Can you get hardwood flooring with natural knots and grain?

Choose a rustic or natural grade rather than premium grade hardwood, and you can enjoy the wood as Mother Nature created it. With this 'lower' grade hardwood, your floor will contain a variety of unique grain patterns and wood tones as well as knots. Consider omitting the stain and applying a sealer only for optimal effect. Folks who reside in Waunakee, Wisconsin, can find hardwood in all of the latest styles at Majestic Floors and More LLC. We offer a price match guarantee as well as next-day installations.  

Wood species

White oak is one of your options if you like visually attractive wood floors. Live saw milling creates a beautiful grain pattern that showcases knots. Hickory is also a light wood, and it has a darker grain and, thus, visible knots. Ash is darker than hickory. The wood has a pronounced grain pattern that includes knots. Maple, which has a minimal grain pattern, and walnut, which features color variation throughout boards, are also good natural-grade options.

Benefits of natural grade wood

It's essential to consider your lifestyle and the appearance of the flooring when you're comparing hardwood brands. Natural-grade wood is a good choice for even the most active households since it is appropriate for high-traffic areas. Signs of wear and tear aren't noticeable. Imperfections add character to the floor. This low-maintenance flooring is a worry-free option for parents as well as pet owners.
