|Though teak is a beautiful wood and resistant to pests, it’s a rainforest tree and should be reconsidered as a flooring, even as a teak engineered flooring option. There are several species of teak, so shop around if you are set on a teak floor. Some people consider it a hardwood flooring, but it actually depends on which teak you choose as to its hardness.|
When most people think of teak wood they think of outdoor furniture. Teak has a rich, warm color, and highly functional. But teak is also used inside homes, for furniture and flooring, too. “Basic” softer than you would think (1155 on the Janka Hardness scale, softer than heart pine), based on its popularity, but it’s durable enough, and there are more exotic teak that is much harder.
