Brazilian cherry flooring, also called Jatoba, is the most popular imported hardwood flooring from Brazil. Its warm, red hue and bold shadows are perfect for lending an air of elegance to both residential and commercial settings.

Brazilian cherry flooring tends to have a high degree of color variation. You are likely to see shades ranging from deep chocolate, orange, and reddish hues. Your floors can be further customized with different stains, textures, and sheens. Brazilian cherry is available in solid hardwood, engineered hardwood, and even laminate!


Brazilian cherry is a very durable flooring option. It registers at 2820 on the Janka Hardness Scale. This makes Brazilian cherry a great choice for high-traffic areas of the home. Like all hardwoods, it can be sanded and refinished several times to get rid of any dents and scratches that occur. This means that your new hardwood floors will stay looking like new for a long time!
