PROS: The color and grain pattern will vary in a mixed cherry floor. This will make for a very interesting, unusual floor with a lot of depth to it. You won’t need to stain it. The color is stunning.
CONS: It will be pretty durable. The Brazilian cherry is extremely strong and the American variety is weaker. It would obviously be a much stronger floor if you went with a completely Brazilian cherry floor.
TREE FACTS: Mixed cherry hardwood flooring is a mixture of American black cherry and Brazilian cherry. See the Cherry, American Black and the Jatoba, Brazilian Cherry sections in this “Doc’s Total Wood Species Guide“.
