The Best Bamboo Floors in Brisbane

For homeowners who are conscious of their environmental footprint, bamboo flooring is ideal. In addition to being sustainably grown, it is also biodegradable. Since bamboo grows so quickly, suppliers can harvest bamboo at a rapid rate without any adverse environmental impacts. As a natural timber product, it offers all the aesthetic advantages of a regular timber floor. This includes a pleasant underfoot feel with warmth and comfort. In addition, Bamboo has a high hardness rating. This essentially means that bamboo is a durable and hardwearing flooring material.

Bamboo floors are prefinished in the factory, so it is easy to install. This means that the price of the installation will be lower than other flooring products. At Bennetts Carpets, we can install bamboo directly to the subfloor, so you get a solid and long-lasting installation.

We sell bamboo from a variety of suppliers, and all our Brisbane bamboo flooring products are 14mm thick and engineered. Some of the brands we stock include Big River, Preference Flooring and Premium Floors. For a striking and clean finish to your flooring, you simply cannot go past bamboo. It has many advantages, including:

  • High hardness rating for better durability in high traffic areas
  • Attractive, stylish flooring option with many colours available
  • Easy to maintain, water-resistant & more affordable than many other timbers
  • Great for renting, as it can be removed & relayed easily, or even sanded & refinished like timber

FAQs – Bamboo Flooring Brisbane

Bamboo is a very durable flooring product. What a lot of people don’t know is that bamboo is, in fact, a member of the grass family, as opposed to a conventional timber. It typically grows in wet environments and is more water-resistant than many other timbers. Because of these properties, some people even choose to put bamboo flooring in their bathrooms.

However, bamboo still shares many of the same properties as regular timber. This means that it can absorb water. If bamboo or timber flooring absorbs water, the results can be quite damaging. The bamboo will swell, causing the flooring to buckle and warp and split.

At Bennetts Carpets, we recommend wiping up any spills on your bamboo flooring immediately. Similarly, we do not advise using bamboo flooring in your bathroom. Bathroom floors are prone to getting wet—it is inevitable. In all likelihood, this will result in your bamboo floors buckling or warping over time. The consequences are simply not worth the risk. If you do have any questions about suitable flooring products for your bathroom, then let us know. We have a wide range of flooring materials on offer, and the experience to back up our advice. With Bennetts, you can rest assured that you are getting the best flooring solution possible.

Bamboo is a species of grass, even though it is harder than a lot of regular timbers. What this means is that bamboo grows far more rapidly than hardwood timbers do. Bamboo takes 5-6 years to reach full maturity, while some hardwood trees can take more than 50! With such a rapid growth and maturity cycle, bamboo can be harvested very sustainably. This is enhanced even further by its complex root system. When bamboo is harvested, the roots do not die. Instead, they continue to grow more bamboo. This means that bamboo is produced in very large volumes, over very short periods of time.

Not only is this great news for the environment, but also for your wallet. Because producers can harvest bamboo relatively easily, it is quite a cheap flooring product. This contrasts with a lot of mature hardwoods, which are beyond many homeowners’ budgets. As bamboo grows primarily in wet parts of the world, it is quite a hard and water-resistant material. This means it is durable and less likely to sustain water damage than many other timbers. It also has a sleek, stylish and modern appearance. Bamboo flooring is far paler than hardwood timbers. This is appealing to homeowners who are looking for a sleek modern look for their flooring.

Bamboo is a very durable and hard flooring material. Because of this, it resists scratches and dents quite well – far better than a lot of softer timbers. However, over the years it is likely that your bamboo flooring will sustain some minor scratches or damage. This is quite common, and it is something that affects almost all flooring products. As dirt and dust gather on your floor, they gradually abrade the surface of the bamboo. No matter how well you maintain your floor, this can still happen. However, it is important to clean and maintain your bamboo flooring well.

If it deteriorates in the future, then there is no need to worry. You can sand and restore bamboo flooring in the same way that you can sand and restore other timbers. When done well, this will leave your bamboo looking as good as new. At Bennetts Carpets, we offer a range of maintenance services. Our experts can also provide you with professional advice on how to maintain your bamboo flooring, to minimise any damage.
