Species of Rustic Wood Flooring

Maple, Hickory, and walnut are popularly known species used in rustic wood flooring, but others are also available. Hickory and walnut are more resilient, resistant to moisture, splinters, scratches and stains, which is why they are usually used for rustic floors. 

However, some species can be even harder to work with. For example, heart pine and oak hardwood are more durable than softwoods such as maple and hickory. It’s best to check the hardiness and durability of the wood you’re considering for a rustic floor before buying it.

When you’re looking at species in rustic flooring, it’s important to consider how durable the species is and how much maintenance it will need. Hickory and maple are durable, but walnut is not. 

Walnut tends to be a good option for smaller, smaller homes or projects with a short life. It’s a good choice for flooring in bathrooms, dining rooms, living rooms, foyers and entryways because of its relatively soft and easily maintained grain.

wood flooring, such as that made with heart pine or oak hardwood, can be installed with a few coats of finish. Others need to be sanded down and stained or sealed after installation.
