Merbau flooring can be best described as an elegant yet durable choice that provides a unique special touch via mineral deposits on the surface adding to it's overall charm.
Merbau is one of the hardest and most durable types of hardwood available today, making it very popular for those looking to fit hardwood flooring in their home. It’s not just flooring though – due to its incredible durability, merbau is also often used for decking, staircases, furniture and a number of other functions. It is estimated that merbau is around 30% harder than oak.
The colours found in merbau wood flooring tend to vary from an orangey-brown to a darker reddish-brown. Merbau wood can also often be found with tiny mineral deposits on the surface, which give your flooring the beautiful appearance of having slight golden threads interspersed in the grain of the wood, which can vary from straight to wavy or sometimes even interlocked. These golden flecks of colour may fade and become more subtle as the years pass and the wood matures however. Merbau flooring is incredibly stable and resistant to moisture and humidity, making it the perfect choice for those looking for a species of hardwood to have fitted in their either kitchen or bathroom. Merbau hardwood flooring would look equally as attractive paired with any number of furnishing styles, but due to its rich colour, looks especially good with more traditional styled interiors.
