Long the favorite of homebuilders and homebuyers alike, the acclaim of maple hardwood floors is well earned for a variety of reasons, most notably its appearance and stamina. Is it durable? Just ask the countless basketball courts and dance floors that maple adorns.
As far as looks go, maple’s subtle beauty can be attributed to its natural cream color and fine grain, which ranges from uniformly straight lines to curly patterns. Some cuts of maple contain a unique mark called a “birdseye” which is a distinctive pattern of small marks adding an extra hint of character to its understated appearance. Unlike most other hardwoods, the sapwood of maple lumber is used more commonly instead of the heartwood, which accounts for its lush, milky hues.
