bloomington hardwood flooringBloomington homeowners love the look and feel of red oak. In fact, it is one of the most popular hardwood flooring options we carry at Floor Coverings International Southwest Metro Minneapolis. Our customers love its unique color and rustic beauty. Here is some more information about this excellent hardwood flooring option.

Warm Hues

Red oak ranges in color from amber to light brown. It gets its name from the subtle pink undertones found in this gorgeous hardwood. The easiest way to tell red oak apart from white oak, another popular hardwood option, is by its hue. Rooms with ample natural light lend themselves well to red oak by bringing out these red undertones.

Unique and Exciting

Sometimes, stains and finishes can make it difficult to identify red oak. In that case, the wild and wavy wood grain and dramatic swirls are a giveaway. Each piece of red oak is unique, making every floor interesting and authentic.
