Your first port of call

Decisions, decisions…  Come into our award-winning timber flooring Perth showroom, kick off your shoes, and absorb the look and feel of our hardwood floorboards.

Let our flooring design consultants help you with all your questions to decide what is right for you. Take home samples to test, or visit homes with completed Lifewood floors, so you can see the product on a large scale.  We can estimate costs on the area you’d like installed with timber flooring. 

Then, once you’ve decided on the boards which suit your home and lifestyle, and whether you’d also like stairs in the timber, we will do an in-home, exact and precise measure, to quote. Take as long as you need, or we can turn this part of the process around immediately for you if that is your preference.

You place your order, and can expect a minimal lead time of two to three weeks within Western Australia before your beautiful hardwood floor is completed.
