Walnut flooring is well know for its durability and is highly regarded as a solid investment which will stand the test of time.
Walnut is a hardwood that is incredibly durable, due to its hard and dense makeup. This makes it a great choice for anyone wanting to invest in hardwood flooring that will last for years to come.
It is not just its durability that lends to the popularity of walnut for those looking for hardwood flooring though. Walnut is a dark wood, with the most common shade being a deep, dark brown, with a tendency to purple, although the sapwood is more of a creamy white in colour. The natural lines, rings and knots sometimes found through the graining of the wood add an interesting, unique element to your floor. Walnut flooring may undergo some natural changes over time, with the colour starting to lighten slightly over the years, adding further character to your investment. Walnut flooring is easy to maintain, meaning you won’t struggle to keep your floor looking as attractive as it was when you first bought it. Walnut tends to be resistant to water damage and mould, as well as insects which can harm the wood. Another benefit offered by walnut flooring is that it can be laid in many different styles & patterns from Herringbone to wide planks and everything in between.
