I found this picture of some Brazilian Cherry Hardwood Floors while looking around the net for different types of hardwood floors. From what I understand, this type of wood is very resiliant to moisture and the natural swelling that occurs when you use real hard wood floors vs laminate flooring.
Summer and I talked about putting in hardwood flooring that is dark, as opposed to the “Beachy” look I grew up with in the tourist town of Ocean City New Jersey. I am almost thinking I like this dark wood below…but it may not be able to stand up to the humidity that we will be dealing with.
Dark Hard Wood Flooring
We definately voted against both the Tub and Shower combinations I blogged about a couple months back. We want to make the bathrooms really nice, for resale value, but also want to have bathrooms that we really like.
On a non-serious note, while doing my research, I found this chart entitled: Hardness and Shrinkage.
Granted, this is just a graph illustrating the hardness of wood, but it still made me laugh out loud when I saw it. Yeah, I know, I am a 12 year old in a 32 year old mans body. :-)
