For a timeless, classic floorboard, Karri timber is what you need. Offset in the photo above against the white furniture, the warm Karri colours, really shine. These floorboards provide a wonderful elegance to a home. The Karri floorboards in this house, are not only a feature themselves but also beautifully compliment and highlight the furniture and features of this house. A gloss finish was used to coat the floorboards in the pictures.

Karri Timber is another beautiful Western Australian wood that will be an outstanding feature in your home. As with all timbers, different grades will have differing amounts of features such as insect holes, gum veins etc. Make sure you view the different grades to get a full understanding of the options you have. Due to it being a natural product, the colour will vary between timber floorboard batches. Like the features, ensure you are aware of the colour spectrum of your timber.
