Black Walnut Flooring

Categorized: Uncategorized | 2 comments

Black walnut flooring is considered by many to be a beautiful and elegant choice for use in one’s home. There are several things one must consider before choosing to install this type of flooring. First of all, cost must be taken into consideration. It does little or no good to find the perfect flooring only to discover it is not affordable. After a budget has been determined, a person should consider the floor’s appearance, and how much traffic it will experience.

Purple black, chocolate, deep brown, and cream color are all choices that one can select from when buying walnut wood flooring. Grains in this type of flooring are usually straight, but can also be cut in complicated and sophisticated swirls. Black walnut flooring will age, just as any other wood, at which point the the color will become deeper and more rustic, giving it a more attractive appearance. When buying this type of flooring, one should look for a grain and color that compliments the rest of the room. As the color is already so rich and deep it is  currently the trend to keep the wood its natural state, rather than change its color.

Walnut is a one of the softest of the hardwoods, and as such, is typically easier to work with. On the other hand, this means it will also be more susceptible scratches and dents. The best way to protect hardwood flooring made from walnut wood is to protect it with a natural polyurethane stain. Rugs can also be laid in highly occupied areas. Liquid and sunlight can also damage this type of flooring, so one must consider how he or she will protect it from such elements.

The cost of flooring made from walnut wood can vary a lot depending on its size, color, and where it is purchased.  Homerwood and Anderson are companies well known for supplying black walnut flooring and these brands can be found at most home improvement, or home and garden stores.  Another idea one may wish to consider is the purchase of antique hardwood flooring.  This is typically made form reclaimed wood taken from older buildings that are in poor repair, and is then recycled and offered for sale to the public.

Also consider oak flooring.
