Timber Flooring vs Bamboo Flooring

timber flooring

Timber flooring exudes 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 (9.1 kN) and Spotted Gum (11.0 kN) are some of the hardest timber floors.

bamboo FLOORING

Bamboozle 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 flooring 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 hard 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 opt to use Enjo microfibre mops or a steam mop occasionally. The tight fixing method also means that an accidental spillage of red wine is readily cleaned up leaving no evidence!

why bamboo?

Flooring is the only part of your home you touch at almost every moment of every day. So while looks are important, so too is the sense of touch. To the eye, our premium bamboo flooring has a natural glow other floors can’t match. And because of its unique grain, bamboo floors give homes a beautiful flow from room to room. Our customers tell us time and again that their bamboo flooring makes them feel good about their home. It touches their hearts as well as their toes. The fact that bamboo is forest-friendly will make you feel good inside too.
