Why Select Grade Oak Flooring?
Selecting grading Oak flooring is a grade where only a select number of boards are deemed to be suitable. Boards included in the select grade are mainly clean, but with the occasional tiny knot and shake. This slightest bit of character helps to break up the floor, creating a slightly less uniform look than that of the prime grade. For those who find the knots of the character grade to be "too much", the select grade is often the perfect solution offering tighter knots. Like all of our grades, the select grade is hand selected to ensure that the grade you order, is the grade you get.
A popular look for those choosing the select grade is to choose a light finish such as Original Wood Environment. This particular finish is designed to provide protection, whilst not significantly changing the oaks natural unfinished color.
As with all of our grades of oak flooring, select grade is available as either a solid oak board or an engineered oak board as well as being available in a number of different widths.
