Exotic hardwood flooring does have several advantages over
common hardwood. Many species, including Brazilian teak, Tiete rosewood and
Santos mahogany, rank high on the Janka hardness scale, giving them longevity even
in high traffic settings. When you consider the cost of replacing floors
damaged by scratches and wear, buying long-lasting exotic hardwood may be more
affordable in the long run.
If it’s an exotic look you want, consider bamboo – a species
of grass that is often grouped with hardwood flooring. Bamboo plants replenish
themselves quickly, giving bamboo flooring a “green” quality that most hardwood
floors don’t have. Bamboo is also adaptable to a wide number of surfaces, and
can be fixed to plywood or even concrete.
