I am sure you know what mahogany is; beautiful, classy and expensive exotic wood that makes for a very popular choice for hardwood flooring. I am even more sure that you know what tuna is. So, what tuna and mahogany hardwood flooring have in common? When you spell tuna as toona it sounds the same. But toona is another name for Asian mahogany. Toona is a type of hardwood for flooring with the distinctive grain pattern, hardness of white ash and stability of oak.
Young leaves from toona tree are used as a vegetable in China because of their onion-like flavour. The fruit, bark and roots have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. This beautiful hardwood has been used for furniture and recently for hardwood flooring too.
And the great thing about toona hardwood flooring is that you get a solid, dependable floor generally for less than what you’d spend on a domestic species. If you want to make the most of your renovation dollar, choosing toona (or Asian Mahogany) hardwood floors is a great way to go.
