Ash Floors

The beauty of Ash floors.

Ash floors add distinctive beauty to any home. Prized for its density and durability, Ash hardwood flooring offers striking grain patterns and warm hues that range from light blonde to rich nutty brown. Ash floors are excellent at protecting against scratches and dents, and their neutral tone provides extra flexibility when selecting colors. Ash can be stained and finished to nearly any look, making Ash floors perfect for traditional homes, urban lofts, beachside cottages and many other residential and commercial settings.

Add luxury and durability with wide plank Ash floors.

While Ash boards can create a beautiful hardwood floor, wide plank Ash floors create an even more distinctive and luxurious feeling. Traditional commercial hardwood floors use narrow strips of wood that average 2 to 3 inches in width and 3 to 4 feet in length. Consequently, these Ash floors have hundreds of edges and seams in a standard size room, obscuring the beauty of the wood and the personality of the grain. In contrast, wide plank Ash floors may use boards that are as wide as 8 to 20 inches and as long as 12’ feet, creating a far less busy feel and allowing the personality of the wood to show through.

Why choose Ash floors?

The benefits of Ash wood flooring include: • Durability – Ash floors are amazingly dense and durable yet have unique elasticity. • Versatility – Ash can be finished in many different stains to fit almost any design. • Visual interest – the strong, prominent grain of Ash wood allows the unique beauty of each board to shine through.
