Benefits of Light Hardwood
One of our favorite benefits of blonde hardwood is that it lightens up any space and can also give the illusion of more space in a small room or one with low ceilings. This will work especially well in rooms with a lot of natural light. Another great benefit is that it hides dust due to its light color.
Like most hardwoods, blonde hardwood is available in a wide range of looks. Pick from different tones, sheens, textures, board widths, and more. Blonde hardwood goes well with most décor and different design aesthetics.
Species of Hardwoods
Red and white oak are two of the most popular hardwood species out there and work great for blonde hardwood! Red oak is the more popular of the two and is a lighter, pinkish color with pronounced graining. White oak is known for its streaks and has a golden tone to it. Oak and many other hardwood species can be stained to fit the shade or tone of blonde hardwood you’re trying to go for. Other popular options include maple, birch, or even bamboo.
