The Benefits of Ipe / Brazilian Walnut Flooring

Brazilian Walnut flooring is a wonderful choice for any home. People mainly choose ipe for hardwood flooring because of the many benefits that this exotic wood provides.

For instance, did you know that this exotic flooring option is so dense that it does not need to be refinished as often as other, weaker, flooring options?

Also, thanks to it being a feature-rich 100% natural product, a floor made of ipe will last for decades and still look great.

Many people who have purchased ipe flooring have come back to us and said they had no idea how resistant to scratches and slivers their new hardwood floor actually was. Some of the many things said include how safe they feel now that they can let their children run across their floors barefoot. This peace of mind was a god-send to many moms and dads.

Of course, it was also nice to hear that they also loved the way their new floors looked.

Ultimately, if you’re looking to install flooring that is safe, durable, and beautiful, then you’ll do very well with ipe / Brazilian Walnut flooring.

Contact Advantage today to order both unfinished and pre-finished ipe flooring.

Brazilian Walnut Flooring Used For Grande Ballroom

I do a lot of architectural research and am constantly on the lookout for wonderful places in America and across the world that use ipe. Recently, I came across a wonderful and truly spectacular banquet hall in Michigan called the Lafayette Grande. They have just completed renovations to their Grande Ballroom and the results are simply stunning. For the flooring, they specifically chose Brazilian Walnut flooring. As you are aware, Brazilian Walnut is just another name for ipe. Regardless of the name, the result is quite breathtaking.

I can only imagine how nice it would be to have a wedding reception or party at that banquet hall. Frankly, I don’t think they could have chosen a better type of hardwood.

At Advantage Trim & Lumber, we sell Brazilian Walnut flooring and can even custom mill trim and molding to your specifications. Contact us today for a free quote.
