The family wanted a room that would be great for their two growing boys, but were limited on space, so designers created a room that fit every need. They installed bunk beds to make space for the two boys, and with a ladder on the side of the bed, getting up to that top bunk is a breeze. The bookshelves on either side of the bed make sure that both boys have space to show off their own personality, and, still, plenty of floor space remains for the boys to be able to play in their space.

"Bamboo has been around for a long time, but what we are seeing lately is an explosion of colors and styles," says Dean Howell, president of Atlanta-based MODA Floors & Interiors. While technically a fast-growing grass, bamboo is as hard or harder than most hardwoods when dried. Newer products called strand-woven bamboo, a highly engineered product using the inner fibers, are twice as hard as traditional bamboo flooring. Dean says that in addition to the common thin-banded styles shoppers have become accustomed to, bamboo is offered in wide-plank styles that mimic the look of classic hardwoods. As with all wood flooring, it's best to keep bamboo out of moisture-prone rooms like kitchens and baths.
