What Is American Walnut Hardwood?
American walnut is primarily harvested in the central United States. It also known as American Black Walnut, North American Walnut, or Black Walnut hardwood. It typically features white sapwood (the outer, living part of the tree) and dark chocolate heartwood (the inner part of the tree), with a wide variety of grain designs. American walnut’s grain is often straight, but can also be curly or wavy. These decorative variations are a great way to spice up any space, but these more ornamental styles are often higher in price.
Benefits of American Walnut Flooring
- Unique feel: Walnut floors are a beautiful addition to any home. Their rich colors and unique grain variations create a cozy, inviting feel.
- Wide variety: American walnut’s variations enable it to fit into any style of décor ranging from formal to rustic. American walnut floors are typically a more affordable hardwood and an eco-friendly option, as they come from a sustainable wood source.
- Durable choice: American walnut floors are a resilient variety. They hold up well against moisture and are very stable. However, American walnut is a relatively soft wood, so it is more sensitive to scratches, marks, and dents. As such, if you have young children or pets, you may want to consider a different hardwood for your home. But remember, darker varieties will more easily mask any scratches that occur, and a low sheen finish will also help create a cleaner appearance.

American walnut flooring has two types: solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. Solid hardwood flooring is made up of single slabs of wood. Solid flooring is ideal for environments with low moisture and humidity, as it is more prone to expanding and warping. A basement, for example, is not an ideal space for solid hardwood, as it is below ground and is a moisture-rich environment. American walnut hardwood is easily worked—it has good grip and can be glued easily. This allows for greater flexibility in how you install it. The wood also sands nicely and can be stained to a stunning finish.
Engineered hardwood flooring, however, consists of multiple pieces, ranging from 3-12 layers of thin wood. Each layer lays in a different direction and is bonded together to minimize warping in high-moisture or humid environments. Engineered hardwood is very durable, has great variety, and is easy to install. Engineered wood floors are a great option for any home!
If you are planning on selling your home in the future, walnut flooring is a great way to add value to your property. This renovation is likely to give you a nice return on your investment, in addition to enhancing the aesthetic appearance of your home.
