With over nine years’ experience in
bamboo flooring, Lifewood’s founding
family decided to move into timber,
providing WA residents with a wide flooring
solution that is both stable and sustainable.
For three years, Lifewood has been the sole
distributor of WA walnut timber, which is
73 per cent harder than jarrah.
With the company owning its own mill in
Donnybrook, the team at Lifewood is able to
control the quality, timing and end product
of their clients’ selected flooring. It has full
control of production and installation, and
knows exactly what is being installed in the
Lifewood does not use contractors, rather
professional and skilled tradesmen staffed by
the business, and can supply and install all
the best in WA timbers while offering other
professional services like colour staining to
suit its customers’ home decor.
Lifewood itself is, in essence, a three-layered
floorboard made of premium-grade WA timber,
produced in a wider and longer form.
By cross-engineering the product, the core
and bottom layers hide the less attractive parts
of the same timber, leaving the best-looking
timber for the top. This design produces a solution
for timber that would usually be unsuitable for
premium grade flooring if it was produced as
a solid board. This minimises waste, and so allows
Lifewood to use local timbers more responsibly
and sustainably, and to create a floorboard that is
guaranteed to stay premium for a lifetime.
