There are several species of walnut. Domestic walnut is often called black walnut or American walnut. This type of walnut hardwood is commonly used indoors. You may also encounter Brazilian walnut (sometimes called Ipe), an exotic species that is very hard and frequently used for decking. Both are attractive and durable. For the purposes of this article, we’ll focus on the benefits of domestic walnut hardwood.
Why Choose Walnut Hardwood Flooring?
Walnut hardwood floors fit well in any type of home, whether contemporary, modern, or traditional. Walnut is available in different shades of dark wood with a smooth, swirling grain. Walnut floors stand out from the crowd in their uniqueness and style, but still add a cozy and welcoming feel to your home.
This species of hardwoods also takes stain well. So, you can get the look you desire with a smooth, even finish. And, just like any other type of hardwood flooring, walnut floors are great for people with allergies because dust, dander, and other allergens are easily cleaned up with a broom or mop.
Walnut is not the most durable species of hardwood, but it can still last for decades if properly maintained. Make sure to keep moisture away from your hardwoods as much as possible to avoid warping and damage. If your floors become scratched and worn, you can have them professionally refinished to restore their original beauty.
