Teak Wood Flooring
Teak wood flooring is suitable for a variety of applications, both indoor and outdoor. Teak in particular is valued because it requires very little maintenance and lasts decades longer than most other types of wood flooring. The natural oil substance that covers teak wood acts as a preservative, lasting more than 100 years when left untreated.
Teak floors can be installed over concrete or directly on floorboards. Teak wood flooring is among the more expensive options on the market today, but because of its durability and versatility, the cost is typically recouped over time.

Teak wood flooring blends nicely with most modern decor styles while providing a solid, clean look that is rarely copied. This natural look reflects the busy lifestyles of many professionals who choose teak over glossy polished concrete or porcelain. Whether you’re looking for simple elegance or a more sophisticated look, look for teak wood flooring that is both elegant and understated.
In terms of durability, lustre, and natural beauty, teak wood floors are virtually indistinguishable from natural concrete, stone, and grass. They’re also virtually maintenance-free, unlike those materials. As a result, you won’t have to use a concrete pad (which can get really messy quickly) or adjust when your feet touch the edge of the material.
Types of Teak Wood
Burma / Burmese teak wood: Known as Burma teak, it grows natively in Myanmar or Burma and takes over 50 years to mature. They come in golden-tone teak wood and possess an elegant wood grain.
They contain teak-tree oil and are one of the best types of teak wood. Burma Teak Wood is known for being one of Burma’s most durable and expensive woods.
Indian teak: The wood comes from an old-growth forest and has properties similar to Burmese wood. The international market does not have enough Indian teak wood because it is in great demand within the country. For first quality, the pricing is very similar to Burma Teak.
Thailand teak: Since teak wood originates from one of the best growth environments and environments for teak wood trees, this wood is considered superior in quality to Burmese wood. Although they are not easily available in international markets, Thai teak wood is renowned for its strength and quality.
Indonesian teak: This teak wood, also referred to as Asian teak, grows for over 30 years. Growing conditions are ideal in this region, so the quality of the plants is excellent. They’re light brown in colour with a grey tint, it has wider wood grains, average oil content, and more sound knots.
African teak: Planting this wood in Africa takes between 15 and 25 years. When compared to the previous types, this type has less oil content, so it’s slightly less durable and stable. Its colour is light brown with some cream sapwood. In addition, it has wood grain patterns and a wide range of sound effects.
South American teak: The quality of this product is similar to that of African grade, and there is still a slight confusion regarding the difference between the two types today.

Teak wood Areas of suitability
Teak wood flooring for bathrooms: If you prefer to keep your bathrooms stone-clean, look for flooring that is made from teak wood. This is a particularly nice option if your bathroom has walls that have suffered natural degradation over time. The grain of the wood adds character and will reflect the lighting in the room. Structural integrity is also assured because, unlike other hardwoods, teak cannot warp or rot.
Teak wood flooring for kitchen: It seems counter-intuitive, but a nice wood floor will give your kitchen a new look and make it feel more inviting. Even if you are not a fan of teak, there are reasons why it is a beautiful option. By design, teak absorbs stains and moisture well, so it is much better at retaining its original shine than concrete or tile. Also, when you install a teak floor, you will not have to worry about pine needles being pulled out of your ceiling or flooring gaskets tearing out from underneath the concrete.
Teak wood flooring for bedrooms: Bedrooms are where it’s at, and where you want to spend your time improving not only your living space but also your overall comfort level. Teak wood is the smart choice for both giving your home that multi-layered feel and adding a classic wood feel to the exterior of your home.
Bedrooms that have been re-imagined with teak wood floors offer a warm, inviting feel that can only be created through the use of beautiful furniture and linens from sustainable sources.
Teak wood flooring for living rooms: Homeowners love using teak in living and dining rooms because the unique features and style stand out as artistic qualities while still maintaining comfort. Teak is very easy to care for. It does not require brushing or sealing like some other wood floors. Plus, it has antimicrobial properties that make it different from other wood floors.
Teak wood flooring for commercial areas: Teak flooring is a highly recommended option for your home and commercial spaces. With added natural oils that repel mould and a natural UV coating to prevent fading, your wood will stay beautiful for years to come.
Teak flooring is durable enough to withstand any commercial environment and it’s not prone to cracking, splitting, or warping unlike some other types of flooring materials.
