Oak is the most common species of hardwood flooring and has been used in homes and buildings for centuries. It is the first species that comes to mind when thinking about hardwood flooring options. Oak hardwood flooring has light, warm tones, with tight and fluid grain patterns, that add natural distinction to the wood without being too dramatic. It is also a “greener” use of natural resources and is readily available in the US. There are two main Oak options for hardwood flooring – Red Oak and White Oak, with White Oak being known for its stability, finer graining, and golden warm tones.
The Elegance Series features 5″ wide Natural White Oak solid planks that have been wire brushed to give the floor a warm, yet subtle antique look. The process of wire brushing adds texture to the surface of the wood which visually enhances the grain. By selecting one of the brown, beige, or grey hues available in the Elegance Series, you are sure to add a look of rustic sophistication to your home.
