exotic wood and its benefits

Does hearing the words "exotic wood" make you want to remodel? Do you have old wood flooring that you're looking to replace and wonder what exciting new options are on the market today?

If the answer is yes, consider sourcing some exotic wood for your home project.

We'll explore the many benefits of using exotic wood for your next project so you can get the most out of the lumber you choose.

About Exotic Wood

South America, Africa, and Asia are home to many kinds of exotic woods.

A large part of what makes them unique is their color. From deep oranges to dark red hues and rich, velvety brown shades, there is an exotic wood for every taste.

In addition to being attractive and aesthetically pleasing, most exotic woods also feature their special characteristics and unique properties, which offer many benefits.

Below, we'll get into a few of them.


For one, exotic woods are extremely durable. In addition to being able to last upwards of 100 years (if you care for them properly), their color is also long-lasting.

Easy to Maintain

If you purchase the right kind of exotic wood, like Jatoba lumber , you won't have to do a lot to maintain its unique look and beauty. All you'll need to do is sweep or vacuum it and then rub it down with a cleaning solution, which your wood source can recommend to you.

Nature's Insulation

Wood flooring is warmer than other types of flooring, such as laminate, which often feels cold to bare feet. If you're looking to move away from carpeting and don't want to have cold feet early in the morning, consider exotic hardwood flooring .

Allergen Free

Carpet holds onto things, such as dust and dander. As a result, it can become a breeding ground for allergens. On hardwood flooring? They don't stand a chance.

Add Value to Your Home

Since exotic wood flooring is durable, easy to care for, and can last for years and years, it can add value to any home. If you're thinking about selling your home and had dirty, worn out carpets, you may need to remove or replace them before the sale.

With hardwood flooring, you don't have to worry about anything.

In addition to flooring, exotic wood is great for cabinetry, coffee tables, and other fine furniture pieces. The combination of durability plus elegance is a win-win.
