Cherry flooring is a unique material to add to any space! There are times when nothing else will do but cherry as it has certain traits that make it unique.
Cherry floors change over time. As uv rays penetrate the wood, it gets darker and richer over time. Sometimes, it can even take on a rich brown tone.
Cherry has a grain pattern that is fairly strong and bold. Cherry flooring is beautiful in its natural colour, and this is the most common way to finish it. Without stain, Cherry flooring has a fairly wide range of colour. Commonly, there are many shades of brown tones, different hues of red, and slight hints of white sapwood throughout each unique board.
Cherry can be stained many colours to fit a desired look. Most commonly, our Cherry floors are finished in their natural colour. Depending on the appearance we are going for, stains are used to obtain a very special look. Cherry takes different brown tones and ebony well. Most often, No.1 common is used for the grade of the cherry. It’s a bit rustic without being over the top. Walnut flooring is a great option for those who want a truly unique floor that is very warm in tones.
Although Cherry ranks lower in the janka scale, it holds up incredibly well when there is texture on the top. With the texture, it’s a great option for dogs, children, active lifestyles, and for those who don’t want to needlessly worry about their floors. It’s suitable just about anywhere and can be installed in your place of business, such as office spaces, restaurants, or in your home or condo. Dents, scratches, scraps, wear and tear, and abuse are no match for Cherry flooring that has textured saw marks. There are even options with regards to the appearance of a textured top floor. The saw marks can be sanded so that they aren’t rough, yet they are still visible. Another option is to fill the saw marks. What this does is give the illusion of a textured floor but in reality, it’s nearly flat as the filler has filled in the saw marks. The filler can be stained to blend into the wood, or it can be tinted to give a contrasting appearance.
Would you like texture but you don’t want the saw marks? There are options! Initially, we install the Cherry flooring with a flat top. After installation and during the finishing phase, we can add more subtle texture. With this process, texture is added and makes the Cherry flooring more forgiving to live with, and adds to the unique beauty.
