Home Care:Hard wood flooring for rooms
2013-01-29
Name: Sarla Hi, what wood flooring should I use for the kitchen, hallways and rooms? They are obviously going to be in use all the time. The kids will run around, and we also have a dog. These rooms are high traffic areas and as much as I like cherry, I know it won’t be a good idea. What flooring should we use? Thanks for your help.

Hi Sarla. I would suggest Hickory as a choice for hard wood flooring for the kitchen and other high traffic areas. It is harder variety of hardwood and it has grain pattern and color that will remain the same for years. It also has rustic smell that stays on and is usually well liked.

Hey Sarla! There are three more resilient choices for the high traffic areas. You can actually look into teak, rosewood and Brazilian cherry wood and see what prices and look suits you the most. Teak is from the deciduous variety and its natural grain is both water and insect resistant. Brazilian cherry is not cherry at all, it is closer to Mahogany. It comes in a rich brown-red variety. As for rosewood, it comes in light yellow to almost purple colour range. All three, Teak, Brazilian cherry and Rosewood could be used not only in high traffic areas, but even in bathrooms.

Cherry hard wood flooring
Hey Saral! You should know your wood. Cherry is much softer wood type and it reacts to sunlight as it has a tendency to become darker. Also since it is softer you would have to think about preservation. Do not use it in high traffic area with kids and pets as it will get scratched and ruined in time. Use it sparingly in dining rooms primarily. If your living room is not ov... - Krishna [View Message]
