There are many benefits of strand woven bamboo flooring. First of all, you may want to know what strand woven bamboo flooring is.  It is a type of bamboo flooring that has been made in such a way that it has additional strength and durability.  The bamboo fibres have been woven together and compressed to form the plank of flooring.

For further information about how strand woven bamboo flooring is made, have a look at our article: Guide to Strand Woven Bamboo Flooring. The benefits of strand woven bamboo flooring are fantastic and make it a great alternative to other types of floor covering. 


Here are the top 5 benefits of strand woven bamboo flooring


1. Extremely durable and hard wearing

Firstly, strand woven bamboo flooring has been designed and developed to be a hard wearing and durable floor covering.  It is over twice as hard as Oak flooring, which makes it very desirable for busy living spaces, or commercial areas.  


2. Very versatile

Furthermore, the planks of strand woven bamboo flooring are extremely versatile.  They are dimensionally stable, meaning they can be installed in almost any room in your home (except bathrooms and wet rooms).  There are a wide range of colours and styles to choose from, making it easy for you to find something you will love. In addition, most types of strand woven bamboo flooring can be used with underfloor heating.  You can even install it in rooms where temperature fluctuates, such as conservatories.  


3. Easy to install and look after

In addition, strand woven bamboo floors are easy to install and maintain.  Depending on your subfloor and other personal requirements, you can either float the floor over underlay or fix it directly down to the subfloor.  The most common and straight forward way to install bamboo is to float it over an underlay.  Most of our strand woven bamboo also has a click fitting system, which can simplify the installation even more.  Once you have installed your bamboo, you will want to keep it looking clean and fresh.  This is easy to do.  Have a look at our Cleaning and Maintenance Guide.  


4. Eco-friendly and sustainable

What you may find especially relevant is that,  as with any bamboo floor, you will be purchasing an eco-friendly product.  Bamboo is a grass, which grows extremely fast.  The bamboo plant can reach maturity in around 5 years.  This is significantly less time than a hardwood tree takes to grow. Therefore, bamboo is seen to be an eco-friendly alternative to hardwood floors.  Furthermore, the bamboo root is self-regenerating, which means that after it has been harvested, the bamboo will continue to grow and produce abundant crops for the future.  Consequently, there is no need to replant the bamboo which has been cut, as it is self-sustainable.  


5. Cost effective

Finally, when purchasing strand woven bamboo flooring you will get a hardwearing, eco-friendly, natural floor covering.  It is very reasonable priced and can be found at a fraction of the cost of hardwood floors such as Oak or Walnut.  If installed and looked after properly, bamboo flooring can last for decades.  We feel that it is a very cost-effective floor, with many benefits and advantages.
