Premium walnut is a formal grade wood flooring, with a natural elegance, minimal knot content and grain patterns. The heartwood can range from a dark chocolate brown mocha shade to a light pale brown tone, and can even display gorgeous auburn highlights throughout the grain. The sapwood contains a lighter tan shade and is usually straight grained with a texture that is coarse and uniform. Walnut floors have unmatched color variations and grain variations that can’t be found in many other wood species.
American black walnut is an excellent option for many interior applications. Homeowners use this wood not only for their hardwood floors, but also for cabinet lumber and furniture. These prefinished hardwood floors look stunning in any kitchen, dining room or living space, and instantly become the focal point. Walnut flooring also contains fewer seams in the wood, resulting in minimal movement and a less busy grain pattern. Walnut floors are commonly used in modern lofts as well as rustic country farmhouses, making it an ideal choice for many homeowners.
