Welcome back to Fantastic Floor Presents, the only hardwood spotlight blog series you'll ever need! Last week we highlighted the ever-popular but often overlooked Birch hardwood flooring. This week we're shining our hardwood spotlight on one of the most alluring of all the exotic hardwood flooring materials: Ipe!
Ipe is one of the most eye-catching and beautiful exotic hardwood flooring materials on the market today. The dark browns and deep reds of Ipe provide an excellent contrast to its slow, wavy grain pattern. The variety of shades of Ipe make it an incredibly visually interesting species of wood, perfect for foyers, dining rooms, kitchens, offices, or anywhere you'd like your floors to make a great first impression. Ipe is also quite versatile, despite its striking appearance. It works equally well in a sleek, modern design scheme as it does a more quaint, traditional home decor.
Beauty is only one amazing aspect of Ipe hardwood flooring; it is also the most durable hardwood you can find. Its dense cell structure makes it nearly impenetrable to insects, molds, and other forms decay. It also has a Class A fire rating, which is the same class of fire-retardant materials as steel. The Janka hardness rating of Ipe is 3,680 pounds, making it the fourth hardest wood species in the world. All these factors add up to a naturally durable and long-lasting flooring material.
If you're looking for beauty, durability, and style, look no further than Ipe hardwood flooring. Contact Fantastic Floor today at 1-888-448-9663 to learn more about this amazing exotic species. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
