Engineered Acacia Flooring

Acacia wood flooring is the perfect surface for any home where style and functionality is key. Considered to be one of the most exotic hardwood trees, its distinctive style is not just used in flooring, but also for constructing high-quality furniture such as cabinets and tables.

Engineered flooring is the perfect format for acacia as its composition helps to boost the existing strength of the species. Plywood and high-density fibreboard (HDF) fibres are compressed together under intense heat and pressure to form a layered core. This criss-cross structure allows the wood to remain stable and resistant to moisture and heat.

Advantages of engineered acacia flooring

Acacia’s main benefit is that it is thought to be one of the sturdiest trees in the world – perfect for coping with heavy footfall. Engineered flooring is ideal for acacia as its composition helps to boost the existing strength of the species. 

Engineered wood is a common alternative to solid hardwood with several benefits. Plywood and high-density fibreboard (HDF) fibres are compressed together under intense heat and pressure to form a layered core. This criss-cross structure allows the wood to remain stable and resistant to moisture and heat.

This multi-layer base also helps to stop any buckling, particularly when significant temperature fluctuations occur around the home. Temperature can cause other types of flooring to swell and contract, which can often mean the material becomes less stable and more susceptible to breaking in the future. However, engineered flooring can adapt to these temperature changes due to its non-uniform structure.

Another advantage of engineered acacia flooring is the ease of installation – you can easily install it yourself, saving money on labour costs. 

Where to use acacia wood flooring

Engineered acacia flooring is extremely versatile and looks great in many areas of the home. As it's a fairly dark wood, it often looks best in kitchens and bedrooms, and due to being extremely hard-wearing, it's also very well-suited to high-traffic areas like hallways.

Engineered acacia flooring vs. solid acacia flooring

Acacia flooring is available in both solid and engineered varieties, each with their own benefits.

Engineered wood flooring has a distinct advantage in being very resistant to temperature and moisture changes, making it particularly suitable for rooms of the house that are prone to these. It's also ideal for underfloor heating, which solid wood certainly isn't suitable for.

Solid acacia has the benefit of being incredibly durable – it's one of the hardest woods commonly used in flooring, meaning a well-installed solid wood floor in a suitable location can last a lifetime with proper care. If any damage occurs – which is rare due to the hardness of the wood – it can be sanded down and refinished more often than engineered flooring.
