The Allure of Exotic Hardwood Floors

Exotic hardwood floors are made up of solid exotic wood that is not grown in North America. These wooden planks are imported from Africa, Australia, Brazil, and the Far East. They are known for distinct coloration and wood grain, and can be bought as solid hardwood plank or engineered wood construction.

Exotic hardwood flooring is used for its distinct look. These pricey floors should be considered an investment as homes with exotic wood floors fetch higher price than the homes with other floorings.

When selecting your exotic hardwood flooring, you can choose from different grain styles and colors. Dark colors go well with conventional interiors, while light colors are suitable for casual and modern interiors. These versatile floorings come in a wide range of finishes. Exotic hardwood flooring can be installed in all rooms but the selected area should be kept dry.

Exotic hardwood flooring comes from all over the world, and is available at many retail outlets. However, in most cases you will find pricing for this item to range from $4.00 to $7.00 per square foot. Since exotic hardwood floors are not manufactured in the United States, it is best to find a seller who imports large quantities, and thus pays less shipping costs per square foot. Often such a seller will pass some of the savings on to you.
