need help to decide on oak floors
August 31, 2012 in Design Dilemma
There are so many different types of oak wood out there. I am looking for a softer oak look. Is southern red oak have more softer look and less catherals than the northern red oak. Looking to achieve a elegant highter end look. The rift cuts just too linear for me. The older homes with oakwood look calmer than the newer oakwood installs.

I absolutely adore Kentwood hardwood flooring. Check out their website for lots of variety of grain, stain, width, finish etc. You can get a very high-end European look for a very reasonable cost.

I would visit your local hardwood floor retailer and discuss with them your flooring wants and needs. They have the experience to suggest the best type of flooring. Kentwood is just one of the numerous brands available. Mirage is another popular choice which offers over 50 colours and styles of floors.
