Character Grade Oak Flooring

Character Grade Oak Flooring - our best seller!
Character grade flooring.
Sample shows 4 widths.
22mm tongue & groove boards
Character Grade is our most popular choice of solid oak flooring. It has a smoother grain and smaller less frequent knots than our rustic flooring range and virtually no heart splits. There are swirl grains and random changes in colour, with a range of cream and buff hues.

Homely characteristics
Our character grade oak flooring has a beautiful universal appeal, adding warmth and character to your home. Viewed in a room environment, there are subtle changes in tone, gradual changes in grain, such as swirls, and some dark knots. Together these characteristics produce a beautiful floor of pleasing and restrained character.

Universal applications
Orlestone Oak Character Grade Oak Flooring is suitable for use in living rooms, kitchens and bedrooms, as well as many commercial environments.
