Homeowners in the greater East Bay, Pleasanton, San Ramon areas love hardwood flooring because it is durable and adds an elegant and classic look to any home. With so many different species of hardwood out there, it can be hard to select the perfect one for your home. Walnut is a popular hardwood choice because it goes well with most home décor and has a beautiful coloring that works great in any room. If you’re interested in installing hardwood in your home, read below to learn more about the different looks and benefits from the experts at Floor Coverings International East Bay!
Walnut is known for its intricate grain patterns and rich color. If you’re looking for a hardwood with a wider grain variety, then walnut is a great option! Its coloring ranges from creamy white to a dark chocolate brown. However, walnut does take stain very well and can be further customized for the look you’re going for. Pick from different board widths, textures, and sheens to truly create the flooring of your dreams!
Homeowners can pick between Brazilian and American walnut, which vary in durability. Brazilian walnut is much more durable and will hold up better to dings and scratches that occur. American walnut will feel softer under foot and is great for areas that get a little less foot traffic. Walnut’s color does fade over time, but it can be sanded and refinished to keep it looking like new.
