  • Detail

Mr. Dongpo said: it is better to eat without meat than live without bamboo. Most modern people live in high-rise buildings, and it is difficult to have a situation surrounded by bamboo forests. However, with the diversification of raw materials of flooring, bamboo flooring began to enter people's vision. Bamboo flooring has the natural texture of bamboo, which gives people a feeling of returning to nature and elegance, and brings a fresh wind to the home. Now let's share with you the shopping strategy of bamboo flooring, and teach you to choose bamboo flooring to create a refined home

classification and introduction of bamboo flooring in elegant bamboo rooms

bamboo in China mainly grows in the south of the Yangtze River Basin, and the amount of resources is very rich. Due to the special high hardness and warmth retention of bamboo, it is often better than wooden flooring at the same price. Coupled with the natural and unique texture of bamboo floor, it seems to have a refreshing effect of returning to nature after paving, which has gradually become a hot consumption in the furniture market in recent years. Now let's learn about the structure and classification of bamboo flooring

1. Structure of bamboo floor

bamboo floor is composed of four main parts. The uppermost layer is aluminum oxide wear-resistant layer, which mainly protects the surface of bamboo; The second layer is the surface layer of bamboo floor, which is pressed with raw bamboo to retain the original bamboo texture; The third base material layer is generally made of bamboo or wood broken under high pressure, low carbon and environmental protection; The bottom layer is the balance layer of the back plate, which can effectively prevent the deformation of the floor and the corrosion of cement damp

2. Classification of bamboo flooring

bamboo flooring is classified according to structure: it can be divided into solid bamboo flat pressing floor, solid bamboo side pressing floor, solid bamboo middle cross plate, bamboo wood composite floor, heavy bamboo floor, etc. The flat pressing and side pressing are different according to the selected bamboo section, and the texture will also be different

bamboo flooring is classified according to processing methods: it can be divided into natural bamboo flooring and carbonized bamboo flooring. The natural bamboo floor maintains the original color of the bamboo, and the bamboo strips of the carbonized bamboo floor should be carbonized under high temperature and high pressure to deepen the color of the bamboo slices and make the color of the bamboo slices uniform

3. Analysis of advantages and disadvantages of bamboo flooring


it is warm in winter and cool in summer. Because of its low thermal conductivity, bamboo does not produce cool and heat itself. It is especially suitable for floor and wall decoration in living rooms, bedrooms, gyms, study rooms, studios, hotels, etc; The texture is solid and wear-resistant, the color is soft and beautiful, the bamboo grain is fresh and natural, and the bamboo fragrance is pleasant; The cost performance is high, but the price is between the composite floor and the solid wood floor. The effect is very natural and the maintenance is relatively simple


the stability is insufficient, and the shrinkage and expansion of bamboo floor are smaller than that of solid wood floor; Stratification is easy to occur under the influence of sunlight and humidity; Some bamboo floors are easy to grow beetles, which affects the service life of the floor

II. Understand the material standards and choose high-quality bamboo flooring

bamboo flooring is an environmental friendly board made of natural bamboo through advanced processes. When choosing bamboo flooring, we can first understand its material standard, and then purchase it appropriately according to the actual situation of home decoration

standard 1: common sizes of bamboo flooring

bamboo flooring in the market has longer specifications and sizes. The conventional dimensions of bamboo floor mainly include 15*90*909mm, 15*96*960mm, 15*96*1850mm/1920mm, 15*190*1900mm. When shopping, you can't blindly pursue large-scale and large-scale bamboo floors. Generally speaking, the smaller the floor size, the better the deformation resistance

standard 2: the moisture content of bamboo flooring

the moisture content affects the service life of bamboo flooring. Generally, the moisture content of flooring should be controlled within 8%. However, due to the different humidity in different regions, the moisture content standard of bamboo flooring is also different, so we must pay attention to the adaptability of moisture content to the local. At present, there are many untreated and shoddy bamboo floors on the market. It is very susceptible to moisture and moisture. After installation for a period of time, the floor blackens, loses luster, shrinks and deforms. It should be carefully identified when purchasing

standard 3: wear resistance of bamboo floor

bamboo floor is qualified when its wear-resistant revolution reaches 550 revolutions. The main factor that determines the wear-resistant revolution is the coating amount of wear-resistant primer. Although the wear resistance of most bamboo floors is less than that of laminate floors up to 6000 revolutions, it is still better than solid wood floors

standard 4: formaldehyde emission of bamboo flooring

like wood flooring, the most important thing to choose bamboo flooring is to see whether its formaldehyde emission index is qualified. The formaldehyde emission limit of national standard E1 products is less than 1.5mg/l, which is an index we must know before buying

III. avoid misunderstandings analysis on the purchase of bamboo flooring

because bamboo flooring is a new type of material flooring, many consumers often do not fully understand it. In order to avoid the misunderstanding of bamboo floor purchase, we will list some common misunderstandings below

myth 1: the longer the bamboo floor is, the better

the older the bamboo is, the stronger it is. The skin of 9-year-old Phyllostachys pubescens is too thick, which will be brittle when used as a floor. However, the bamboo under 4 years is too tender, and the stability of Bamboo under 4 to 6 years is generally the best

Myth 2: the longer, the wider and the thicker the bamboo floor is, the better

the wider the floor is, the easier it is to crack and warp. It is suggested that the width of the bamboo floor should not exceed 130 mm. In terms of thickness, bamboo itself has high hardness. 15mm thick has enough bending resistance, compression resistance and impact resistance, and the foot feel is good. In order to cater to the mentality of consumers that the thicker the better, some manufacturers do not go green or yellow. Although the thickness of bamboo floor can reach 17mm and 18mm after gluing, the gluing strength is not good and it is easy to crack. This practice is unscientific

myth 3: excessive pursuit of consistent color difference of board texture

because the radius of bamboo is smaller than that of wood, it is less exposed to sunlight, and there are obvious color differences. When selecting bamboo flooring, you don't have to pursue the consistency of texture too much. Slight color difference is allowed, and the overall uniformity is good

myth 4: bamboo floors are easy to be motheaten and moldy.

bamboo is rich in sugar, starch, amino acids, protein and other nutrients, which are easy to cause moth eaten and moldy. However, this characteristic of bamboo has been fully considered in the manufacture of bamboo flooring. Bamboo flooring is a product made by high-temperature treatment. Unlike ordinary bamboo, it will not easily be eaten by insects, moldy and so on

myth 5: the seller of bamboo flooring and the paver are separated

if the seller and the paver are not the same unit, it is easy to prevaricate each other when there are problems with the flooring, causing consumers to suffer. Therefore, it is best to choose the bamboo flooring manufacturers that provide laying services
