Cherished for its lasting durability and timeless beauty, Red Oak features a distinct wavy grain and slight reddish tint.
Oak is the most popular hardwood flooring in America, yet many people aren’t aware that there are two distinct species — Red Oak and White Oak. Between the two, there are only subtle differences when it comes to durability, hardness and cost. It's the color and grain pattern that truly set the two apart.
A Red Oak hardwood floor features a fairly high amount of color variation, where even lighter yellows and warm oranges and browns have a reddish tint. The grain pattern features wide lines that can be wavy or have a zigzag pattern. Many homeowners prefer Red Oak because of the natural character that adds to their decor. And, as a bonus, this lively pattern can also be helpful in hiding dirt and wear.
The color variation of Red Oak hardwood flooring makes for a beautiful visual on its own, but you'll also find a wide range of style options for this species. Different collections feature stains and texture treatments that create unique looks while still highlighting Red Oak's distinct grain pattern.
Red Oak Hardwood Flooring is one of the harder wood flooring types available, and only has a slightly lower hardness rating than White Oak. It's a great choice if you're looking for a hardwood floor that will stand the test of time in both quality and beauty.
