Bamboo is one of the most environmentally – sustainable flooring types but it also has many practical and aesthetic qualities that appeal to even the most discerning consumer.

Unlike traditional hardwood trees, which can take up to 100 years to reach maturity, bamboo is a fast growing, sustainable resource. Although bamboo is often labelled as ‘wood’ it is, in fact, a grass, although its cell structure gives it very similar properties to wood. Furthermore, once acclimatised, bamboo exhibits virtually no expansion or contraction under normal atmospheric conditions, this makes it ideal for use in high humidity or damp areas such as bathrooms. Bamboo has been used in Asia for thousands of years. Not only is it 27% harder than red oak and 13% harder than maple, it is also lighter than most hardwoods. Bamboo is simply outstanding for use as a flooring material.

Unlike the thin poles familiar as garden supports, the flooring industry uses thick sticks with a diameter of around 300mm, up to 15m in length. Bamboo can be harvested from the mother plant without causing lasting damage. The mother plant produces new shoots every year, with stems maturing to become sufficiently hard and woody for harvesting within four to five years. In contrast, it takes in excess of ten years for Oak, Cherry or Maple to reach maturity.

What Our Customers Say About Us

Artisan Flooring were just superb from start to finish in the laying of our beautiful new wooded floor. The whole process was so professional and efficient from the fitting through to the finer details of trims and finish. Kevin was so helpful in terms of the technical details and went out of his way to make sure we had exactly what we wanted and that we were more than happy with the final result. We had used another Company for a previous wooden floor but Artisan far exceeded the prior Company in service, reliability, quality of fitting and personal service; there was just no comparison. A very big thank you to Kevin and the excellent fitters Pawel and Chris.

A great company to work with! The commitment that was shown by Artisan Timber during the re-cladding of our property exceeded all expectations. From the first contact to the finished result, nothing was too much trouble, and the attention to detail was first class.
