Real hardwood floors are now very popular in a lot of homes, and work really well in traditional, as well as modern houses. There are a range of hardwood floors to choose from and Kempas flooring is an excellent choice. It is a very hard wood, heavy, with a dark, rich colour, having unique patterns that would make any room look luxurious and quite beautiful.
The Kempas tree is found in Indonesia, Malaysia and the heartwood of the tree has a slight orange colour and is usually the part used for flooring (it darkens over time and becomes a warm, red/brown colour), whilst the sapwood is pale and yellow in colour.
Kempas floors are very hardwearing (hardness rating of 1710ibf) and resist decay and friction very well; floors look as good as new for years to come. The wood does not smell strange and dries very easily, is harder than Maple, Red Oak and about 80% as hard as mahogany. Sanding this floor will provide a great finish. To maintain the beauty of Kempas floors, they should be oiled to prevent static and attract moisture.
