Ooh, flooring that's stained/finished after installation (what I call real flooring)? I like, I like.

The prefab stuff just looks...well, prefab. it doesn't have the look/feel of hand-finished. Like restaurants - even the best big chains don't compare to like local one-offs.

That's what I call it too: real floor.

I had to control myself in the showroom from over-repeating myself: This looks fake to me... it just looks fake...

Some of that pre-finished stuff is very elaborate, like it's trying too hard, but I didn't like any of it.

Looks like quarter sawn red oak. Nice choice. Please make sure to keep those labby paws off that new floor for a week or two, until the polyurethane cures. Maybe some dog slippers from Amazon?

Thanks, ALE. Ordering these.

And you're right - red oak.
