What is Bamboo Flooring?

Bamboo floors are made from a type of grass (bamboo), and yet are harder and more durable than timber floors. Bamboo has an elegant natural beauty and superior durability, making this style of flooring an increasingly popular choice amongst Sydney home owners. Bamboo grows in abundance and faster than their tree counterparts, enabling it to become a more affordable and environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional timber floors.

Bamboo floors are made through a process of shredding the bamboo, and pressed together with high temperatures and glue. Main types include:

  • Strandwoven Bamboo Flooring – mixes the grass in an interlocked manner, making it the strongest and more expensive choice of bamboo flooring.
  • Horizontal Bamboo Flooring – refer to the bamboo being glued together horizontally and they exhibit a wider grain pattern.
  • Vertical Bamboo Flooring – refer to the bamboo being glued together vertically, leading to a more narrow grain pattern.

Bamboo flooring is great in many ways – it’s a more affordable and durable alternative to timber flooring. It’s harder to scratch on the surface, is stronger as a floorboard and has the elegant natural look of bamboo. The main drawback of bamboo flooring is that it doesn’t go well with water – so you must be careful in high moisture areas of the home!

Advantages of Bamboo Flooring:

  • Durability – Bamboo flooring is extremely durable, even more so than the strongest hardwoods. Strandwoven bamboo floors have a Janka Rating around 15.0.
  • Healthy – Bamboo flooring is a natural product which has minimal volatile organic compound emissions (VOCs). We only stock ranges with emissions below the stringent E0 ratings.
  • Sustainable – Bamboo flooring is environmentally sustainable, as the grass plant reaches maturity in only 7 years as opposed to hardwoods which take up to 80 years.

Disadvantages of Bamboo Flooring:

  • Water – Bamboo flooring is not waterproof. This means you will need to take care in wiping up spills to protect the beautiful floors.
  • Warping – Bamboo flooring is very dense which is great for durability, but it also makes them more susceptible to warping from moisture or temperature changes.

If you have further questions regarding bamboo flooring, don’t hesitate to contact one of our friendly flooring experts or check out our up to date Ultimate Guide to Choosing a Floor.

No, like many other floorboards, bamboo flooring is not waterproof. Many bamboo floors have some level of water-resistance because they have a wax seal, helping keep water out. However, care must be taken to wipe up spills immediately.

Pro Tips to Maintain Bamboo Flooring:

  1. Use a doormat at entrances to keep out water, grime and dirt.
  2. Do not install bamboo flooring in wet areas like kitchens.
  3. Use a slightly damp mop when cleaning and never flood the floors with water.

Proper care in cleaning and maintaining your bamboo floors will keep them beautiful for many years to come.

Floating floors are flooring that can be installed on top of a subfloor without nails or glue. This makes floating timber floors suitable for apartments and units and reduces the time and cost of installation.

  1. Floating floors are quicker to install than direct-stick counterparts.
  2. Floating floors are cheaper to install than direct-stick counterparts.
  3. Floating floor installations are more suited for apartments as it does not require loud banging of nails into the floor.

Extremely durable, and also much more environmentally sustainable compared to solid timber and other flooring alternatives.

Bamboo flooring sources grow to maturity in only 7 years, as opposed to hardwoods and oak which can take up 80 years. FloorVenue takes care in only stocking bamboo (and timber, engineered, laminate) flooring from certified sustainable plantation sources.
