Engineered walnut flooring can come in a wide range of colours often with highlights that offer a fantastic looking contrast between dark and light shades.
The finishes on walnut floors also vary. You can have a floor that is oiled, or one covered in satin lacquer, or matt lacquer. Each of these will offer extra strength to the surface and the lacquer in particular will give your floor a bit of extra sheen. Walnut is generally straight-grained, but sometimes with a slightly wavy or curly grain that produces an attractive and decorative figure.
Walnut is a hardwood with open-grain and fine texture and exhibits exceptional strength making it ideal for areas with heavy footfall. Even when damaged does occur, it is rarely noticeable because of the dark color of the wood and its dense texture.
