In this project we used BAMBOO FLOORING, popular with home owners and architects alike. This type of flooring is valued for its sustainability, durability and stylish appearance. Its exceptional hardness and density make it an excellent flooring choice, while having the added benefit of being better for the environment too.

For the heating option in this project we chose HYDRONIC HEATING. Not only is HYDRONIC HEATING a clean way to heat your home, it’s also a very efficient and cost effective form of central heating. With boiler efficiency from 80%-97% it results in a much lower running cost compared to other forms of central heating. HYDRONIC HEATING cost savings of 20% will be made on houses with 2.7m ceilings when compared to gas ducted heating. HYDRONIC HEATING works on natural radiant heat and convection where there is no forced air circulation, meaning no dust and no allergies. Another distinct advantage of HYDRONIC HEATING is that it is silent. No noisy space heaters or wall heaters with the constant blowing of air, HYDRONIC HEATING gives your home peace and quiet.
