Solid white oak flooring is an increasingly popular choice in hardwood flooring on the market today. Solid white oak flooring is a smart choice for both quality and design reasons. People select solid white oak flooring for its smooth grain, a great look to appreciate over the years. With less graining than red oak, solid white oak flooring takes on a more modern, less traditional look. White oak has growth rings that are closer together, giving solid white oak flooring a more uniform flow. Given that white oak tends to have more mineral streaks, this also contributes to a more linear pattern and up-to-date look for solid white oak flooring.
