Oak making a comeback

Rating: 1 votes, 5.00 average.
Oak is making a comeback in fireplace designs; only itís been disguised. When most people think of oak itís the yellow-orange colour of hardwood floor or stair railings.

Walking into an old century home, the creaky oak textured floors suit the overall appeal of the home. Now with more new homes being built, and the popularity of high-rise living, the old oak finish disappeared.

Skip a few years to the present day, oak has been reinvigorated with darker, more modern finishes. Colours like mocha and nutmeg that give this classic material a fresh lease on life. Oaks being such a popular finish a few decades ago, the abundance of oak in the home is apparent.

Pictured below our four different oak finishes, Warm Oak, Medium Oak, Distressed Medium Oak, and Dark Oak.
