Advantages & Disadvantages
The main benefits of walnut floors are their durability, their aesthetic appeal, and their softness. Brazilian walnut is much harder than American walnut, making it much more durable and resistant to dents and scratches. However, the softer American walnut flooring feels more comfortable underfoot. Walnut flooring has characteristically dark coloring, and when this is paired with a glossy finish you have a ready-made sleek, modern look in your home or office.
On the other hand, there are some drawbacks to walnut flooring. The softer varieties of walnut hardwood floors are susceptible to scratches and dents, so make sure to have them properly sealed and try not to have them installed in areas with heavy foot traffic. Factory finishes can also help to prevent scuffs and scratches. Walnut flooring can be somewhat expensive, due to its high quality and its attractive appearance.
