Barn grade solid oak flooring is sometimes referred to as rustic grade or pub grade in the oak flooring industry.
These solid oak floor boards are characterised by a higher number of knots, burrs, colour streaks, shakes cracks and even the odd hole.
Where you need maximum character for your oak floor, for example in a Tudor cottage, rural camping barn or Irish theme pub, barn grade flooring is ideal. In fact, the more traffic and wear it gets, the better it looks.
Barn grade oak floors often appear darker than character grade and select grade oak floors, simply because they have more knots and burrs. It's worth bearing in mind that when waxed with Blanchon Hard Waxoil, the oak will become even warmer in tone and may not need staining to achieve an aged look. We always recommend that you try stains and waxes on an off-cut first.
In terms of durability, there is no difference between any of the unfinished, solid oak flooring grades we supply. Your decision on which grade to use should be made purely on which grade best suits your setting.
