There are some things that you will need to consider when buying an oak floor. To help you out, I have bought together factors to keep in mind before choosing oak floors for your home. First of all, take into account the overall style and the conditions of your house, apartment, or room. Whether you are going to be installing oak flooring in your living room,  bedroom, bathroom, or your kitchen, you will want to make sure that you choose the appropriate oak floors. There are two kinds of wood flooring—solid oak floors and engineered oak floors. Solid oak wood is more durable and can be sanded and refinished many times. However, it’s not very suitable for areas with high temperatures and moisture fluctuations. Engineered oak flooring is composed of real wood veneers that run in perpendicular directions with the top layer of oak. Although it can be sanded only a few times, engineered floors are suitable for places like bathrooms and kitchen and installation over underfloor heating. Secondly, you can choose between prefinished engineered oak flooring or unfinished oak flooring. Choosing prefinished flooring takes less time to install, but unfinished engineered flooring is a better option if you want to create your tone of oak floors. Also, the types of finishes will determine the maintenance, longevity, and look of your wooden floor. All in all, oak flooring requirements will be different according to your needs, so I recommend talking to a consultant in a shop for specific advice about what type of oak floor fits your home the best.
