Bamboo flooring is a type of flooring made from, you guessed it, bamboo. Bamboo is a completely renewable resource and is thus one of the most sustainable options for flooring. Even though bamboo is technically a grass, not a timber, it is classified as a hardwood for flooring purposes. Installing bamboo flooring is very fast and easy as you are able to lay it over just about any substrate, including concrete, existing timber floors, plywood, particleboard, or even joists.
There are different types of bamboo flooring systems but the most commonly utilised is the tongue and groove flooring. You can also install it as a click lock flooring system. Bamboo flooring comes prefinished in environmentally friendly and solvent free polyurethane. The finish can be either satin or gloss.
Bamboo flooring most commonly comes in light colours but that doesn’t mean that you are restricted in your choice of colours in any way. The flooring also comes in darker colours (through processes such as tinting or carbonisation), which means that you have complete freedom of choice when it comes to choosing a bamboo flooring colour that suits your home decor.
Bamboo flooring is an excellent choice for many reasons. Here are just some of its benefits:
The good news is that bamboo flooring is relatively easy to install, meaning that you can do it yourself as a DIYer. This is because no sanding or finishing is required. However, if you are not confident in doing this, or prefer not to, you can have it installed by a professional flooring installer. Your supplier should be able to recommend someone to do this for you if they don’t already have installers that they prefer to use.
