Traditional European white oak brings a clean and natural aesthetic to your home. Oak hardwood flooring exhibits a tighter grain pattern and its smaller growth rings make it a perfect choice for all interior design applications. To capture the true beauty of this wood, it is sawn straight through to display the entirety of the gorgeous grain pattern.These wide plank hardwood floors range from a warm honey tone to a dark luscious chocolate color! European oak has a more uniform appearance than traditional American white oak. European white oak has fewer yellow undertones, while French oak exhibits more amber tones in its natural wood. The highest quality oak floors are beautiful to the eye and also have a luscious texture. The wire-brushed texture gives these engineered floors a rustic feel, ultimately pairing well with any interior design.
European white oak has a Janka hardness rating of 1,360 making it harder than red oak and ensures that these wood floors will have lasting durability. These engineered hardwood floors also have a high level of tannin content. In nature, tannin protects the wood from insects. However, tannins also influence how a stain reacts with the plank flooring. Higher tannin levels mean traditional European Oak wood flooring is more suitable for reactive staining, showcasing the unique qualities of the natural wood.
