When it comes to hardwood flooring, it’s hard to beat the price and quality of domestically-sourced materials. Flooring that’s made in the USA has to travel a shorter distance to get to your Brentwood home, lowering the shipping costs and your domestic footprint. As an added perk, domestic hardwoods tend to be sturdy and reliable flooring options. Here at Floor Coverings International Brentwood, we are particularly big fans of ash—a luscious, hardworking material perfect for busy Brentwood homes.
When treated with a clear finish, ash hardwood floors are quite pale and have a subtle, open grain. Luckily for the Brentwood homeowner with a clear design vision, ash accepts stain quite easily, so it is well-suited to customization. A gorgeous, vivid grain pattern is revealed in ash wood with the application of a tinted stain. If you’re interested in customizing your new hardwood floors with the perfect stain, the design experts at Floor Coverings International Brentwood can help you find the perfect hardwood stain for your home.
Uses of Ash Hardwood in Brentwood Homes
In addition to being exceptionally customizable, ash is a resilient and hardy flooring material. With a Janka hardness score of 1,320 (right between white oak and red oak), ash is among the strongest domestic hardwoods on the market. As a result, Brentwood homeowners can feel confident installing ash in high-traffic spaces like dining rooms, living rooms, and busy hallways. A great wood all around, ash’s natural pale color can bring a tasteful, modern sense of calm to spaces like bedrooms and entryways. Like all hardwoods, ash should not be installed in areas where moisture may be prevalent like bathrooms, utility spaces, basements, mudrooms, and laundry rooms.
