In a previous post, we talked about the hardness of the North American hardwood species we offer. That post made a point of letting you guys know that Walnut is by far the "softest" of these species. Meaning, that it's the most prone to wear in your home. This may leave you with the question, "Why choose Walnut?"
Well, the answer to this question is that walnut is absolutely gorgeous, and when used in the right space it can have a huge impact on your living experience. Walnut is the kind of wood that you want to use in a room that feels luxurious and special. This means that it's ideal for a lower traffic area like your bedroom or office.
In your bedroom, you need to be able to relax and feel completely at ease at the end of a long day. Walnut in warm, dim lighting will cause your bedroom to feel darker and cozier encouraging both your body to relax and your sleep quality to increase.
On the flip side of this coin, walnut can be an energizing species as well. You want to feel important and productive in your office space, and using walnut in combination with a cooler daylight setting will make you feel just that. It's a luxurious wood with a high impact. Add a few plants and your beverage of choice, and watch your productivity soar.
