What’s good about this timber

Classic local WA timber that is easily accessible

As a local timber Jarrah is very well priced

The Brown Red tones of jarrah add warmth to a room particularly where the rest of the décor is predominantly white

What to be wary of with this timber

As a darker floor, this timber can make small areas feel a little closed in. It works best in large open spaces

Newer jarrah from regrowth plantations tends to be overall lighter than old growth jarrah used in older homes so it is important to consider this if extending an home that already has older jarrah timber.

Colour presentation of the timber will change significantly between a solvent and waterborne coating systems
