Oak floors are features in converted lighthouse property
Oak floors are features in converted lighthouse property A unique property is for sale in Milford Haven, Wales - the five-bedroom house was once a lighthouse. This converted home features a semi-circular porch, a large entrance hall and oak hardwood flooring.
According to Country Life, the former lighthouse is located at St. Ann's Head, on the Pembrokeshire Coast. Much of the interior boasts a nautical theme, enhanced by the painted wooden ceiling, paneled walls and oak flooring. Oak flooring, while at home in this unique lighthouse abode, is a great option for any style residence.
The National Floor Covering Association reports that oak is one of the most popular choices for wood flooring. Oak can feature long, smooth grains, as well as knots and interesting textures.
Homeowners who already have oak flooring in their homes may not even need to stain the wood. TLC suggests rubbing a small section of the floor with turpentine to see what the flooring would like with a natural finish. Those who decide to stain their floors will want to follow the product's directions, apply evenly and allow the surface to dry thoroughly.
