Technical species specifications for Cherry Hardwood Flooring from Fantastic Floor – Discount Exotic and Domestic Hardwood Flooring, Prefinished Solid Flooring, Unfinished Solid Flooring and Engineered Flooring.
Description
Cherry wood is a North American wood with a distinctive reddish brown coloring that can vary from a very light to very dark shade, making it decoratively versatile. Cherry floors, much like other domestic species such as Maple and Oak, invoke a sense of tradition and distinction. This inherent beauty is a one of many reasons why Cherry wood is a frequent choice of fine furniture designers and architects alike. Among the softer hardwoods, a harder wood might make a better choice in a high traffic environment; however, Cherry hardwood is rated as very resistant to decay and dimensionally stable. Combined with proper maintenance, this ensures a long life for your Cherry hardwood floor.
