Exotic Olive Wood Flooring

Olive wood is a fairly new exotic hardwood flooring material that Denver Carpet and Hardwood now carries. Having a 1600 Janka rating (the rating that measures the resistance of a sample of wood to denting and wear), it is considerably hard compared to red oak. This means dents and scratches are going to be harder to get into the wood, which is perfect for high-traffic areas or families with many children or pets.

Olive wood can range in color from yellow, brown and a greenish to lighter blondes with dark veins that run through it. This type of color variation will make small rooms look large and large rooms look even bigger, which is great for home value. Olive wood goes with almost any type of decor thanks to its versatile coloring and grain.
