Walnut Laminate Flooring
Walnut wood's color and strength have long made it prized for many different applications such as furniture, musical instruments, rifle bodies, and even flooring. Quality solid wood flooring made from walnut is especially desirable, but some people do not want to spend time and energy on the moderate amount of maintenance required to keep solid walnut floors looking like new such as the periodic oiling and refinishing. There is a less labor-intensive flooring option for those who admire the look of walnut and want ease of maintenance.
Laminate flooring made to look like walnut wood does not include walnut in its construction, so none of the steps necessary for preserving real wood are necessary in the routine care of walnut laminate flooring. Nevertheless, the beauty of authentic walnut is retained even in inexpensive laminate flooring, as walnut laminates are so realistic-looking that hardly anyone can compare laminate flooring to solid wood flooring and tell the difference.
The ease of care with walnut laminate flooring is seen with regular sweeping or vacuuming and damp mopping every once in awhile. No oiling or lacquering is ever needed with walnut laminate, making good walnut laminate flooring the best choice for the time-strapped consumer who loves the look of walnut wood.
