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

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.

Customer Reviews

Rated 1.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Wood is way to soft for everyday living We recently purchased a home with the Midnight Maple wood floors. After moving in, we quickly discovered that this flooring is not suitable for everyday living. The wood is way too soft and moving anything on the floor leaves indentations and dents. I recently dropped a spoon on the floor and it left a small impression in the wood. Every scratch shows up, and you cannot walk on this floor in bare feet or you will see every footstep. We have tried finding the stain to try and fix some of the issues, but we been unable to locate it. If you like to clean floors (every day) this floor is for you, otherwise go in a different direction. January 4, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Its beauty fades...quickly If you live alone, don't have pets, never have company, never wear shoes indoors, then this floor is for you. For the rest of us that subject our homes to normal wear and tear, this is not the right flooring. I have a medium sized dog (40 lbs) and have guests over on occasion. Within a couple of weeks, this floor looked beat up and dingy. Every little scratch shows up. Smudges, dog hair, dust - they're all highlighted and seemingly exaggerated by this floor. It looked amazing brand new, but did not hold up well at all to normal foot traffic. I thought maple was supposed to be a pretty hard wood, but this floor gets dented and scratched easily. I would not recommend it to anyone who wants to be able to enjoy their home. December 2, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not suitable for households with children or pets! I built a new home in 2012 and had the midnight maple floors professionally installed on the entire first floor. They looked beautiful freshly installed however since then they have been a nightmare to care for. I have a small dog, a cat and three children under 5 yrs. and a strict no shoe policy. Despite my best efforts the floor constantly looks dusty, smuggie, and every imperfection shows. my small 13 lb dog and my cat have destroyed the floors with their claws. These floors DO NOT hold up to animals. They are much too soft and the finish shows every scratch. Even light surface scratches on the low gloss varnish show terribly. For the amount of money we spent on these floors I am extremely disappointed with the product. November 8, 2015
