So you would like Brazilian Cherry floors for your new Philadelphia condominium?

I like them too. They are nice and dark, and have a nice tight grain embedded into the look, and there are small variations within each of the planks which gives the flooring an interesting appeal. However, you need to know that I have witnessed a LOT of Brazilian cherry floors that suffer from discoloration, when covered…for even short period of time.

I was once remodeling this Rittenhouse Square condominium, and I had the Brazilian Cherry floors, installed, and had the painter into to paint the walls. He had dropped a drop cloth over the floors for a 4 or 5 day period, and when the drop cloths came up, the floor DIRECTLY under the drop cloths were now a different color than the portion of the floors that had NOT been covered.

What to do? Well, I would suggest that if you plan on covering a portion of your new floors with area rugs, you avoid Brazilian Cherry floors. I have seen on numerous occasions such discoloring in many sections/area of new floors of this type. Does anyone out there know of a solution to this affect on Brazilian Cherry floors? If so…let me know!
