Modern. Eco Friendly. Exciting
There’s been plenty of buzz about bamboo flooring in Brisbane recently as an increasingly popular choice for people who are renovating or looking to create a point of difference in their homes. As one of Brisbane’s leading retailers of quality bamboo flooring, Bennetts Carpets explain some important considerations when choosing this attractive and modern flooring option for your home in our latest post.
Make Sure You Choose You Bamboo Carefully
Not all bamboo floors are created equal. In fact in recent years people have had negative experiences with bamboo flooring after purchasing from less than reputable suppliers who use inferior products from China. The cost of good quality Chinese products from sustainable bamboo plantations varies little, so if the price seems too good to be true, it most likely is.
Bamboo flooring can be a much cheaper than hardwood flooring, but always invest in the best quality you can afford so your bamboo flooring is as durable as it should be.
Choose Strand-Woven Bamboo
Strand-woven bamboo flooring is the most durable option compared to cross horizontal or vertical bamboo, however cheaper strand woven products will sometimes skimp on the adhesives used to construct the flooring. Good quality bamboo flooring will have several coats of resin to bind the flooring together.
The bamboo flooring that we work with here at Bennetts Carpets is manufactured to strict fair trade guidelines and only uses safe adhesives making it a one of the most ecologically friendly flooring options that we sell.
The Benefits Of Choosing Bamboo
• Like other hardwood flooring bamboo flooring can be refinished and sanded back to keep them looking like new. The lifetime of quality bamboo flooring exceeds that of vinyl, carpet and other styles of timber flooring.
• Strand woven bamboo flooring is the most durable and also termite resistant unlike other hardwood floors.
• Moisture resistant
• Environmentally friendly and a renewable resource. Bamboo is classified as a grass rather than a timber and grows very quickly.
• Gives an irresistible modern finish and a touch of contemporary style to any home.
