TED TODD FLOORING
American Black Walnut Flooring
Naturally beautiful, with no need to handmade alternatives, staining or chemical washes, American Black Walnut engineered flooring shows off striking tones and deep colours, whilst utilising the engineering work of our master craftspeople, to last a lifetime at the heart of your upcoming project.
These floors are decorative hardwood alternatives to the more commonly seen Oak, adding a sense of interest and independence to rooms, allowing them to stand out when opposed by similar-looking designs.
What is American Black Walnut Wood Flooring?
American Black Walnut flooring is grown and harvested in Northern and Eastern regions of the United States. It experiences bright American sunshine, and harsh winters in the North. All this natural weathering contributes to the texture and grain differences in the wood so no two boards will ever be the same.
By polishing by hand, the timber can reach an exceedingly smooth finish. It develops a lustrous patina that is prized by devoted woodworks for its intense strength, interesting grain and unique colour.
Don’t be fooled by the name however, as not all Black Walnut flooring is black in colour. Dovecote nature grade Walnut planks plays host to a range of grey colours, delicately expressing the natural impurities within the timber.
Most feature deep rich brown colours, such as Rivington American Walnut planks, from our Crafted Textures collection. This nature grade floor features golden dark colours dashing across the boards and a tight grain.
Benefits of American Black Walnut Flooring
American walnut engineered floors have outstanding strength properties, packing dimensional stability and shock resistance, making it a very strong choice in areas such as bars, restaurants and workspaces, as well as in rooms of the home.
In fact, the only spaces we would suggest avoiding using American Black Walnut wood is in spaces where there is high risk of heavy water spillage, such as bathrooms. In kitchen however, where the spillage will be more minimal, these floors will be un-phased.
These floors are engineered with a 15-20mm construction and a 4-6mm wear layer, so you don’t need to worry about damaging the natural appearance, as long as you give these boards and blocks a little love over the years.
This durability makes the timber suitable for various applications. Walls, floors and ceiling all benefit from an injection of this wood, which is suitable for underfloor heating too.
American Black Walnut Wood Flooring Installation
Any Ted Todd or Woodworks by Ted Todd should only ever be installed by an experienced professional, and self-installation should not be attempted.
