Red oak wood flooring has contrasting color ranges from nearly white, cream colored sapwood, to pale reddish brown heartwood with some mineral streaks. Red oak is an industry standard and is readily available. It is very similar to white oak in many respects, although is slightly more porous and has fewer cut types available.
