About Cherry Flooring
Grain - Cherry is a tight grained species so the grain is less noticeable than species such as Oak or Hickory. The tighter grain gives the wood a smoother appearance.
Color - Cherry is known for its red tone but it also has some color variation leaning towards greens and yellows. The heartwood of a cherry log is deep red with little color variation, while the sapwood is more yellow and prone to a beautiful array of color variations. Orders can be customized to maximize or minimize sapwood.
Character marks - Cherry is not known for extensive character marks such as knots or bark, however a cherry floor can be ordered in a higher grade to minimize knots in the wood.
