Floors needn’t always be made of recently felled timber. The wood retrieved from old floors, railroad sleepers, barns or fallen trees offers many eye-catching flooring possibilities. Discover three reasons why reclaimed wood floors are really worth considering.
1. Every floor has a (hi)story
If only some floors could speak! Behind every reclaimed wood flooring, there’s a history that adds a touch of timelessness to your home interior. Not only has reclaimed timber proven to withstand the ravages of time, its attractive patinas are a silent witness to its unique past.
2. It’s green
History doesn’t impress you? Then, bear in mind that reclaimed wood reduces your ecological footprint. Since no existing trees are felled, a reclaimed wood floor is the green way to go. Reusing wood otherwise destined to be wasted preserves existing forests and saves limited natural resources… It doesn’t get any eco-friendlier than that!
