It is a strandad bamboo floating floor, random width available at Lowe's. I believe it's a distressed spice in color, it's goes all the way through the bamboo, not a stain.

All bamboo floors are not locking, some may come in a tongue and groove installation style, which is typically glued down. The locking has its pros if you are going over concrete or in a basement - allows the flooring to expand and contract with the difference in humidity levels in the air. Or if you are DIY, the ease of install is great.

If cost is taken out of the picture would you choose nail down, glue, or click? If you glue down do you glue to the underlay?

It again is going to depend on the type of flooring material. Keep in mind, if you choose a bamboo floor it cannot be sanded down because it is a grass. My flooring guru's here at the store and myself both agree that old school "nail down" is the way to go, however stranded bamboo is a much harder material and sometimes is too hard to nail down. Glue down is not glued to the subfloor - you glue the planks to each other.

Hope this helped!!
