Wood Character

There are many qualities that can influence the final appearance of hardwood flooring.  One of the first is to determine which wood character is best suited for your interior design concept.  We offer four wood character grades ranging from our a ultra clean looking Prime grade to our heavy character Rustic grade.

Rustic

Our French Oak Rustic wood is naturally distressed.  Frequent solid and filled knots are to be expected and provide a contrasting appearance for a casual but elegant look.  A wide range of color variations to be expected.  Our rustic floor looks best hand-scraped or distressed.
