The best rooms for Tajibo Wood Flooring
Tajibo will lighten and experience tonal changes slowly and naturally throughout the passing of time as it oxidizes to your environment, meaning your project will hold nature in it throughout its entirety. Due to a 6mm wear layer, the boards and block can be sanded when necessary, so you can return the wood to its ‘just bought’ feeling for decade and beyond.
As a result of this time denying construction, Birnham is well at home in any space looking to pack to natural tones and character – be it for a cosy lounge area, or a bustling pub floor this exotic wood will feel perfect in place.
