Exotic Flooring Toronto

Exotic Hardwood Flooring

Exotic hardwood flooring is still an option for those looking for something different and unique. While its popularity has waned over the years, Brazillian Cherry (Jatoba), Santos Mahogany (Cabreuva) and Tigerwood have remained as the three most popular exotic species. Acacia is also available and would primarily be found in the world of engineered hardwood flooring. Part of what makes exotic wood attractive are the brilliant colours, often showcasing brown’s, red’s, and orange’s. There is little uniformity to the look with a mix of colours scattered throughout. Some of the challenges associated with exotic hardwoods is the inevitable change in colour. Once exotic woods are installed, dramatic colour change can take place. Also, the sourcing of these materials, given that they are mostly from South America, is sometimes unclear which makes this category tricky when it comes to sustainable environmental practices. That being said, a reputable brand will always commit to properly sourced materials. Exotic hardwoods are available in both solid and engineered platforms. Always remember that having the proper relative humidity and temperature in one’s home is one of the most critical factors in maintaining your hardwood floors.

Our professional staff at Invision, Hardwood & Décor Inc. will spend the time to show and educate you on all these important and subtle differences in pre-finished, solid hardwood – not every style is a fit – your personal taste along with your lifestyle will influence the direction we guide you in.

This was an amazing transformation from a storage basement to a modern, comfortable, beautiful family room with a fireplace. We are so happy that we met Roy at the Toronto Home Show and chose the Craft hardwood flooring for this reno. Roy and Pina could not have been more helpful with all of our requests & the best part was the very competitive pricing. Thank you for recommending this product. It looks beautiful & everyone who has seen the room comments on the flooring. It was well worth the investment.

Roy and his team at Invision Hardwood did an amazing job installing our hardwood floors and refinishing our stairs. Roy, Danny and John were a pleasure to work with from the beginning to end. They were extremely knowledgeable and did a flawless job with an attention to detail that I would have never imagined. The project started on time and was finished early. We had our entire 3,000 sq foot house and stairs done in 7 days. Thanks Guys!
