Hardwood has always been a popular flooring option in the Katy, Cinco Ranch, The Energy Corridor, and Richmond area and across the country. This beautiful flooring option is easy to fall in love with. It’s low-maintenance, elegant and can last a lifetime. Plus, there are practically unlimited style options. There are subtle options that bring the focus of your room away from the floors, and standout styles that bring their own personality to any space. At Floor Coverings International Katy, we love unique woods that bring unusual colors and patterns into the home. Check out a few of our favorites and see if one is right for your home!


  1. Tigerwood – A medium red-brown, this beautiful wood features dark streaks intermittently throughout each plank. The distinctive stripe pattern is what gives the wood its unique name.


  1. African Blackwood – This extremely dark wood is great for a homeowner looking for standout black flooring that’s still timeless and elegant. As its name implies, it hails from the dry savannas of Africa, which may be part of the reason it is one of the hardest and densest woods on the market.


  1. Water Hickory – The contrasting light-to-medium brown heartwood and pale yellow sapwood of this hardwood creates a rustic design that homeowners love. Its paired with an occasionally wavy grain with classic pinholes throughout.


  1. Pecan – Featuring contrasting light brown and pale yellow hues, this American wood is on the subtler end of these unique hardwoods. The varying colors often offer a nice contrast between boards.


  1. Blackheart Sassafrass – This exotic wood has a naturally gary/golden color and is native to Australia. Often the trees are affected with a staining fungus that causes the wood to feature colorful streaks and veins of dark brown and black.
