Walnut hardwood flooring is an attractive and durable product that can upgrade the look of your home and fit well with many decorating styles. Walnut floors have a large color range and even though it’s one of the softer species of domestic hardwood floors, its natural coloring tends to hide dents and scratches, particularly when it has a more matte sheen.Let’s take a look of the advantages of walnut flooring.
Firstly, there are many styles and walnut wood variations to choose from. You can choose from strip (most popular), plank (widest segments) and parquet (square panels that are used to create a geometric pattern on your floor). As for the wood type, some of your options include dark black walnut flooring, Asian, Brazilian, and American walnut. I will cover the top two a little later in this article so stay tuned for that.
Secondly,they add value to your home. Hardwood flooring is an attractive feature to prospective home-buyers. For this reason, walnut wood flooring tends to increase the value of a home. Provided you look after them, you get a better return on investment when you choose hardwood flooring over carpeting or laminate flooring. This alone is often enough to convince many people to get this type of hardwood.
Thirdly,a solid hardwood walnut floor is fairly easy to maintain. Despite what some people may believe, hardwood flooring is actually easy to care for provided you put a little time and effort into it. For example, with proper care, your walnut floors could last for decades whereas carpeting is unlikely to last ten years without needing replacement. The same applies to a teak floor. It is just important to never neglect them, that’s all.
