Distressed bamboo flooring means that the surface of the planks of bamboo have a distressed or textured feel. It adds character to the bamboo flooring and is great if you are looking for something to look slightly different to regular bamboo flooring.


How is bamboo flooring distressed?

The distressing is done during the production of bamboo flooring.  The planks of bamboo flooring are made in the usual way.  Then before the layers of protective lacquer are added, the surface of the bamboo is intentionally brushed by hand, using a wire brush.  This creates the textured feel by adding imperfections to the bamboo.  The planks of flooring are then coated with multiple layers of a matt lacquer, to add protection to the surface of the bamboo.
