Word of the innovation behind Mafi timber gains momentum as the Australian design market continues to develop into something very exciting.
March 13th, 2014
Mafi have been installing natural wide-plank timber floorboards in bathrooms for more than 30 years. The increasing demand in Australia for quality timber finishing’s in bathrooms and wet rooms is working in the favour of Mafi, who not only offer timber that will not warp or cup, but a world wide quality assurance to go with it.
While timber has a notorious reputation when it comes to wet areas, Mafi is defying popular belief as it continues to enhance and create beautiful, luxurious bathrooms throughout the world, and more recently around Australia.
The Mafi philosophy surrounds an all-natural approach to sourcing, manufacturing and treating wood without the use of chemicals or lacquers. The naturally oiled surface is superior, allowing the timber to process moisture and filter the air. A Mafi floor regulates humidity and eliminates any chance of cupping or warping. This is all due to the highly sophisticated three-layer engineered solid timber boards that are so balanced they expand and contract evenly.
The timber not only looks beautiful but it is naturally warm underfoot, a luxurious space to be in and an incredible surface to walk on barefoot. The non-slip and antistatic characteristics of this product make it the perfect floor finish for any wet area within the home. The antibacterial nature of timber also make Mafi the perfect match for bathrooms and kitchens alike.
There is no denying that this product lends itself to practical flooring solutions for the whole house. Mafi is now becoming more widely known to enhance every area of the home.
