All About Maple Hardwood Flooring
Maple hardwood comes in three varieties of grain:
- Flame maple: Has wavy red lines and is often used to make acoustic guitars and other musical instruments
- Quilted maple: Bears a pattern that resembles a quilt or ripples on water
- Bird’s eye: Most common and has a distinctive pattern that resembles its namesake, a bird’s eye
As mentioned above, maple hardwood flooring is incredibly durable, no matter which grain option you choose. Like almost all hardwood flooring, maple is also relatively easy to clean and maintain – just sweep the surface regularly to remove debris, and wipe it with a damp cloth to remove any spots or spills. Your maple hardwood floors may also require periodic refinishing depending on the care and amount of foot traffic it receives. While this process will be long down the road for most buyers, we’re highly experienced in refinishing hardwood flooring at Floor Coverings International Metro East and will be able to assist you with that process when the time comes.
Another solid perk of maple hardwood flooring is the vast array of styles and options available. Maple hardwood flooring is available in a wide array of grain patterns and shades, with options available that will suit any taste. Maple is also becoming an increasingly popular type of laminate, which provides an additional flooring choice.
