Domestic Oak Wood Flooring

Oak is the most common type of hardwood around. Traditionally, Oak is what you see in most homes with hardwood floors. Although not the softest wood at 1290 on the Janka scale (the rating that measures the resistance of a sample of wood to denting and wear) it is still the most common wood out there. The only time you would want to go below the 1290 on the Janka scale is if you arereally looking for a rustic look. The woods below oak are soft and are more pront to scratching and denting.

The good features of oak flooring are the characteristics or the grain of oak. You can get a very clean look in oak, without a lot of noticeable knots or large grain. This would be for the more contemporary look. If you’re looking for a more rustic look, you can choose a character-grade oak with larger knots and wide grains. You can even get the wood hand scraped to make it more rustic. The more rustic the oak is, the less you will see the scratches that come with time and use.

Oak takes stain very well, so you can stain the wood to almost any color to suit your personal taste. Oak is also the most affordable hardwood floor you can purchase.
