Morning Star Bamboo- 5/8" x 3-3/4" Stained Solid Strand Amber City Bamboo Flooring- 30 Year Warranty

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
- Glue or Nail Down
- 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.

    We absolutely love this floor. It is very hard and durable. We were a little concerned about the finish scratching as other reviewers had stated. We have 2 children and 2 large dogs who run and play on it like crazy as well as drop their heavy nylabones on it. We have had absolutely no scratching or denting. We are very happy with the color. The color changes slightly as the light changes throughout the day, and it is so beautiful and rich looking. We couldn't be happier. We had it professionally installed, which we would recommend. The floor is extremely hard and heavy. We noticed a slight odor when opening the flooring for the first time, but it went away within a day or so, and it was never bad enough to bother us in the first place. We would highly recommend this floor!!

    Service and delivery comments:

    We had a really good experience from the time we shopped for the flooring through installation. Everyone was very helpful and knowledgeable. We had a few boards that were damaged when we opened the boxes, but we had over 800 square feet ordered, so the damaged pieces were minimal. We were able to work around the damaged parts. We loved our installer. He was soooo helpful and he did an awesome job!!! Our floor looks great. Thank you!!

    We replaced the original carpet with Forbidden City Strand Bamboo. We put bamboo in the family room, bedrooms, dining room and hallway. Our contractor did an outstanding job and only took two days for approx 1124 sq ft. The local Lumber Liquidators Store personnel were outstanding. The Bellwood Floor Care System is really efficient.

    • Looks good

    Cons

    • Chip easily
    • Scratch easily

      Installation require a special 18 gauge nailer with L clips. It was difficult to install around the edge even with a professional installer. Product was scratched and chipped before even any traffic and furniture moved back on it.

        • any room
        • Dining room
        • Living Room

        I'll be honest, I did NOT do it with my handy husband. We are NOT handy. But we have a great contractor who knows what he is doing. I know that we purchased the tongue and groove, so it doesn't need to be nailed down. But my contractor used his super buff nail gun anyway to insure that everything stays there forever.

        The color is like a brazilian cherry wood and it is so gorgeous. It is a medium shade, maybe a bit darker. It has a slight shine; but not lacquered.It is a smooth service. If I had the money and didn't already tile parts of my main floor a few months ago. I would use it in every room. It's that sweet.

        Easy enough to clean, but it shows dust bunnies, dog hair and bits of stuff a lot more than the previous cream carpet. So now I definitely will be cleaning more. I accidentally made 2 slight scratched dragging a plastic box a bit while putting all the furniture and decorations back in the room, but it doesn't really show unless you are looking UP CLOSE

        My contractor says that this should last forever. Maybe a few years down the road it may need to be resurfaced, but that's every wood.

        Bad things: the floor is colder to sit on and it's a lot louder when the dog is barking, but that is the difference between carpet and wood.

        Can't say enough good things about it. As my husband has repeatedly said, "it looks like a whole new room." Thank you to all the nice sales people at Lumber Liquidators. Now I just have to return the extra boxes we didn't use!

        BUY THIS! You won't regret it. You'll thank me!

          Pros

          • Beautiful Color
          • Consistent color
          • Ll Installation Worth It
          • Very hard

          Cons

          • Install A Dirty Process
          • More Waste That Expected
          • Very Hard Product To Cut

          Best Uses

          • Bed Rooms Hallways
          • Bed Rooms Use Rugs

          We had LL install in two bedrooms (11x12 each)and a hallway. The installed floors are beautiful. We will have to see how they wear but some scratches are inevitable. Get the scratch pen from the hardware store. We also purchased the LL floor cleaning kit. Excellent quality kit (maybe a little pricey, but excellent quality). Don't even bother installing over a floor that is not flat, you will not like it. Have your installer level the floor (we did). It costs more, but the results are quite visibly better. Scratches? I have already scratched the floor (putting furniture back) and simply used a scratch pen to fix. Don't over stress about scratches, they are not hard to deal with. Oh, and one more thing; floor leveling /installation is an unbeleively dirty process. Make sure to move everything out of the rooms, put up plastic between rooms for dust, cover rugs in traffic areas the installers will use, etc. Floor leveling (grinding) is dirty dirty dirty. Like any construction expect to do some cleanup. The LL team here is first rate. Installation manager Keith is a professional and communicates/organizes/manages the process. Install crew lead Robert knows his work, has a good crew, and expects top qulaity work/results.

          • Surface Nailing

          Best Uses

            Surface nailing will dimple if using 18G nails with a nail gun. Next time we'll have surface nailing pre-drilled and hand nailed.

            Beautiful, but not DIY

            By DebbieT

            from Fremont, CA

            Verified Reviewer

            Pros

            • BEAUTIFUL
            • Durable

            Cons

            • Hard to install
            • Not Diy

            Best Uses

            • High traffic areas
            • Kid Areas
            • Kitchen
            • Living Room

            The floor is beautiful but be warned before you buy it that it is NOT a DIY product. Many pro installers won't even bid on installing this because it is very difficult to install due to the hardness of the epoxy used to bind the bamboo fibers The epoxy will bend nails, staples and cleats and the limited displacement ability of the fibers means that you get a lot of nails splitting the tongues of the product so you have to toss them - a lot of waste. Our installers even got nails ricocheting back into the gun - breaking it.

            We got some dimpling even using the recommended 18-gauge cleat nailer. and the installer did not want to continue because dimpling is not acceptable to professionals. We ended up finding out about a new 20-gauge cleat nailer ($600+) designed to deal with these floors. It was the only thing that worked after trying every option we could find -- staples, 18-gauge cleats, nails, everything.

            Also, be warned that you will go through a lot of saw blades due to the hardness of this product. Count on replacing them every 100 square feet or so.

            If you hire a pro (and you really should with this product) - make sure they use the 20-gauge cleat nailer or you will see dimpling at the nail points after installation.

            LL really needs to warn people what they're in for with this product in terms of installation. And they need to update their installation guide. One of LL's own installers would not come out to bid on installing this floor because he hasn't had a lot of success installing it properly. One serious option to consider is gluing rather than nailing it, but it will buckle if moisture gets under the glued surface. Cleating is better.

            Beautiful Floor!

            By Rachel M

            from Nashville, TN

            Verified Reviewer

            Pros

            • Easy to maintain
            • Hard surface
            • Looks like wood
            • Warms Up The Space
            • Water tolerant

            Cons

            • none

            Best Uses

            • Bedrooms
            • entry
            • Kitchen
            • Living Room

            I used this product in all rooms of my house except for the bathrooms. It has really changed the space by making it feel warmer and more modern. I have a Weimaraner with a lot of energy who is constantly playing with his toys and ice cubes on it. It has not made a single mark or dent on this floor - it is EXTREMELY durable. The floor looks a lot like wood and I am very pleased with the result. I cannot say for sure, but it also is not supposed to shrink and swell as much as wood over the season change - this is a HUGE plus living in the south with varying humidities and temperatures.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Our flooring sales person, Adney, was extremely helpful in choosing this floor. I would have NEVER purchased bamboo without his input on its durability and look. It was GREAT to have such an experienced flooring professional t bounce ideas off of. He even arranged for the flooring to be delivered directly to the house and it was in perfect condition when it arrived.

                A:

                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. Thank you for your inquiry.
