Prized by woodworkers for centuries, there is no other wood quite like Walnut. Its rich dark chocolate color, purplish overtones and complex swirling grain patterns makes it a rare and spectacular flooring choice whether left natural or stained. The fluid nature of Walnut’s grain makes a dynamic statement that seems to be ever-changing.
II. TECHNICAL DETAIL
Walnut is a nice wood to work with, thus if your renovation project extends to not only walnut wood flooring, but also baseboard, steps and railings, you'll find this wood a charm to work with and relatively easy on your saw blades.
More important than that is the fact that it requires no stain. The beautiful colour is natural so to apply the finishing touches only a clear polyurethane coat is needed on any accessories .... no mixing and matching, no scratching of the stain to expose the "real" colour below. In fact that is one of the biggest advantages of American Walnut Hardwood Flooring.
