Description
With a beautifully blended assortment of colors, Acacia hardwood flooring is a tasteful choice that exudes sophistication; all while sporting a surprisingly reasonable price tag. It’s no wonder why Acacia wood flooring is one of the most popular choices for homes! Acacia’s medium to dark brown heartwood is tinged with vibrant reddish-orange and accented with light yellows. One thing to keep in mind, however, is that Acacia is essentially a bush, as opposed to a tree, and does not grow very tall. Because of this, the length structure on the Acacia flooring planks max out at 3’ to 4’ in length.
