Maple Flooring

When it comes to maple flooring and furniture, there are plenty of options to choose from. There are approximately 125 known maple species, including shrubs and trees. Maple trees that are used to make flooring are classified into 4 groups: red maple, silver maple, sugar maple and black maple. All of these maple trees are native to North American regions such as Southeast Canada and the Rocky Mountains.

Maple flooring is a popular choice for residential and commercial areas as it has a unique and unusual grain pattern. Maple trees range in color from light grey to red and dark brown. Some maple trees have deformed wood fibers that result in highly decorative patterns such as flame maple (tiger stripe) and quilt maple (quilted pattern). These patterns occur at random in maple species and are commonly chosen to make furniture and guitars.

Of all of the 4 maple classifications, sugar maple is generally the hardest, and thus a popular material for bowling pins, cabinetry and violins. In general, maple is a medium-dense wood, with a Janka Hardness rating of 1460 (0 being the softest - 4000 being the hardest). The Janka Hardness Scale is used to denote the density of a particular wood. According to the Janka Hardness Scale, maple flooring is harder than red and white oak flooring.

Learn more about maple flooring and other hardwood types in our Hardwood Species section. There you can find information on everything from Brazilian Cherry and red oak flooring, to Ipê and chestnut.
