Board-to-Board Color Variation

Board-to-Board Color Variation
Wood is a natural material that features changes in color and tone. The board-to-board color variation is more pronounced in some species, less in others. If you like the look of contrasting light and dark tones, select a species that offers most color variation. If you prefer consistent color from board to board, choose the least color variation.

Hardness Scale

Hardness Scale
The density/hardness of the wood species and its ability to withstand foot traffic, children and pets will impact its wear performance, and will vary from species to species. Strong, resilient Oak is used as the industry benchmark. The hardness scale shown to the left shows the relative hardness of this wood species.

Trim and Moldings for Hardwood - Walnut - Artesian Whisper Brown
Quarter Round

Quarter Round

A molding used to cover expansion space next to baseboards, case goods, and stairs steps. Pre-drill and nail to the vertical surface, not to the floor.

Reducer Strip

Reducer Strip

A teardrop shaped molding used around fireplaces, doorways, as a room divider, or as a transition between wood flooring and adjacent floor coverings that are less thick. Fasten down with adhesive, small nails or double-faced tape.

Stair Nose

Stair Nose

A molding undercut for use as a stair landings trim, elevated floor perimeters, and stair steps. Fasten down firmly with adhesive and nails or screws. Pre-drill nail holes to prevent splitting.



A molding used as a transition piece from one flooring to another of equal height or to gain expansion spaces. Fasten at the heel in the center of the molding. Additional support may need to be added to the heel of the molding dependent upon the thickness of the goods covered.



A molding undercut used against sliding door tracks, fireplaces, carpet, ceramic tile, or existing thresholds to allow for expansion space and to provide a smooth transition in height difference. Fasten to subfloor with adhesive and/or nails through the heel. Pre-drill nail holes to prevent splitting.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Not durable I would agree with other reviews, this floor looks fabulous when it's first installed. However it scratches extremely easily leaving white marks that don't blend in with distressed look. I am very disappointed in it's durability and if I was able to do the floors again I wouldn't choose this product. March 18, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Scratches Easily I like a hardy hardwood but these floors scratch easily and when they scratch it leaves a sort of white look that isn't easy to fix with stains or filer and does not blend in with the scraped look that these floors are supposed to have. In fact, our floors were already terribly scratched before we moved in (new construction) and even though we don't wear shoes in the house, have no pets, and we keep rugs on the floors they are in terrible shape after just two years. If you do wear shoes in your house beware. There is one area in the house that we do wear shoes and that is in the entry way as we kick off shoes at the front door. I have attached a couple pictures of our entry area where shoes do often meet the hardwood. Beyond scrapes the floors have actual puncture holes in them from my high heels. I weight 118lbs so it's not like I'm rolling in with excess weight and even then, there are multiple puncture marks and cracks in that area. Just seems like a really low quality product. From afar the floors look good but if you get up close you can see scratches all over and they do not support normal wear and tear. It seems like a really soft wood product with a short life cycle. In the pictures I've included two captures of scratches and two of the dents. I would not buy them again or recommend them to a friend. January 16, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Product is beautiful, but We put well over $10K of this flooring in our new home and after 15 months it looks far worse than the hardwood flooring that we had in our old house for 19 years! The product is not durable at all. My wife and I are extremely disappointed with the performance of this flooring and absolutely do not recommend it to anyone that actually lives in their home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Unbelievable colors and style. Definitely the finishing touch to our new house! Absolutely everything we could've asked for. The style and look is beautiful and everyone compliments it. The colors vary tremendously especially with the different size wood pieces and give it both a classic and yet modern look as well. The hand scrape look is probably what creates this. Again, absolutely amazing! October 9, 2013
