Bamboo flooring is extremely versatile so both solid bamboo flooring and engineered bamboo flooring can be installed in almost any room in your house.
Bamboo flooring is dimensionally stable, meaning that it does not expand and contract as much as some hardwood floors. This allows it to be installed quickly and easily over almost any subfloor that is of sound quality and has been well prepared. Because of its durability and stable properties, bamboo flooring can be used with underfloor heating and installed in rooms where temperature and humidity fluctuates, such as kitchens, conservatories and rooms with large amounts of glazing.
The only room that it is not recommended to install bamboo flooring in is a bathroom due to the excessive water and moisture. The durability of strand woven bamboo flooring means that it is over twice as strong as Oak flooring so is ideal for high traffic areas such as hallways and living spaces, and is also becoming more and more popular in commercial properties.
All types of bamboo flooring can be:
• Installed quickly and easily over almost any subfloor
• Used with underfloor heating systems
• Loose laid or floated over an underlay as it does not necessarily need fixing in position
• Installed in areas of fluctuating temperature and humidity, such as kitchens, conservatories, rooms with large amounts of glazing and rooms with wood burners
