DIFFERENT WOODS FOR HARDWOOD FLOORING
The traditional kinds of wood which you're used for hardwood flooring consist of walnut, ash, birch and maple. You might believe oak is the toughest wood of this choice but this is not correct. In fact, maple and ash are more difficult than oak and therefore stronger.
The hardness and durability of every wood will need to be weighed up with how much traffic will be coming and from this particular area it is to be put in.
Additionally, every wood is a different shade of brown with some wood like oak and merbau being a darker shade of timber, whereas walnut and ash are extremely light in colour. Some forests may get darker over time, with a few getting lighter in appearance. You will have to discuss this colour change with your hardwood floors specialist.
