One of your most significant decisions will be the grain when selecting your hardwood floors.
The simple answer is to look for a closed-grain, but you also need to consider the overall picture.
Visuals begin with species
White oak could be just what you're looking for. It has a tight, closed grain that is so fine it's almost invisible. (Red oak is an open grain.)
Some other tight-grained species include maple, walnut, and birch. You'll find all of them in our showroom.
As always, we'll be happy to address your concerns and questions. So, feel free to come into our showroom to learn more about hardwood flooring in Woodstock, GA.
Other factors that may affect your decision
1. Grain pattern - Logs are cut in three ways, which determines the pattern. Rift sawn features long, straight and consistent grains. Plain sawn has a wavy pattern called cathedrals. Quartersawn is a combination of both plain and rift sawn.
2. Texture - This is the finishing touch on a wood floor. At our flooring company, you'll find everything from a smooth texture to some more rustic ones like brushed, hand-scraped, or distressed.
3. Overall decor - A hardwood surface with closed grains can have more of a formal look, while open ones can be a little more casual. However, keep in mind that this depends on stain, finishes, furnishings, and textures.
Decor also plays a role in your choice. For example, you can use plain sawn for more rustic designs. On the other hand, sometimes you might want a quarter sawn to add a bit of life.
