TRANSFORM YOUR HOME WITH THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF AUSTRALIAN HARDWOOD FLOORING
Just like our majestic countryside, Australian hardwood timber floors are durable, rich in colour and breathtakingly beautiful… It’s easy to see why Australian hardwood timber is such a popular choice.
Stepping into a room with a grand sweep of Australian hardwood timber flooring underfoot is luxurious – a premium choice for your floors, which instantly brings a warmth of feeling. It is also the perfect canvas from which to design your home: Whilst it is beautiful in its own right, timber floors also hold a neutrality upon which you can create whatever look you desire for your home.
We know how precious this natural resource is, which is why we take great care to ensure all of our timber is sourced from sustainable forestry. It’s important to us to maintain harmony and ensure there is a balance between the needs of our customers and the needs of the environment.

Should You Gloss Australian Hardwood?
The floorboard finish on our Australian timber is of the ultimate importance. It will either enhance the wood, or take away from its beauty. Lifewood have committed years to finding the very best product which will ensure the finish will only perfectly enrich your hardwood floors. Australian hardwoods need a different finish to oak or bamboo flooring, because their colours and grains are so incredible.
To make the colour and grain pop Lifewood has worked closely with European coating manufacturers to develop a coating system. This needs attention paid to the chemistry of the coating and the gloss level: the coating must not look cloudy and the finished gloss level must not be too reflective. If it is too reflective we can lose the overall colour of the timber as it reflects too much environmental light on the surface therefore not showcasing the colour of the timber in the room. On the other hand, if we use flat or no gloss finishes we lose the vibrant colours of the timber, because matte finishes make the coating cloudy. We have refined the gloss and coating clarity to bring out the best in our gorgeous Australian timbers.
Premium quality coatings are used in 10 layers that do not make the coating appear cloudy or opaque. We finish our boards with both Satin and Semi-gloss, and oil finishes that are scratch resistant and hard wearing. They are also non-yellowing, so your floor will look beautiful for life, and help protect the floorboard from damage and water.
The result is balance between clarity of colour and reflectiveness, which gives a feeling that this timber is a showcase not to be ignored. It is silky to touch and walk on, and. As it enhances all the wonderful timber tones, is warm and inviting as you walk into your home
