Top Deck Kempas Australian Engineered Hardwood

Our customer selected the Kempas engineered hardwood flooring to match in with their existing stairs.

Kempas isn’t on the radar screens of most homeowners looking to buy floors, Kempas is a rather solid type of hardwood originating from Indonesia and Malaysia that is often used for flooring. Its botanical name is Koompassia malaccensis.

Kempas begins as a reddish- or pinkish-brown and, with finishing, darkens to a deeper red-brown. From a distance, finished kempas looks almost like certain types of ordinary hardwoods, even red oak. Yet upon closer examination, it does prove to have an attractive coarse-grained look with a medium interlocking grain.
