Bamboo is the most economically viable natural flooring option, combining durability, aesthetic, under foot feel, and price in one irresistable package.


Q. “I’ve heard bad things about bamboo / have friends who had bad experiences with bamboo, how is your bamboo any different?”

A. When the bamboo craze first hit the Australian market, a lot of shops previously specialising in carpet decided to offer bamboo as well. This meant that carpet installers were now installing bamboo. The most essential part of bamboo installation is leaving an expansion gap around all edges of the flooring and in areas exceeding a certain width. A lot of installations were done without appropriate expansion allowances, so when the bamboo started expanding in high moisture seasons (as expected from a natural product), a lot of floors started bubbling up and had to be removed.

We have properly installed thousands of meters of all kinds of different bamboo flooring products every year for many years, and have never had a problem with it.


Our bamboo flooring is perfect for a “do it yourself” installation. You will maintain full warranty even if you are not a qualified professional. Furthermore, our friendly team at Zealsea Timber Flooring are more than happy to provide instructions and tips on the best way to install your flooring. Pop in today and grab the perfect materials for a weekend family project!


Measuring on the Janka scale, strand woven bamboo achieves a rating of 14. This is on par with Ironbark, considered Australia’s toughest natural timber.

Besides bamboo being an extremely ecologically sustainable material, our bamboo flooring also achieves the highest possible formaldehyde emissions rating based on European standards, E0. This stringent classification standard requires the wood specimen to have less than 0.5mg per liter of formaldehyde. Our bamboo has 0.05.

Bamboo Flooring

Nowadays, bamboo flooring is becoming increasingly popular among homeowners, architects and commercial developers. They all agree that the main reasons are that a bamboo floor is eco-friendly, strong, durable and cost-effective.

However, although architects and builders are using this type of flooring more and more, many people, especially homeowners, don’t know exactly what bamboo flooring is.

In this article, we’ll tell you more about bamboo flooring and you may be so impressed with this type of flooring’s advantages that you will consider bamboo flooring for your new home!

Different Types of Bamboo Flooring

There are different types of bamboo flooring for house and commercial installation.

Stranded Bamboo

The stranded bamboo flooring manufacturers shred the bamboo stalks into small strands and then compress them into sheets. They then cut the sheets into planks for use as building materials, including flooring.  Flooring specialists can use tongue-and-groove planks and nail them down, or use planks to float over the underlayment.

Horizontal Bamboo Flooring

 For horizontal bamboo flooring, manufacturers cut the strands into thin strips and then glue them together to form planks. This bamboo flooring is not as durable as stranded bamboo, but it has a beautiful appearance. The long stalk fibers are visible and this creates the “grain” of the flooring. You can also nail down the planks or create floating floor planks.

Engineered Bamboo Flooring 

Bamboo flooring manufacturers bond a thin layer of bamboo onto a plywood core. The floor installers then install the flooring in the same way as engineered hardwood planks. Engineered bamboo flooring is the cheapest option but is not as durable as the other bamboo flooring types.

To choose the best type to suit your flooring needs, consult with a reputable timber flooring company, such as Zealsea Timber Flooring

Advantages of Bamboo Flooring

Bamboo flooring offers many advantages. Let’s have a look at the most important pros.

·  Bamboo is Eco-friendly

Bamboo is a renewable plant and usually reaches maturity in less than five years. This means that, unlike trees, you don’t have to plant new bamboo plants once you have harvested them. Thus, bamboo flooring is an eco-friendly alternative to hardwood flooring.

·  Bamboo is Strong, Durable and Dimensionally Stable 

Stranded bamboo flooring is over twice as hard as oak, and therefore good for both commercial and domestic flooring. It is also dimensionally stable. This means you can use bamboo flooring where there are temperature changes. You can, for instance, use it with underfloor heating.

  • Low Bamboo Flooring Cost

Bamboo flooring costs about a third less than hardwood flooring but still offers the character and “feeling” of natural wood.  You can purchase different types and finishes at low prices.  

· Bamboo Flooring is Easy to Install and Maintain

A DIY enthusiast can fit both solid and engineered bamboo flooring easily.  You can glue or nail it onto the subfloor, or float it over an underlay.

To keep the bamboo flooring clean, you just give it a daily sweep with a soft brush and clean it weekly with a wood floor cleaning spray.

Something to Remember when Installing the Bamboo Flooring

When you install bamboo flooring it is important to leave an expansion gap around all edges of the flooring.   If you’re not doing it the floors can bubble up during very moisture seasons.

When you are considering flooring options, you have to look at bamboo flooring possibilities as well. Bamboo flooring gives the same “feeling” as solid wood floors but costs about a third less than solid wood.
