Types of Bamboo Products.
Bamboo is processed to make Laminated Bamboo or Strand-Woven Bamboo. Both are used as the material for making cabinets. Laminated bamboo refers to long slats which are produced through the cutting of bamboo stem into thin long slats. The slats are processed into planks or sheets under a lot of pressure and heat. The final slats resemble the real traditional plywood sheets or planks with visible laminate layers. The cabinets produced using these sheets resemble real bamboo stalks.
Strand-woven bamboo is manufactured by crushing bamboo into pulp. The pulp is shaped and compressed to form planks for flooring or sheets used for the cabinets. Strand-woven bamboo looks like wood lumber.
With time bamboo is going to be dominant in making cabinets completely replacing traditional materials. Strand-woven bamboo is harder as compared to laminate bamboo making it a bit more expensive. Those keen on the budget prefer cabinets made of laminated bamboo which are cheap. However, many prefer cabinets made of the solid bamboo sheets. Bathroom cabinets are mainly made using bamboo panels.
