Selecting a material that is able to handle the humidity in this room is vital to make sure that they last for a long time. If a material is chosen that is not made to withstand humidity, it can expand and warp, resulting in a room that looks less than new. Bamboo is one of the few materials that can handle a little bit of humidity over a long period without changing size.
Making sure that cabinets are made of durable material is also a key to lasting good looks, particularly in households with smaller children. Softer woods, such as pine, make a beautiful cabinet, but they also tend to dent and scratch easily. Smaller children tend to be a bit rougher on everything, and can leave a brand new bathroom cabinet looking less than new in a matter of weeks.
Harder woods, such as oak are less likely to dent as easily, and more likely to leave a lasting impression on guests. Bamboo is another great option for cabinets in homes that have small children.
Making sure that bamboo cabinets, as well as those made of other materials, stay clean will help them be long lasting. The cleaning process will often vary depending on the type of material used. For example, a bamboo cabinet can be wiped clean with just a cloth and water. Harsher chemicals can sometimes be used on other materials. It’s important to know which cleaning solutions to use, and to clean bamboo cabinets as often as needed for long lasting good looks.
