Acacia Hardwood Flooring
Not everyone is familiar with acacia wood flooring, which helps make this very accessible exotic such a find. Considered one of the most popular and versatile of all exotic species, acacia engineered wood flooring has the perfect mix of high hardness rating and a low moisture content, making it both durable and less likely to succumb to a home’s seasonal, changing climate.
Why Acacia Wood Floors?
When it comes to appearance, few hardwood species can compete with acacia wood flooring’s unique, swirling grain and natural luster. The preferred hardwood of kings and artisans, this historic exotic hardwood has been used to create things of beauty and majesty as far back as Biblical times, including the Ark of the Covenant. With a ranking high on the Janka hardness scale, the durability and stability of acacia hardwood flooring proves a smart and lasting investment in a home or office space.
As strong as it is stunning, acacia prefinished hardwood holds its own in high traffic areas without losing its patina or character, especially with a hand scraped, distressed or wire brushed surface that can help scratches and wear blend in. Despite an organically high-end appearance, acacia is known to be a great low maintenance choice for busy households.
Responsible consumers are also drawn to acacia for its abundant supply, making acacia flooring is a more sustainable exotic alternative to endangered rainforest hardwoods, such as mahogany, ipe or Brazilian cherry. Easy to maintain and eco-friendly, acacia engineered hardwood is a unique, stylish and functional wood flooring choice.
