Are you exploring exotic hardwood options for your home? Don’t miss Brazilian Cherry, a favorite species due to its strength, durability and style.
As exotic hardwood floors become more and more popular, homeowners are given a wider variety of styles, strengths and shades to choose from. Most exotic hardwood flooring is known for its durability, with Brazilian Cherry being the hardest according to the Janka scale.
Exotic hardwood stands out from domestic wood in color, texture and grain pattern. Brazilian Cherry, for example, offers a rich variety of hues that don’t need to be stained to pop. The beautiful colors combined with texture and wood strength is unique to exotic hardwood, and what makes it an investment that will last for years to come – and withstand years of pets, children and clumsy adults.
Although exotic hardwood like Brazilian Cherry is more expensive than the domestic variety, it is also much more beautiful and extremely durable. The countries that export the wood have natural climates and landscapes that allow the trees to mature before being harvested. Because only a small percentage of these forests are cut down at a time, the cost to the consumer is a bit higher, but homeowners can rest assured their floors were made with the habitats overseas in mind.
