Oak Flooring Vs Wooden Flooring


Posted in Wood Flooring News by Source on September 9th 2013

Hardwood flooring is a great way to add some style to your home. With proper care, hardwood flooring can last many years, so it is a long-term investment that will pay back in time. There is a wide selection of flooring for your home, from cherry, alder, birch and mahogany to oak, pine and walnut flooring. Two of the most popular choices when it comes to hardwood flooring are oak and walnut.

Why Choosing Oak Flooring

Oak is less expensive than other types of hardwood flooring, and can be found in a wide variety of models, patterns and colours. Both red and white oak are extremely soft and can be installed quickly. On the Janka hardness scale, red oak rates at 1290 while white oak is rated at over 1360.

The Benefits Of Walnut Flooring

Featuring a darker colour, walnut flooring has a unique look that can greatly enhance the interior design of your home. It is more resistant to scratches and is longer lasting. Walnut won't dent as easily as oak. Black walnut has a rating of less than 1000 on the Janka hardness scale, but all other types of walnut are considerably harder: Brazilian walnut features an impressive 3628 while red walnut has a rating of 2450.

According to your preferences and budget you can choose either oak flooring, which is a more standardized flooring option that won't break your budget, or walnut flooring, which is a more durable and stylish choice. If you are concerned about durability, Brazilian or red walnut are the best choices on the market.
