A great way to make a room a showcase is to install exotic wood flooring.
According to Shannon, who blogs at Floor Talk! exotic wood floors will set your home apart from others that have more traditional wood flooring.
Over 60 species of exotic woods exists around the world. Popular flooring choices include Santos, Mahogany, Brazilian Walnut, Tiete Rosewood, Brazilian Teak and Amendoim. The flooring is available solid or engineered.
Like any unique flooring or design purchase, be sure to view or request several different samples to see the range of color and grain in the floor. These natural characteristics are part of what makes the item exotic.
Also make sure you understand how hard your wood floor will be. Many people are under the misguided notion that hardwood floors will not dent under heavy pressure.
