A mixture of strand woven bamboo plank and parquet block throughout this Leicestershire bungalow


Mike, from Rothley, decided to replace the carpets and change the hallway flooring in his Leicestershire bungalow.  This included an entrance hall, study, lounge and dining room, for which he needed over 60 square meters of flooring.  Mike had already decided that he did not want to have new carpets as they can get too dirty and worn in busy areas.  He looked at hardwood flooring but couldn’t find a colour that suited the style of his bungalow. Bamboo flooring met all of his needs; it’s hardwearing, easy to keep clean and brings a modern look to the property.


After looking at samples of different styles of bamboo flooring, Mike chose to use two different types of bamboo throughout his home, which we feel really complement each other.  He chose strand woven planks and strand woven parquet blocks, both in the natural colour.

Strand woven bamboo is great for any busy areas in a home, like living spaces and hallways. 

It is hardwearing and easy to look after, making it an ideal choice for Mike.


The finishing touches of the room have been added by using matching natural strand woven bamboo skirting boards throughout.  This really helps to complete the look of the rooms.  The natural colour of bamboo flooring is pale with golden tones.  We love the contrast of this colour against the fresh white walls, which really helps to give a bright and airy feel to the bungalow.


Parquet block flooring can create different geometric patterns

In the lounge area, Mike chose to have the traditional herringbone pattern, which is a fantastic choice for this stylish and sophisticated room.


“The combination of straight planks for most areas and a herringbone finish for the longer room gives added interest to what could be an overwhelming amount of wood flooring. The bamboo gives a hardwearing finish to each room and is easy to keep clean. The house now has a more modern appearance, and most visitors have commented favourably on how good the new floor looks. I have no hesitation in recommending The Bamboo Flooring Company to anyone considering a new or replacement floor.”
