About White Oak Hardwood Flooring
White oak hardwood flooring invites many design options. Its warm, neutral shades provide the perfect backdrop for a monochromatic design plan or a more colorful, vibrant scheme. In addition, white oak flooring is highly durable and stands up well to heavy foot traffic. As a natural wood product, white oak floors will expand and contract depending on location and seasonal changes, but white oak is more stable than some other hardwoods, so the shrinkage will be much less.
As with all hardwoods, white oak flooring changes color with exposure to light. However, the color change with white oak is not as profound as it is with some other hardwoods. In effect, the white oak will take on an amber hue, which enriches the overall look of the floor. If you prefer to change the color of your white oak flooring without nature’s intervention, white oak can be easily stained.
