Timber has the added bonus of being hypo–allergenic: It does not trap dirt, pollen and other allergens making it the ideal choice for asthma and allergy sufferers. This is a great advantage particularly when you consider that one square of carpet can contain up to 100,000 dust mites. House dust is removed by simply vacuuming. After years of wear and tear timber floors are easy to renew by sanding and refinishing – extending the value of the investment.

Timber is also child friendly. It provides a smooth, even surface with no sharp edges or grooves on which children might hurt themselves. It also provides a warmer option for bare feet compared with the coldness of tiled or stone flooring products.

Many new home buyers are combining timber with other flooring choices like tiles or carpets. Carpets in bedrooms and timber in living rooms is a popular combination. Timber and tiles is also an option if you want a carpet free home. Timber never dates and comes in a whole range of shades.

If you love a natural looking floor but are after something with added flair consider the elegance of bamboo. Like timber, bamboo is highly versatile. Its strength, durability, and resistance to insects and moisture is certainly making it an increasingly popular flooring choice for Sydney homes. The Janka hardness test which measures the resistance of wood to wear and denting rates strand woven bamboo above the toughest of Australian hardwoods.

Bamboo is a fast growing plant that readily renews itself as well as taking in greenhouse gases and produces more oxygen than most other trees, making bamboo flooring an eco–friendly option. Its hard service creates a solid sound barrier and its natural insulation properties keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. Bamboo is available in a variety of colours and suits a diverse range of interiors.

For quality and stylish flooring, Di Lorenzo has something to suit every household. Timber and bamboo are versatile, timeless and natural choices that have enormous practical as well as aesthetic appeal.
