When looking for new flooring, there are many characteristics that shoppers should look for.  Some people are solely focused on matching the floor to the counter top colors, whereas others have kids and dogs and need incredible durability.  Generally, the three most important things to look for in all flooring are durability, color and looks and oak floors have all three and a few other strong characteristics.
