Oak has been used for generations as a flooring material. Oak wood flooring creates a warm welcoming environment which adds to the value of any home. Oak wood flooring can be used in any room in the house from the formal living room to an informal playroom. Oak wood flooring can be stained to various tones and shades, light, dark, or somewhere in between, to match any colour. Oak absorbs stain slowly so the right colour can be attained easily.
