Oak color flooring combines beauty and versatility
Oak color flooring has long been one of the most popular choices for floors in stylish homes and businesses. Oak comes in several species that are ideal for reliable hardwood floors, providing a wide range of color options that can pair easily with any interior design.
Carlisle Wide Plank Floors offers some of the finest Oak flooring in the country, sourced from parts of the country where colder climates produce trees with tight growth rings that yield boards of exceptional widths and lengths. Our floors can be treated with a natural finish to enhance the Oak color, or stained to produce dark or gray color wood flooring that is in line with contemporary trends.
What is Oak color flooring?
Oak color flooring is a hardwood floor that’s made with Oak floorboards and finished to enhance the natural color of the Oak timbers. Red Oak floor colors tend to have a deep salmon hue, while White Oak color flooring is more in the nutty brown range.
What is wide plank Oak flooring?
While most commercial Oak floors use floorboards that are 3” wide or less, wide plank floors use boards that are between 4” and 20” inches wide and up to 12” long. Wider, longer planks produce fewer seams in the floor, creating a sense of luxury and spaciousness that lets the personality of the wood play out across each floorboard.
Can wide plank Oak flooring be installed with a pattern?
Yes. Oak is an excellent option for parquet floors. The different colors of Oak floorboards can also heighten the visual appeal of a pattern like White Oak Chevron flooring or Red Oak Herringbone.
What is the color of engineered Oak flooring?
Engineered Oak floors are made with a thick layer of White or Red Oak that is adhered to multiple layers of a sturdy backing material like Baltic Birch. This layered construction forms a very strong core that can withstand extreme fluctuation in temperature and humidity, creating floors that are ideal for installation below grade, on concrete slab or over radiant heat. Engineered Oak floors offer the same range of natural coloring as solid wood floors, and can be stained to virtually any color.
