Warm, inviting and resilient walnut hardwood flooring has the ability to complement just about any home decor. This luxurious species ranges in hues from caramel-like medium hues to exotic dark variations with chocolate or amber undertones. The complexity of most walnut species’ grain patterns gives this flooring a unique and variant look throughout the home. Here are the three most prized types of walnut flooring gracing countless Clearwater, Largo and Seminole homes.
Love Exotic Looks? Choose Brazilian Walnut Hardwood Flooring
If you have pets, kids or an overall active lifestyle, then you need floors that can live up to the challenge. Brazilian walnut flooring is one of the strongest hardwoods available with an incredible 3680 rating on the Janka Hardness Scale. These beautiful and typically dark mocha shaded wood planks are designed by nature to handle high foot traffic. That durability does come at a premium price, but many homeowners find investing in Brazilian walnut a worthwhile expenditure.
Go All Out with Asian Acacia Walnut
Those looking for an exotic walnut hardwood flooring that’s a bit lighter to make spaces appear larger you might opt for Asian acacia walnut. With a Janka rating of 2250, this sturdy wood is an excellent choice for those who don’t have time to go easy on flooring. Like other hardwood floors, these can be sanded and stained to create custom looks to complement any decor.
Awe-striking American Black Walnut
Homeowners who want to have an eye-catching combination of lighter grains naturally blended in with darker hues will fall in love with black walnut hardwood flooring. At 1010 on the hardness scale, it’s softer than Asian and Brazilian variations but still is an excellent choice for most homes. Often called royal walnut, this native species is widely available and doesn’t require importation, which is why it’s the most affordable walnut flooring of the three.
