Walnut hardwood floors are a stunning option for any Peachtree City, Fayetteville, McDonough home. It is affordable, durable, and versatile. Here are some of the benefits that Floor Coverings International Peachtree City has seen when it comes to walnut hardwood flooring.

Dark and Lustrous Walnut Floors

Walnut is known for its deep color, defined graining, and timeless beauty. It is softer than oak or maple, but because its dark color runs all the way through the wood, it keeps its good looks for decades. It makes an excellent choice for libraries, offices, or media rooms with low foot traffic.  Also, white or light beige furniture will pop against its dark surface.

American or Brazilian both Shine in Your Home

You will find walnut that has been harvested in the United States or imported from Brazil. The American Walnut tends to be less expensive than Brazilian as it often has wider graining and it is softer. Brazil walnut is cut from old growth trees and features dense graining and darker tones.  There are a wide variety of color options, too, ranging from near-black to deep red-browns to an almost blonde appearance.

Long-Lasting and Scratch Resistant

One of the many benefits of walnut hardwood flooring is that it can last for 20 to 40 years or even longer when you properly care for it. Its dark color hides most surface scratches. If you use a matte finish, it will look virtually the same after 10 years of foot traffic compared to the day that it is installed.

Contemporary Styling that Stays Current for Years

Have you noticed that decor trends often include dark floors? The walnut floors will give you that contemporary appearance. If you prefer a lighter floor, think about how a stunning border in walnut could create a whole new look for your living room. Its dark colors also work well with the vibrant colors of many area rugs and oriental carpets.
