‘Floorbamboo’ flooring introduced to UK

Floorbamboo introduced to the UK

Paolo.Interiors – the specialist architectural materials consultancy have introduced Floorbamboo® to the UK, as part of their ongoing search for new and innovative materials. Celebrated for its enduring and sustainable properties, bamboo flooring is an increasingly popular choice for sustainability-conscious projects and clients.


The ancient bamboo plant, often referred to as ‘nature’s steel’, is a symbol of strength and durability. An eco-sustainable choice, the bamboo plant can grow up to one meter a day and entirely regenerates after 5 years – preventing soil erosion and absorbing CO2 four times faster than forests. In addition, it produces 35% more oxygen.


‘Floorbamboo’ is a result of research and technology to enhance and celebrate the qualities of bamboo by developing aesthetic, sustainable, affordable and durable flooring and wall cladding solutions.


The bamboo canes are treated, prepared and carefully hand-finished in China then transported to Italy for quality control and certification to meet European standards. The bamboo canes are originally cultivated along river basins in the hill regions, where the soil is most fertile. Each piece is carefully selected and harvested once it reaches 5-6 years of age and is taken through a treatment of steaming and drying to improve stability. Finally, the flooring is treated, coloured and finished to offer a wide range of options to meet most design requirements. The range includes 2 finishes (varnished and natural/oiled) and a wide range of sizes and colors, including honey, black, stained white, black and grey.


This process ensures the durability of ‘Floorbamboo’, creating a finished flooring that is up to 3 times harder than normal wood flooring and suitable for indoor/outdoor residential use, as well as commercial projects with high traffic. With the number of oak forests reducing, and the time required for their regeneration, bamboo is certainly the material of choice for the future.
