Rosewood floor - $8.00 »
Rosewood is an exceptionally hard wood with a very distinctive grain pattern. Its colors range from light yellow to nearly purple. Rosewood has been popular for centuries for furniture making and has recently been turned into flooring planks. It is an uncommon wood species, due mainly to its historic over-harvesting. However, in recent years it has started to grow on sustainable farms.
Rosewood doesn't get its name from its coloration. Rather, it gets its name from its distinctive, rose-like scent. A rosewood piece of furniture or rosewood-floored room will smell like a spring garden for years and years.
Pros: Its distinctive grain pattern and fragrance add character to any home
Cons: An attention grabber with a checkered past
Suggested uses: Living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens and baths
Price range: $8 to $25 a square foot
