Maple is one of the oldest and most common types of hardwood flooring in homes around the United States. However, it is not as popular as oak flooring; the other oldest type of flooring. One of the biggest benefits is that maple is cheaper, yet still durable. It is also a great option for light-colored stains. It is not the best for staining in dark colors.
If you’re looking for something that is suitable for rug-free homes, maple is one to consider. It is dent-resistant and highly durable.
Something to consider is the color over time. It does become yellow, and if stained dark can look blotchy. It can be great for kitchen and hallways, where the focus will not be as much on the floor but everything else around.
If you do want to keep the cost down when it comes to maple, there are lower qualities. These tend to have more pin holes and knots, which can make it more difficult to maintain.
