Timber Flooring vs Bamboo Flooring

Deciding on the type of flooring that best suits your needs is no easy decision. Both timber and bamboo can look absolutely stunning in your home and really add a level of warmth and comfort. It's natural to weigh up timber flooring vs bamboo flooring and we look at both materials below.

Timber Flooring

Timber and floating timber flooring exude a quality and warmth in any home. There are many types or species of Australian timber, giving a wide range in colour and grain, but also giving a wide range of hardness. Timber Hardness is measured by the Janka Hardness Test – the higher the number, the denser and harder the timber. Some timbers are relatively "soft", Tasmanian Oak for example having a value of 4.9 compared to Jarrah with 8.5, whilst Eastern States Blackbutt is one of the hardest floors with a value of 9.1

Bamboo Flooring

bamboo flooringBamboozle have had many years of supplying and installing quality bamboo floors to the new home and renovation market, either conventional bamboo grain or "Bamwood" – a bamboo floor that's over 70% harder than Jarrah, and gives the look and feel of conventional timber flooring. Bamboo flooring today is mostly supplied pre-finished and stuck direct onto concrete. Furniture can be moved back after only several hours, reducing disruption for renovators. Bamboo flooring has all the attributes of quality timber flooring – a warm look and feel to suit the most discerning of owners, and a look that can be improved after many years of service if necessary by sanding & polishing to give a traditional finish. As far as health and cleanliness is concerned, bamboo flooring scores high marks. Pets are disinclined to mess a floor, but it can be easily cleaned, however pets can find bamboo floors a bit slippy when rushing about! Bamwood flooring is scratch resistant and easy to clean, many owners opting to use a steam mop occasionally; and the fixing process means that an accidental spillage of red wine is readily cleaned up leaving no evidence!
