Meta Description: Bamboo Flooring, one of the most popular types of hardwood flooring, is available in different types which can be used for different purposes!

As compared to all other hardwood flooring types, Bamboo Flooring stands out due to its eco-friendliness and sustainability. The popularity of Bamboo flooring, at both residential as well as commercial levels, has skyrocketed over the past few years.

It is 4X harder than the Oak flooring, is perfectly durable, and scratch-free. Another feature that makes it one of the most popular flooring types today is its versatility. Bamboo can be constructed to make a variety of different flooring types, which is why you will find diversified flooring types when you choose Bamboo flooring.

Types of Bamboo Flooring

When talking about the types of Bamboo flooring, you can find this flooring in both solid planks and the engineered form. There are different constructions, profile types, and various colors available in the market, each of these types has their applications!

Construction Types

Horizontal Construction

In horizontal construction type, the bamboo is cut into small and thin strips, that are dried and glued together horizontally. The fitting profile is then added. It is followed by the addition of layers of lacquer to the surface for the protection and finishing the floor. The horizontally constructed Bamboo flooring features a prominent grain pattern.

Vertical Construction

After being cut into small and thin strips. These strips are dried and glued together vertically. The fitting profile is added using a machine, followed by the addition of protective layers of lacquer are added for the surface finish of the floor. Vertical construction forms thin planks with not-so-prominent grain patterns.

Strand Woven

Bamboo is shredded into fibers and strands, which are dried and compressed to stick together under excessive pressure. The grain pattern due to this construction is random, and it is stronger than both vertical and horizontal constructions.

Profile Types

Tongue and Groove

It is the traditional fitting profile of wooden or bamboo flooring. Installation of tongue and groove profiled planks is easy.  The tongues and grooves are glued together and left loose over the underlay.

Click Fitting

The bamboo floor planks of this profile use the uniclic system. By simply clicking and clocking the planks together makes installation simple.

Parquet Block

The Bamboo flooring with Parquet block feature a tongue and groove profile. Instead of planks, it consists of Parquet block which creates delicate geometric patterns.

Colors

Besides the construction and flooring, there are different colors that you can choose from. The colors affect the durability, hardness, and various other features of the bamboo flooring. Carbonized Bamboo flooring features a rich warm look. Also, bamboo planks can have other wood grain and coloring images applied to its surface. The natural state is warm blonde makes it easy to match with all types of home decors.

A Boost to Veganuary

As many of you may already know… It is Veganuary. A time where we commit to one of our many New Years’ resolutions and try something we wouldn’t usually.

Veganuary is an awesome example of committing to something new, as the charity-based movement challenges people to become Vegan for one whole month.

We recently found an article relating to London’s Hilton Hotel and their response to the growing awareness of the meat-free and cruelty-free lifestyle. Their team has collaborated with Bompass & Parr, a London-based studio and The Vegan Society to bring an eco-friendly, plant-based and animal-free suite.

Part of the article, which struck the team the most, was that bamboo flooring had been laid within the suite. This is amazing for the industry and we have high hopes for 2019! Here at Bamboo Family, we provide ‘the world’s hardest and most sustainable floors’ so here’s to 2019.

This amazing suite also includes memory-foam pillows, which have been manufactured from shredded bamboo fibres and recycled cluster polyester. Again, great news for the industry- and we hope this continues to grow.

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog and we hope it was interesting. If you have any queries about Bamboo Family and our products, please contact the team via email- sales@bamboofamily.co.uk or phone 01772 864206.

Benefits of Bamboo

Benefits of Bamboo Technically a grass, bamboo has been used in decorations and a number of other assortments, but has only recently been used on a large scale for floors. Perhaps as a result of the sustainable movement, the material has become increasingly popular. However, even though it a sustainable resource, it is also a cost effective one. Although laminates are cheaper for flooring, most traditional hard wood flooring costs more money than bamboo does. The benefits of bamboo are many folds. First of all, it is a natural anti-bacterial that will help buildings where there are children or people who cannot be in contact with bacteria for fear of sickness. Another great feature of bamboo is that it is water resistant, which makes it a better choice than many other hardwood floors that can stain or deteriorate when any kind of moisture gets in contact. It is also an extremely durable piece of material that is easy to move, yet still hard enough to provide you with great flooring. For those who like doing DIY projects, there are a number of options with click and tongue and groove that allow for easy installation. Nonetheless, if you want the best fit and installation you might want to hire a professional to do it for you.
