Hardwood has long been the most popular flooring material we sell, with white oak at number one. Some Monmouth County homeowners are looking for a hardwood that is stylish and unique. Cherry is a great option for anyone trying to achieve an elegant look and feel. Below is more information about this beautiful hardwood.
Cherry—or American cherry—is native to the United States. It is easy to get confused with Brazilian cherry, but they are completely different hardwoods. American cherry is softer hardwood ranging in color from beige to medium brown with red undertones. It is prized for its natural color variation from plank to plank and its timeless warmth.
Benefits of Cherry
Cherry is popular for a reason. Here are a few of its best qualities:
- Gorgeous: there is something indescribable about the way cherry looks. It feels both elegant and authentic, rustic yet traditional. Over time, with exposure to the sun, cherry darkens and its red undertones become more prominent.
- Sustainable: native to the United States, American cherry is an environmentally friendly hardwood flooring option.
- Versatile: there is a tremendous amount of natural variation from tree to tree and even board to board. This means that you can find cherry in almost the exact color you desire to match your existing décor. Cherry also comes in many sizing and coloring options.
Strength and Durability
Due to its low Janka hardness rating of 950, cherry is not the best choice for parts of the home that experience large amounts foot traffic. With proper care, however, your cherry hardwood can last a lifetime.
