Red Oak versus White Oak
We offer both premium red oak and white oak flooring. Which one is right for your home? While the two species are similar, some subtle differences can make all the difference for you. Here’s what to expect from each:
White Oak Flooring
White oak has a less rustic, smooth look to it. The grain is less pronounced, which can make it look a bit more modern and less rustic. White oak is slightly harder than red oak and also a bit more water resistant.
Red Oak Flooring
People who love more pronounced grain patterns may prefer red oak. It also has a slight pinkish tint to it and is a little bit lighter than white oak. Because of its more pronounced grain, red oak isn’t as smooth as white oak, and for that reason, it is slightly less water resistant. But that same graining can make scratches and dents less visible.
Both varieties are exceptionally durable and can be stained to offer improved water resistance and the lightness/darkness that you want. There is not a major price difference, either. At Anderson Flooring, we pride ourselves on educating our customers about their flooring options. We’d be happy to help you discover which oak flooring option would be best for you.
