Kitchen Magic is a green kitchen cabinets company. They believe in using ecologically responsible products that last longer and help save our environment. Bamboo is a wood that is hard, looks nice and lasts longer than many other woods. Bamboo is a very strong wood that is also light. It has been used in many cultures for building. In the Philippines, much of the furniture is made of bamboo. Other cultures know that Bamboo lasts longer, is strong and lightweight. The amazing thing about bamboo is the amazing looking furniture and cabinets that are made out of this very strong wood.
It takes bamboo seven years to grow to maturity, oak takes forty years to grow to maturity. Both are hardwoods, but bamboo is much easier to grow. This makes bamboo an ecologically responsible product that actually lasts much longer. Smart companies like kitchen-magic know this fact and this is why they build their cabinets out of bamboo. The problem with oak is it swells and contracts over time. Bamboo does not have this problem and is becoming the favorite wood of many home owners.
I believe when we replace our kitchen cabinets, we will choose bamboo. I love the clean and elegant look of bamboo. I also appreciate how bamboo lasts a long time which means I won't have to replace my cabinets after 7 or 8 years of use.
