What is the best type of bamboo flooring for my conservatory?

Bamboo flooring is a perfect choice for a conservatory.  It is durable, versatile and has the ability to withstand changes in heat, temperature and humidity.  Conservatories are constantly changing temperature.  In the summer months they can get extremely warm and humid, while in the winter time the air can be come dry and the temperature can get extremely cold.

What are the main types of bamboo flooring?

The two main kinds of bamboo flooring are:

  1. Solid bamboo flooring. This is made with strips of bamboo which have been glued together.  The result is a natural, durable and stable floor covering which is as strong as Oak flooring.
  2. Strand woven bamboo flooring. This is made with bamboo fibres that have been bonded together to create an even stronger and more versatile floor covering. It has been tested to be over twice as hard as Oak flooring.
