Are you going to renovate or replace a kitchen, and do you value style and convenience as well as sustainability? Consider a bamboo kitchen. We like to give you kitchen inspiration, because with bamboo you can realise your dream kitchen!
Bamboo is a super strong material that grows at lightning speed. Bamboo stems grow - depending on the species - at an average rate of 5 to 100 cm per day. After around 5 years, bamboo is ready for harvest; it is then harder than oak and some types of tropical hardwood, which have to grow for at least 100 years. New shoots then grow from the existing roots of the 'bamboo tree'. It is no coincidence that this versatile raw material is strongly on the rise in various (sustainable) applications. From super soft T-shirts, sustainable toilet paper and plastic-free cotton buds and toothbrushes to strong boards and poles for the construction industry... and for modern kitchens.
From plant to kitchen
Straight strips are sawn out of the (round) bamboo stems, which are - after processing - horizontally or vertically in several layers. The more layers, the stronger and more stable the board material. These different layers also give the boards a unique appearance, both on the visible side and on the sides.
Kitchen ideas: bamboo is easy to match
From the fronts of the kitchen cabinets to the worktops, bamboo gives a kitchen an elegant, natural look. Do you go all the way in design by making all the kitchen furniture out of bamboo? Or do you go a bit more subtle, by applying refined details of bamboo in the design of a modern kitchen? Bamboo is an all-rounder. Combine the natural brown tones of bamboo for example with timeless white, stylish black, sleek stainless steel, cool stones or trendy trend colours and pastels.
A sustainable kitchen with bamboo
For the true kitchen prince or princess, the ease of use of a new kitchen is obviously important. In modern kitchens, the use of bamboo is ideal, because the material is very strong and easy to clean. A bamboo kitchen is low maintenance and will remain beautiful for years. Really realize a sustainable kitchen, for yourself or a customer? Combine bamboo kitchen furniture with energy efficient appliances (with at least energy label A +).
