Bamboo Flooring vs Laminate Flooring, Round One

09 March, 2016

Flooring is a significant investment in your home. You want a floor that not only looks amazing but lasts a lifetime. How often have you heard somebody get excited about laminate floors?  Somewhere between never and never ever.  The floor you lay in your home has the potential to add substantial value to your home or not.  

During the next few weeks we’ll put bamboo and laminate flooring head to head.

Round One: Lifespan

Laminate flooring is faux wood flooring option that is appealing if you are looking only at the price, and it hasn’t been stepped on yet.   Laminate flooring may save you money in the short term but it is less durable and has a much shorter life span than bamboo flooring. Laminate flooring will need to be ripped up and replaced within years, and the wear will be noticeable immediately.  Meanwhile Simply Bamboo Bamboo Flooring, with the right maintenance and some easy TLC, will last a lifetime. 

One Of These Things Is Easy To Clean

23 February, 2016

Bowl beats baby, bamboo beats bowl

Baby, Bowl, Bamboo: one of these things is easier to clean than the other. 

If you guessed the bamboo floor, you would be correct.  Protected seven layers of UV cured coating, a quick vacuum or (for really tough spills) a simple damp mop will bring back the original lustre of your bamboo floor. 

This is why bamboo floor is great for areas like kitchens, bathrooms...or wherever babies, pets and other wild animals may roam.

Bamboo: The Tip of the Eco-Friendly Iceberg

18 February, 2016

When you’re looking at a bamboo forest, your’e actually looking at only the tip of the iceberg: more than half the mass of a bamboo forest is the root structure underground.    inIndividual  poles above the surface are actually part of a huge interconnected root structure underneath.   Cutting one pole (usually less than 20%, only the mature poles) leaves the structure intact with many other culms to feed the root structure above.   These grass-like characteristics make bamboo floor eco friendly.

Bamboo: Keeping Winter Warm

10 February, 2016

Bamboo is a natural insulator.  This means unlike tile, which turns your floor into an instrument of refrigeration, or carpet, which traps humidity and allergies, bamboo keeps your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

This is because bamboo itself grows in climates that are both hot and humid, cold and dry.   Having perfected its insulation properties for itself over several million years, bamboo flooring brings these properties into your home.

Bamboo: Grows Fast, Installs Fast, Lasts Forever 

31 January, 2016

Part of its eco-friendly story, bamboo is legendary for how fast it grows.  Up to full height within a few weeks, needing only four more years to reach ideal density.  

With its unique, patented Uniclic installation method, Simply Bamboo’s bamboo floor installs even faster.  With no glue or nails, it’s the safe, emissions free way to put your floor down.  

Meanwhile, although it’s fast-growing and goes down quick, because bamboo is selectively harvested (not clear cut) and a grass, not a tree, bamboo forests have and will be around for thousands of years.  

Likewise your bamboo floor, the grass that’s harder than a hardwood, will be giving you a lifetime of enjoyment.  Order free samples from Simply Bamboo today to see for yourself.

Stop Cold Feet With Bamboo Flooring

21 January, 2016

Simply Bamboo Bamboo Floor keeps your house warm in the winter, cool in the summer due to bamboo’s unique ability to remain calm under atmospheric pressure.  Tile floors can freeze your toes, while carpet will keep more than your feet warm: it’ll keep dust, dirt and other allergy causing particles.   For comfort, health and more than a little bit of stunning beauty, check out our huge range of bamboo floorings and order free samples today.
