Anyone living with walnut floors?
Have about a week to make the flooring decision for the kitchen/dining area flooring. Walnut has been the selection but I worry a little about the denting issue. I've had oak several times before ... it dents/mars a little, and it hasn't bothered me. So I'm wondering about those of you actually living with walnut floors - how do you like it?
I thought about getting #1 common to get more "character" in the walnut so that if it dents/scratches it would kind of fit into the character look. And I like knots, but I don't like that the lower grades give more sapwood. I like the even color of select grade. I can't figure out how to combine the even color of select grade with the knots of #1 or even #2 common.
Thoughts/ideas/advice/experiences are needed! Thank you in advance!
