Characteristics of Ash Hardwood
Versatile and Natural Beauty
Ash hardwood ranges a variety of shades – bright golden-blonde, natural mid-toned brown, and even gray. The outer sapwood of ash hardwood is lighter than the heartwood. The grain pattern of ash tends to be minimal and straight, complementing any home decor. Lighter types of ash also take well to staining. Consider a red stain to match the beauty of the expensive cherry hardwood.
Long-Lasting and Durable
Hardwood flooring is a long-lasting and durable option for your home, and ash is no exception! Ash has excellent shock resistance and is the wood of choice for baseball bats. Lighter shades of ash will also conceal minor scratches better than darker wood.
Ash hardwood is easily available from sustainably grown forests. These are forests whose growth rate exceeds the rate at which their trees are cut down. If you’re concerned about your environmental impact, ash is an excellent hardwood choice for your home. White and red oak are also beautiful and sustainable hardwood options. As a natural material, hardwood also requires fewer chemicals to manufacture.
