Suzanne of Charlotte, NC remodeled her home and loves her cork flooring, wall tiles and bamboo.
Hi, my name is Suzanne and welcome to my home in Charlotte, North Carolina. So my husband and I began our remodel project about 3 years ago and prior to actually beginning construction, we spent a great deal of time researching eco-conscious products for our home and flooring was one of the main components we were looking at. It was very Important to use that we find flooring products that were eco-friendly, LEED certified, and met our durability needs as well because we have to young children. After researching several different companies, Ikept coming back to Cali Bamboo their products seemed to have everything I was looking for. At the end of the day we ended up ordering cork flooring, bamboo flooring and cork wall tiles for our home and we have been very happy with them. We ended up deciding to do the Dawn cork flooring throughout most of our home, we like the color, we liked how soft it was, we liked its noise dampening properties, so we did that throughout the downstairs, the upstairs. For our bedroom we wanted to do something a little darker so I think we ended up going with the Mocha color bamboo flooring and we’ve been very happy with that as well. During the process of researching the cork flooring I came across the cork wall tiles on Cali Bamboo’s website. I really loved the way they looked and thought it would add a nice texture to certain areas of our home. We decided to do one wall in the cork wall tiles in our master bathroom around the vanity area. We liked that so much we ended up putting the cork wall tiles in our mudroom slash office area as well. Every time I called Cali Bamboo and spoke with Chris who was my rep that I felt with throughout this project he was very helpful and had great information to share about the products and ordering and was able to answer all of my questions quickly. Really great experience working with Cali Bamboo and I have and will continue to recommend them to my friends. And maybe who knows, there maybe another project in the future that I can use Cali Bamboo for.
