Types of Oak Flooring
There are two main types of oak flooring: red oak and white oak. Red oak has a slightly red or pink tone in the unfinished boards, giving it a rich, warm feel when stained. It has a traditional straight grain, but there is a lot of variance between boards. In fact, red oak is native to various parts of the United States, and depending on the growing region’s climate, red oak flooring can take on different grain characteristics. The other option is white oak flooring. White oak has a open grain with occasional swirls and burls, giving it a distinct character. Like red oak, there are considerable variation among boards. Since both red and white oak accept stain easily, oak flooring is great for custom design and decorative inlays, as well as simple, clean applications.
