Cherry hardwood flooring adds a warm and welcoming touch to any room. The wood has an attractive red hue with dark brown streaks and an appealing circular grain pattern. One characteristic that is especially appealing to many homeowners is how cherry hardwood darkens over time, obtaining a rich red-brown hue. Our installation team at Floor Coverings International Metro East serves the greater O'Fallon, Edwardsville, and Belleville area and is ready to make sure that your cherry flooring looks just the way you want it.
Other varieties of cherry flooring include Brazilian, Asian, Bolivian, and American. These types of cherry flooring vary in terms of color, grain pattern, hardness, and other factors. Brazilian cherry is a popular choice today that brings an exotic touch to an interior. Brazilian cherry has an open grain that looks similar to oak, but is also twice as hard, making it a very durable flooring option. Some other species, like American cherry, are on the softer end of the Janka hardness scale.
This wide range of cherry flooring can meet the demands of almost any modern environment. For a more cost-effective and waterproof option, we even have laminate or luxury vinyl in cherry tones. When it comes to installation, cherry has closed pores, making it slightly more challenging to finish. So if you choose a cherry hardwood flooring that is not prefinished, it’s important that a qualified installation team applies the finish evenly to achieve that perfect look. Our flooring experts will be happy to take on these tasks for you!
