Choosing what kind of flooring your home has in it can be a difficult choice. If you’re sick of tile or wall to wall carpet, then it could be time to make a change. The only question is, will you have bamboo, hardwood flooring, or laminate? And if you choose hardwood, what species of wood will you have? Let’s find out.
You probably only think about maple when you’re trying to decide what syrup you would like on your pancakes. All the same, maple is a popular choice for hardwood floors. The grain pattern is extremely subtle, allowing it to pair well with almost any space that you want to add it to; even in high-traffic areas. That’s how you know how durable maple really is.
Rosewood also has a striking grain pattern. One of the most distinctive features of rosewood is that you can have it come in different colors as drastically far apart as yellow and purple. Although rosewood has been used for furniture building for centuries, it has only just recently become a popular material for flooring in homes across the country.
When you are worried about the durability of your new hardwood floors, then the choice is clear. In this case, you should pick walnut. That’s because it is one of the hardest woods on the Janka scale and can last no matter how much damage it takes.
Although cherry wood used for hardwood flooring isn’t as strong as Brazilian cherry, that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth the investment. It can make any room more elegant, but the downside is that it is somewhat softer and can scratch more easily. You’ll need to stay on top of the refinishing process.
