Brazilian Cherry Madison Floor Coverings InternationalBrazilian cherry flooring, also called Jatoba, is the most popular imported hardwood flooring from Brazil. Its warm red hue and bold shadows are perfect for lending an air of elegance to both residential and commercial settings. Read on to see if this is a good choice for your Madison home or business!

Brazilian cherry is durable.  It registers a 2820 on the Janka Hardness Scale (a scale that compares the hardness of all the different species of hardwood flooring).  Compare that to a 1360 rating for white oak flooring and you can see that Brazilian cherry makes a great choice for high traffic areas. It will not scratch or dent easily and will look stunning for decades.

Brazilian cherry flooring tends to have a high degree of color variation.  You are likely to see shades ranging from a deep chocolate look to a more orange feel, to a reddish hue.

This type of variation is part of the appeal of this product and can add a great deal of interest to a space. When you choose to work with Floor Coverings International Madison you have the advantage of our mobile showroom. We can bring our flooring samples to your home so you can see them in your own home with your lighting and current furniture. This helps to ensure you choose the right Brazilian cherry for your home and style.

A good installation team will also keep an eye on the variation in colors of the planks and make sure to spread the color variation out evenly across the whole room.  Our installation teams have installed countless square feet of Jatoba flooring and they are ready to install yours.
