If you’re looking for an elegant hardwood with a classic look, cherry is the perfect option! Cherry adds a warm finish to any room and has an attractive red hue with dark brown streaks that darken slightly with age. The experts at Floor Coverings International Burlington ON outline what you need to know about cherry hardwood below!
About Cherry Hardwood Flooring
Cherry is available in four varieties: Brazilian, Asian, Bolivian, and American. These types of cherry flooring vary in terms of color, grain pattern, hardness, and other factors. Brazilian cherry is a popular choice today and has an open grain that looks similar to oak, but is twice as hard. Some other species, like American cherry, are on the softer end of the Janka hardness scale. Our expert design associates can talk with you to help you select the best cherry species for your particular flooring project.
This wide range of cherry flooring can meet the demands of almost any modern environment; we even have options in laminate that look just like cherry hardwood. When it comes to installation, cherry has closed pores, making it slightly more challenging to finish. So if you choose a cherry floor that is not prefinished, it’s important that a qualified installation team applies the finish evenly to achieve that perfect look. Our flooring experts will be happy to take these tasks on for you!
