    Hi I know that the joist centers should be 400mm, but due to a bit of bad planning mine are going to be around 550mm.

    In your experience will this be unacceptably bouncy?

    I could double up inbetween the joists giving me around 365mm centers or would this be overkill?

    Thanks

    I always use 500mm, with 32mm thick boards. No problems with bounce.
