It does not catch fire easily, making it a preferred material in the kitchen. It also has a lower expansion rate than other species, making it suitable for high-moisture areas in the home.
Merbau, although durable, is workable and easily cut to fit your kitchen layout. Whatever look you want for your kitchen space, Merbau can deliver, as it ranges from reddish-brown to brown. It retains its colour for a long time.
