About hardwood flooring species: American black walnut

Reading Time: 1 minute

In a series centred around the topic of choosing hardwood flooring, here’s the first installment; american black walnut.  Take a look at this video featuring our own Co-Founder Rob Banks.  Here he is!

So, this choice in hardwood flooring involves a great look (a wide color range and an open grain pattern), with something of a softer surface.   This softer surface means that is it more vulnerable to dents and to scratching than other choices.  However, it’s a stable choice in flooring, in that it is less susceptible to expansion and contraction.

Does anyone out there in blogland have American black walnut flooring?  If so, what are your impressions of it. We’d love to know!
