About dark coloured bamboo flooring?

Bamboo is naturally a golden colour. To create a dark coloured bamboo floor, the floor either needs to be smoked (carbonised) or stained.  When the raw bamboo is carbonised, the colour changes from a golden blonde colour to a coffee brown colour.  If you opt for a stained bamboo floor, the planks of flooring are made with natural bamboo, and then a colour stain is added to the surface. 

There are many different options of dark colour stains, including stone grey and chestnut brown. You may also want to think about the style of bamboo flooring.  There is a choice of plank style flooring or parquet blocks.  Parquet blocks can help you to create a truly beautiful and stylist looking floor.  The blocks are fitted together to create geometric patterns.  Alternatively, plank style bamboo flooring is available in different widths and lengths to offer something to suit your size and style of room. 


Why choose dark coloured bamboo flooring?
