Hard maple is a hardwood that grows mostly in Canada and the United States, often a choice for homeowners who are looking to brighten up their home with a unique and distinct floor that is durable. The wood has a close, generally straight grain that can also appear curly, wavy, or striped.

Scratches and imperfections are more noticeable because of the close, even grain and pale color. However, Golden Elite offers a matte finish that will help make marks less noticeable.
