Cherry hardwood is popular in the greater North York, Thornhill, Richmond Hill, Scarborough, and Markham areas due to its elegant look and durability. The experts at Floor Coverings International North York share the details on cherry hardwood below!

Different Species

Cherry hardwood is available in Brazilian cherry, Asian cherry, Bolivian cherry, and American cherry. These types of cherry flooring vary in terms of color, grain pattern, hardness, and other factors. Brazilian cherry is a popular choice that is very durable. Brazilian cherry has an open grain that looks similar to oak, but is twice as hard. Some other species, like American cherry, are on the softer end of the Janka hardness scale.


The durability of your cherry hardwood will vary depending on the species chosen. While all hardwoods are durable, the higher they are on the Janka hardness scale, the more durable they are. Thankfully, all hardwood can be sanded and stained again if any dents or scratches occur.

This wide range of cherry flooring can meet the demands of almost any modern environment. Pick from solid hardwood, engineered, and laminate! When it comes to installation, cherry has closed pores, making it slightly more challenging to finish. So if you choose a cherry flooring that is not prefinished, it’s important that a qualified installation team applies the finish evenly to achieve that perfect look. Our flooring experts will be happy to take these tasks on for you!
