NSW Blackbutt

Species:   Eucalyptus pilularis
A wonderful softly-toned canvas for all styles of home, Eastern States or NSW Blackbutt hardwood flooring makes you want to snuggle down within its warmth.  It’s light colour is perfect in contemporary homes, creating an impression of wide open space, but you’ll find it so versatile you can picture it almost anywhere.  

And your Eastern States, or NSW Blackbutt floorboards will remain looking as stunning on day one, as they will forever, with Lifewood’s revolutionary Stabilised Solid technology. Scientifically developed and embodying years of experience with timber milling, a Stabilised Solid board has a patented, engineered core, which stops the boards and floor from cupping or warping due to the reaction of moisture with the natural timber product.

The Stabilised Solid core is secured between a thick layer on top of the best quality and most beautiful looking part of the NSW Blackbutt timber, and the base, which is a whole plank of the same uninterrupted timber.  Using 100 per cent Eastern States Blackbutt timber for the whole floorboard creates balance and in harmony within the board, and incredible stability. It is also the most environmentally sustainable flooring practice in the world.

Throughout the boards construction are multiple moisture barriers, with all layers bonded together with emission-safe glue.  On the finished product, all six sides of each and every floorboard are coated in an extra moisture barrier.

Your Lifewood NSW Blackbutt floor comes with a lifetime guarantee.

Take a journey …

Renowned as a quick growing species, NSW Blackbutt (Coastal Blackbutt or Eastern States Blackbutt) has had many uses throughout it’s history, from railway sleepers and joinery, to flooring, decking and furniture. It is currently used in beautiful big expanses for the flooring in Parliament House in Canberra. It is an immensely durable, versatile and adaptable flooring choice that provides warmth and beauty in any home.

The grain and therefore texture in Blackbutt is striking and clean.  This, combined with a reliable tone showing little variation in colour, is what makes an NSW Blackbutt floor so adaptable to any style of home. It is a creamy, buttery blank canvas, on which you can illustrate your personality with furnishings, wall colour, art work and fixtures and fittings. It is one of those timber floors you will want to lay your cheek to, with its irresistible, enveloping warmth.

Lifewood also offers Eastern States Blackbutt staircases, which are a majestic compliment to Blackbutt flooring in any home.

As the name suggests, Eastern States Blackbutt comes from the Eastern Coast of Australian – principally NSW and QLD. Our sources are Australian Forestry Standard (AFS) and PEFC accredited. Lifewood uses only NSW Blackbutt, which has less variation than the New England Blackbutt.

Choose from satin or semi-gloss finishes that are scratch resistant and hard wearing, and which enhance the beautiful grain and colour of NSW Blackbutt without cloudiness or an overly-reflective high gloss.
