2. Bamboo furniture is more durable than wood furniture

As we promised, we will now explain that bamboo furniture may be more cost effective than wood furniture because it is more durable. It is a fact that bamboo furniture is stronger than wood furniture and is harder to mark up, dent, and scratch. You may have to replace wood furniture more often than you'd think if you want it to be in tip top shape, especially if you have children. You do not have to worry about this as much with bamboo furniture.

3. Bamboo furniture is eco-friendly, wood furniture is not

Bamboo has the ability to grow well without the use of pesticides or fertilizers and therefore, growing it does not contribute to these chemicals entering groundwater. Most importantly, Bamboo is biodegradable. We all are aware of the dilemma of shrinking tree forests and its impact on both the environment and the habitat of many animals. If you want an eco-friendly material, bamboo is definitely the option to go with.

There is not a single reason to purchase wood furniture over bamboo furniture, other than bamboo's slightly higher initial cost. And this is only in some cases and not all. If you can find bamboo furniture on sale, it it definitely the best option to go with. Bamboo furniture is better looking, more durable, and also more eco-friendly when compared with wood furniture. Last, bamboo furniture can also create a unique environment in your home that you simply cannot achieve with wood furniture.
