Fantastic Floor Presents: Acacia

Welcome back to Fantastic Floor Presents, the one and only hardwood spotlight series of its kind. Last time we shone our spotlight on the rustic reclaimed Heart Pine. This week we're taking a look at the ever-popular Acacia. Enjoy!

Acacia is one of the most popular hardwood flooring varieties in the country and around the world, and for good reason. It's strong, sophisticated, and carries a reasonable price tag. The Acacia hardwood at Fantastic Floor is a tasteful flooring choice that features a beautifully blended assortment of dark browns, light yellows, and vibrant reddish oranges. Its deep, smooth grain pattern gives the wood an alluring appeal, sure to draw the attention of any houseguest. It's also quite versatile - the combination of tones, colors, and grain pattern makes it complementary to nearly any design scheme.

But let's stop gushing over how beautiful Acacia is for a moment and discuss how tough it is. Because it's tough - really, really tough. It has a hardness rating of 1,750 pounds, which is almost twice as hard as some domestic alternatives. It also has one of the best densities you can find in a hardwood, meaning it will stand up to every day wear and tear and last longer than other species.

Fantastic Floor offers many different types of Acacia hardwood flooring, including distressed, handscraped, prefinished, and engineered. View more pictures of our beautiful products on our Acacia Hardwood Flooring Pinterest page, or read more about the species at
