waukesha hardwood flooring walnutAt Floor Coverings International Waukesha, we help families in the greater Waukesha, Brookfield, Milwaukee area find their dream hardwood floors. One of the benefits of hardwood is its great variety and versatility. It comes in soft beiges and deep maroons. It can be wide or thin, smooth or rough, glossy or matte. For a rich, elegant hardwood option, many Waukehsa homeowners choose walnut.

Simply Gorgeous

Walnut is prized for its straight, fine graining and deep chocolate hue. Its authentic look and feel adds timeless warmth to any space. With slight color variation from board to board, this hardwood option is simple and straightforward. For a dark, natural hardwood, walnut may be the best choice with you.

Strength and Durability

With a Janka hardness rating of 1,010, walnut is a softer hardwood. For families with young children and pets, we suggest Brazilian walnut. This exotic cousin of American walnut is more than three times as strong, with a rating of 3,680. It’s also very similar in terms of overall aesthetics. We highly recommend it for high traffic parts of the home, such as hallways, living rooms, and kitchens.

Sustainability

Locally grown and harvested, walnut is a great option for environmentally conscious Waukeshans. Because it’s native to North American forests, walnut supports American wood growers and cuts down on the pollution from transporting wood over seas.
