardwood flooring in that they expand and contract. Climate in the room installed can effect the flooring. A motorhome is generally subjected to extreme temperature shifts as well as humidity. These floors would not be recommended for such an application. I recommend contacting a coach/camper builder such as Winnebago or Coachman for the best recommendation.

                                    We are considering using the Antique Strand Handscrapped Bamboo in our home including the treads and risers for the stairs. Do you have any recommendations when matching the floors to the stairs?

                                    I have a sample of the Morning Star Bamboo Flooring product number 10023638 found on sample's yellow sticker. The sample shows a darker color (which I prefer) than the pictures on the website. Even some of the pics of installed flooring on your website (below website pro pic) show variation in overall color. I understand that each piece has variations of colors but I'm referring to the overall result. What can I expect for the overall color-the sample I received or what's shown on your website?

                                    Also that very same sample is not listed on the sheet I received with my 8 samples. Instead it appears that the product number to reference that sample is 10023749 (on list)but not the product number I see listed on the sticker on the sample (10023638)??

                                      We can only recommend our Bellawood Floor Cleaner, or cleaners that are safe for water based urethane finishes. Never use any polish, wax, oil soaps or cleaners that add shine to the floor. In addition, we do not recommend using steamers or wet-jet cleaning systems for hardwood because spraying can collect moisture in between board edges. The use of these products is at your own risk.

                                    Our contractor is installing this using an air gun and the 18 ga L nails recommended (we confirmed with the store at the time we picked up the flooring). He is having problems with the nails after going through the tongue, the nails are not going through the OSB subfloor instead they are bending back around to the back of the piece of flooring sometimes coming through. We called the helpdesk and asked for recommendations and did what was recommended but it still happened. Can we try another ga nail, another type of nail, etc. He ended up hand drilling and hammering the rest of the floor in.
