Oak hardwood flooring is one of the most sought after and desirable flooring types today. It quickly increases the beauty of a room, as well as the value of the home itself. Potential buyers are often “sold” by the discovery of rooms floored in a rich, warm Oak hardwood. The appeal only grows over time as Oak is known for its tendency to look better and better the older it is and it never seems outdated or unappealing.
If used in a kitchen or high traffic area, oak hardwood flooring showcases its high durability and resistance to damage, such as dents and cracks. When coated in water protective lacquer, oak is virtually immune to damage. Different varieties of oak are known to be resistant to mold, moisture and even insects, further protecting your home and floors from unwanted complications.
Because of the detailed and beautiful grain of oak, it is ideal for taking on all types of stains and finishes. This gives homeowners the ability to colour their oak hardwood flooring in just the right tones to perfectly match and coordinate to any room or design scheme. If a design or colour palette changes in the home, so too can the colour of the oak. It simply needs to be sanded and re-stained to suit the homeowner’s desires.
There really is no question about why oak hardwood flooring is such a smart and wonderful choice for any home. Durability, distinction, and the ability to change with the home and improve over time makes it an indispensable asset for homeowners everywhere.
