What is light distressed wood flooring?
Distressed wood flooring is a new wood floor that has been treated or textured to give it an aged appearance. A light distressed wood floor is one that has been created with light hardwoods like Ash, Birch or White Maple, or one that has been stained a light color.
What is a rustic wide plank floor?
A rustic floor can be an antique floor made with boards salvaged from old buildings, or a new floor that has been distressed to give it the appearance of an older surface. Rustic wide plank wood flooring is an antique-looking floor made with boards that are significantly wider than standard commercial floorboards, which are typically only 2¼” to 3” wide. Wide plank floors from Carlisle, for example, come in sizes that average 4” to 12” in width.
