Live Sawn White Oak: Durable, Versatile and Fun


White Oak Flooring – Versatility and More

Recently, Cochran’s Lumber had the pleasure of visiting a beautiful home constructed by the professionals at North Fork Design Build. (See our previous Inspirations post for all the gorgeous photos!)

Over 3000 square feet, our character-rich Live Sawn White Oak was laid throughout the home, both in a traditional and herringbone pattern. Seeing how beautifully our flooring complimented the fixtures throughout the home gives us a great sense of pride and satisfaction.

Many potential customers, upon entering our showroom, make the observation that we have A LOT of Live Sawn White Oak in our showroom, both on the floor and on our sample panels. And then the next question is usually ”Why?”

3 Reasons to Consider White Oak

Here are three reasons I tell my customers when looking at new wood options that you can’t go wrong with White Oak:

Durability. White Oak is one of the hardest woods on the market. It has the ability to stand up to heavy traffic, both in a residential and commercial setting.

Versatility. If you have ever had the pleasure of visiting our showroom, then you understand what I mean. From our almost white Linen to our super-rich Italian Roast and everywhere in between, White Oak has the ability to take on numerous stain colors and finishes.

Fun. When I first started working at Cochran’s, I would have never imagined describing a floor as “Fun”, but here I am. Knots, wormholes, and grain variations make our Live Sawn White Oak an extremely popular floor choice that compliments many styles and spaces.

Ponder the Possibilities

Here are just a few of my favorite projects featuring our Live Sawn White Oak.  Then ask yourself, why not incorporate it into your next home or office project?
