Why Choose Barn Grade Oak Flooring?

28th Jan 2015 @ 16:03

The grade of oak flooring you choose is one of the biggest influences in how your room will look once the floor has been laid. On one end of the scale is the Prime grade, offering the cleanest and most minimalist look. On the other end is the Barn grade, for those wanting maximum character from their oak flooring.

The barn grade oak flooring is by far the most rustic of the grades available. These solid oak boards are defined by their high number of knots, burrs, colour streaks, shakes, cracks and holes.

Grange 14mm Solid Oak Flooring

Barn grade solid oak flooring is for those areas where absolute character is required. These boards are best suited for the more rustic properties, such as old barns or Tudor cottages. The more traffic and wear a barn grade board gets, the better it often looks. The increased knots and burrs of a barn grade board, often means that the boards appear darker in comparison to other grades.

In terms of durability, there is no difference between any of the unfinished grades of solid oak flooring we supply. The choice of grade should only be influenced by what best suits your environment.

Our barn grade solid oak flooring is available as our standard 20mm thick board as well as in our 14mm range. To discuss either of these further with us, give us a call on 01538 304584.
