Carbonised parquet block bamboo flooring throughout a hallway and living space
Carbonised Parquet Block Flooring[/caption] Kathryn wanted an environmentally friendly floor to replace an old carpet in her home. The lounge and hallway were the rooms in question. Kathryn was also looking for a floor that was hardwearing enough to handle her big, playful dog. Whilst searching for a floor Kathryn looked at hardwood and laminate options, before deciding on carbonised parquet block bamboo flooring. “I loved the look of parquet but wanted something more environmentally friendly. Having a dog I was also pleased to see bamboo was more hard wearing than hardwood alternatives.”
Bamboo flooring is a sustainable and environmentally friendly choice of flooring, which was very important to Kathryn. The bamboo grass grows extremely quickly, meaning that it can be harvested every few years, compared to decades for a hardwood tree to reach maturity. Bamboo also has a self-regenerating root, which allows the bamboo to continue growing after it has been harvested. This eliminates the need for re-planting the crops and reduces the risk of deforestation.
We love the way that the bold colour scheme of Kathryn’s lounge really complements the rich brown tones of the floor.
Kathryn has chosen to lay the parquet block flooring in a herringbone pattern, which creates a beautiful flow throughout the downstairs of her home. The parquet block bamboo flooring has been made from strand woven bamboo. Due to the way the blocks have been constructed; it makes the flooring over twice as hard as Oak. The bamboo strands have been woven together and compressed to form this hard wearing a durable, but still natural bamboo flooring. Strand woven bamboo is perfect for busy areas like hallways and living spaces, and also great for homes with pets, like Kathryn’s.
Bamboo flooring is easy to look after and keep clean, which Kathryn has found helpful, especially with her beautiful dog.
To complement the bamboo parquet block, Kathryn also used the matching carbonised beading. This has really helped to finish off the area around the fireplace, adding a continuity to the room “I absolutely love my flooring and have had lots of compliments from friends and family. It was really important to me to have something more environmentally friendly than wood and it’s so easy to maintain, even with a big playful dog! The customer service from start to finish was amazing and I’m over the moon with the finished result.” Kathryn from Gateshead
