Bamboo Flooring

Home » Products » Wood Flooring Products » Bamboo Flooring
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

  • review rating 5  Artisan Flooring were just superb from start to finish in the laying of our beautiful new wooded floor. The whole process was so profession 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.

  • review rating 5  Great company to do business with. I used to be in the trade many years ago so I know good when I see it. Customer service from Joe was exceptional. Second time I have used them this year and will do so in the future. Give them a try, carpets or wooden flooring in my case, they won’t be beaten on price. Price is important but the overall service is to be admired. Thank you guys 👍

  • review rating 5  All I can say is brilliant, the entire service provided by artisan timber is fantastic. This is everything from the range of natural oak floor types they have on offer, all the way to the completed installation. The communication and survey was quick and helpful, quotation was fair and most importantly my new living room floor looks fantastic. ( I was so impressed I've decided to get my entire downstairs re-done) Would highly recommend!!

  • review rating 5  From start to finish Artisan Flooring were very professional. The fitters especially were really good. The fitters arrived on time and worked extremely hard. Every query I raised was sorted. I knew I had done the right thing, when every visitor to my house commented on how amazing my floor looked. This included friends, family and more importantly other trades people. I even had a small leak through my ceiling and you can’t see any damage to the floor. It wasn’t the cheapest floor, however with hindsight, worth every penny. I would recommend this company, as long as you get the same fitters as I did ! Not that I know of any others. Chris one of my fitters, seriously cut his thumb, whilst on my job. I was the one who sent him off to hospital. He was back the next day with his thumb stitched and lots of padding .... he just got on with his job along with a cup of tea and some biscuits.
