If you are looking for an eco-friendly flooring solution that suits your Perth home then bamboo flooring is the first option for you. As good as hardwood flooring, bamboo floorings are natural and durable. Due to its eco-friendly materials, this is the perfect choice for environmentally conscious builders and renovators.
Bamboo flooring has many advantages leading to high demand due to its sustainability, durability and elegant appearance. It is one of the most in-demand constructions and flooring materials available especially since it is harder than most Australian timbers and its engineered construction provides high-density stability underfoot. With an average grade of 1,825 on the Janka Scale, bamboo is one of the hardest materials used in flooring – harder than hickory at an average of 1,820.
Bamboo flooring is the leading choice for environmentally conscious builders and renovators since it is the most sustainable flooring option available in the market. Bamboo is one of nature’s fastest-growing plants. Since bamboo is a type of grass, it regrows after being harvested, without the need to replant it again. It is capable of naturally growing up to 4 feet a day without any assistance from chemicals or pesticides and only takes 5 to 7 years to grow to its full size.
At Floors of Distinction, our bamboo flooring Perth supplies comes from leading manufacturers who source their bamboo from managed plantations, without threatening wildlife. It is an excellent alternative to tree wood that provides the same natural beauty and feel in your home as any solid hardwood. Additionally, engineered bamboo flooring does not tire out even after two or three decades.
There are different types of bamboo used in flooring but the most common include solid natural and engineered strand woven bamboo. Solid natural bamboo flooring is made from pure or natural bamboo fibres that are shredded, compressed and then glued together to make stable flooring. Engineered strand woven bamboo, on the other hand, has another layer of hardwood (usually plywood) which is stuck to the base to serve as another layer of flooring, creating a more durable and stable underfoot. Other types of bamboo flooring include laminate bamboo, horizontal bamboo, vertical bamboo and carbonised bamboo flooring.
You may think about the difference between the most common bamboo floorings which are engineered and solid bamboo flooring. In fact, there is not much difference between the two. Both bamboo floorings have the same durability, sustainability, and elegance that can bring to your home. The only slight difference between the two is due to the manufacturing process and the base layer of the material of engineered bamboo flooring which adds up to the cost. Nevertheless, both are great options that are perfect for your home and will last in the long run.
