About American Cherry Wide Plank Flooring
Refined. Charming. Classic. That’s American cherry.
American cherry wide plank floors have been a mainstay in American homes for generations because they offer a natural richness that is nearly impossible to replicate. The reddish hues of this species will light up any room with their time-honored charm.
American cherry has a fine, consistent grain pattern and often exhibits significant color variation from plank to plank, ranging from reddish brown in the heartwood to a vibrant red or light pink in the sapwood. Cherry flooring darkens to a deep auburn color within six to eight months of being milled, and continues to darken with age. A linseed oil-based finish or any European hardening oil will accelerate this photo sensitive effect. Wide planks accentuate the natural beauty of this wood.
Because American cherry flooring has a low Janka hardness rating, it is best suited for family rooms, great rooms, studies, or dining areas (not recommended for installation in commercial settings or other high-traffic areas). The wood will readily show any surface damage, so it is recommended that you pair this species with a matte finish.
Although it has a low hardness rating, American cherry is 17 percent more dimensionally stability than the average wood species, making it a good choice for environments that experience significant humidity fluctuations throughout the year.
If you are looking for a floor that offers rich colors and classic character, American cherry will not disappoint.
