Getting to know oak as a material in interior design projects

Oak is generally a rarely found hardwood species in United States. Oak is generally of two types i.e. red and white but when it comes to grain material white oak is more preferable than red in terms of longer layer.

Thus white oak is durable strong and is in more use. This is the reason why it is used for building ships. It is water proof and can withstand extreme temperatures. Red oak on the other hand is used for manufacturing rail road tiles, wagon wheels and concrete hardwood flooring.

Some plus points of Oak:

  1. The furniture made of oak is strong and its crafting is best when it comes to wooden furniture.
  2. It can stay for years and would not lose its shine and does not wear and tear.
  3. It can be polished easily and is the most preferable hardwood in United States of America.
