Brazilian cherry flooring, also called Jatoba, is the most popular imported hardwood flooring from Brazil. Its warm red hue and bold shadows are perfect for lending an air of elegance to both residential and commercial settings.
Brazilian cherry is durable. It registers a 2820 on the Janka Hardness Scale (a scale that compares the hardness of all the different species of hardwood flooring). Compare that to a 1360 rating for white oak flooring and you can see that Brazilian cherry makes a great choice for high traffic areas.
Brazilian cherry flooring tends to have a high degree of color variation. From style to style and even within a particular style, you are likely to see shades ranging from a deep chocolate look to a more orange feel, to a reddish hue.
This type of variation is part of the appeal of this product and can add a great deal of interest to a space, call today to talk with a design associate at West Palm Beach Floor Coverings International and find just the right shade for you.
