|There are different hardness levels to different types of bamboo, so if you go that route I would make absolutely sure you are getting the hardest bamboo possible. We put down bamboo hardwood in one of our other houses, in the kitchen, but I didn't research properly and it was very, very soft --- not quite as soft as pine but it didn't hold up, it got scratched and gouged by dog nails very fast. My husband's cousin recently renovated their kitchen and entryway, and used Tigerwood, good and hard, very striking look, but it was quite expensive. I believe black walnut is fairly hard. I did a quick Google and here are some things that came back:

You'll also want to take into account whether you are going to buy regular hardwood or engineered hardwood. Engineered hardwood is more affordable but can only be refinished once, whereas regular hardwood can be refinished many times.
