Benefits of Walnut Hardwood

One of the biggest benefits of walnut hardwood is the warm aesthetic it offers and natural variations and textures– all the elements that make hardwood floorings so desirable! There are a lot of wood-look flooring options available these days, and while they look like the real thing, it’s difficult to capture the details and true feel of hardwood.

Hardwood floors are an investment that can last through the years. With just a bit of effort to maintain, hardwood floors can last for decades and even add value to your home if you plan on selling it in the future. So while they may be more costly initially to purchase and install, hardwood floors are an addition to your home that can last a lifetime. To help keep these floors looking great through the years, correctly seal and finish them to protect against damage. They can also be refinished to look like new when scuff marks or scratches occur.

Different Varieties of Walnut

There are plenty of different varieties of walnut hardwood to choose from. There’s dark black walnut, Asian, Brazilian, and American varieties which are all slightly different in texture and color. Brazilian varieties tend to be harder than American, and this added durability helps them be more resistant to dents and scratches that happen in high-traffic areas. American varieties are softer, which can feel nicer to walk on but may not be the right choice for a high-traffic area.
