Carbonised is one of the most popular colour choices of bamboo flooring. It is much darker than the natural, golden and blonde tones of natural bamboo. The flooring has a richer mid brown colour that looks stunning and will complement any home.
How is the bamboo carbonised?
The bamboo is carbonised when it is smoked in a kiln, which provides the brown coffee-coloured tones. The raw bamboo strips (or fibres) are smoked under extreme heat, which turns them into this beautiful and unique coffee brown colour. This means that the carbonised colour runs throughout the whole plank of flooring, not just on the surface like a colour stain.
When choosing a carbonised bamboo floor there are a few options to decide between:
Carbonised Horizontal or Vertical Bamboo
Thin bamboo strips have been glued together either horizontally or vertically to create the planks of flooHorizontal and Vertical Bambooring. Horizontal bamboo flooring has a wide grain pattern, whereas Vertical bamboo flooring has a narrow grain pattern.
