Timber Business in Kenya
Timber is classified into two softwood timber and hardwood timber.
Softwood timber like pine, cypress and bamboo wood are popular materials in the creation of light furniture and simple interior fittings. They are cheaper in cost than other timber types and grow much quicker. Softwoods tend to be lighter in color. Their application in color schemes that tend toward light browns and oranges and biege’s will be harmonious.
Hardwood timber is elegant and durable. It is available in plenty on the African continent, though in areas where deforestation has occurred, one has to resort to importation of the same. That notwithstanding, a Kenyan interior designer has several options available to them with regard to choice of hardwood fittings.
