When you need to go to the bank, you don’t need to buy a new wooden door.
Instead, you can use a bamboo door or a ceramic door, both of which are cheaper and more durable than wooden ones.
But what about the time you need a wooden floor?
Why not just buy a bamboo floor and go?
“If you are using a bamboo, it is not really that big of a deal,” says Manish Singh, director of the Institute of Sustainable Engineering and Urban Design at JNU.
“But if you have a wooden wall or a wooden fence, the bamboo will cost more and you have more room for things to fall.”
Wooden doors are expensive The bamboo flooring is cheap, so why is it that we’re not seeing more bamboo floors?
“It is because bamboo is not as sturdy as wood,” says Singh.
Bamboo is much harder to make than wood, so you need more material than wood to make a wooden frame.
For instance, a bamboo frame would cost about $100, while a wooden one would cost $25.
If you can’t afford to buy bamboo, you might want to think about a wooden-frame home.
It may not be as beautiful as a wooden home, but it would be more affordable and less likely to fall down.
What about wooden fences?
While some wooden fences are cheaper than bamboo, a lot of them are expensive, says Rajesh Kumar, director at Panchayati Raj, a non-profit organisation in Jharkhand.
“Bamboo has a lot more properties than wood,” he says.
A wooden fence is one of the few materials that has been used for centuries for fencing, so its durability is not that great.
“It’s much more difficult to make,” Kumar says.
“If a wood fence is made in a small area, you will not need to make more than one at a time.”
You can also buy bamboo poles for home decoration, he says, which can be used to hang pictures, curtains or anything else that doesn’t need support.
“We can see a huge difference between bamboo and wood,” Kumar adds.
And bamboo isn’t the only material that is inexpensive.
“I can’t think of anything cheap that we have seen,” he adds.
“There are some cheap bamboo products out there.”
