About Walnut Hardwood
Walnut is known for its dark color, ranging from rich brown to brown-purple hues. The dark swirls add character to the floor. Our customers find that the main benefits of walnut floors are their durability, their aesthetic appeal, and their warmth. Walnut hardwood typically comes from America or Brazil. Our Brazilian walnut tends to be harder than American walnut, making it a more durable option that is more resistant to dents and scratches. On the other side, the softer American walnut flooring feels more comfortable underfoot. Unlike most hardwoods, walnut is not UV stable and will become lighter over the years.
