Why Oak Hardwood Flooring Is the Best

Hardwood floors are nothing new; they are one of the most traditional types of flooring a home can have. Solid oak flooring has always been one of the most popular materials because it is incredibly sturdy and can withstand heavy foot traffic due to the hard natural of its fiber. It can also withstand dirt and grime and requires very little maintenance beyond sweeping and mopping it regularly.

Unlike laminate flooring, oak is an environmentally friendly hardwood because, as long as it is taken care of, it almost never has to be removed. Oak can be recycled and renewed through refinishing, so the same boards can last for decades or more. This also makes them a cost-friendly option.

There are several types of oak wood available on the market. When most people think of oak flooring, red oak comes to mind. Red oak hardwood flooring has a light golden to pink coloring with reddish undertones. It is loved for its wide grain pattern and unique variations in pattern. It is  complementary to both historic and contemporary homes.

On the other hand, white oak is also a striking choice that boasts warm, golden-brown tones. This type of oak tends to have a finer grain and more repetitive pattern than red oak. White oak is also reputed to stain more uniformly than red oak, which makes it a great choice for homeowners who want to personalize the color of their wood floors.
