Here are some ideas for you to consider when selecting hardwood flooring in San Diego.
One of the things to consider in your selection of hardwood is the width and length of your new floor. This photo is of a shorter and narrower butcher block pattern and is in contrast to the more popular longer length 7″ wide boards that are in the first photo above. Obviously they are going to use the prime part of the tree to get longer widths and lengths and will normally cost more than the shorter boards which use as much of the tree as they can yield.
Many people ask us if Hardwood is ok to put into a Kitchen. Well here is a classic example of how they are designing the new homes as one open great room. This lends to keeping the same flooring throughout and Hardwood makes a very nice choice, especially since some people are not happy with a very hard tile surface to stand of while working in the kitchen.
Keep in mind that you will want to keep an eye on how much water or spilling is done in that area. The type of wood that you choose can make a big difference in how resistant yours will be.
The short answer is yes, many people are using hardwood flooring in San Diego Kitchens these days and they look beautiful.
Bamboo is a very ecologically friendly renewable resource, IF you are using a reputable source. We prefer to use Teragren or Bambo as they are using sustainable forestation methods and have a higher quality manufacturing standard than most of the other companies.
Note: There are over 1500 species of Bamboo so you can find some that are 25% harder than Red Oak and in some products the density can be as tough as Brazilian Cherry.
