Oak is the most popular hardwood on the market today. It’s sturdy and reliable. However, some Hoosiers opt for flooring that makes a bold statement. Walnut hardwood is a great option for anyone looking for uniquely gorgeous floors. At Floor Coverings International of Carmel, we help Carmel families find the perfect hardwood for their homes. Here is some more information about walnut.
Deep, Rich Brown
Walnut is prized for its chocolate-brown hue. Depending on the tree, each piece is light tan to medium brown with wavy grain lines and distinctive knots. Walnut adds timeless warmth to any room. It feels natural and authentic.
If you are searching for a versatile hardwood, look no further. Walnut comes in a wide array of colors, sizes, and finishes. We carry solid and engineered walnut, plank and strip walnut, and even laminate varieties.
One of the biggest advantages of walnut is its easy maintenance. Simply keep your hardwood free from dirt and debris by regularly sweeping and vacuuming. With proper maintenance, walnut hardwood floors can last for generations.
American or black walnut is a softer hardwood, with a Janka hardness rating of 1,010. This means that it is not well suited for high traffic areas of the home. For large, busy families and pet owners, Brazilian walnut might be a better option for you. This exotic hardwood has a Janka rating of 3,680, and it has many of the same aesthetic qualities as American walnut.
