What is rustic wide plank wood flooring?
Rustic wide plank wood flooring is a wood floor with planks that are much wider than standard commercial flooring and which are fashioned from antique wood or with techniques used to re-create the look of antique wood.
What are the advantages of rustic wide plank wood flooring?
The aged appearance of rustic floors adds character and warmth to a room, while wide plank flooring creates a more elegant and spacious feel in the room.
Can rustic wide plank wood flooring be made with any wood?
Reclaimed wood floors are typically made with wood species that are common in centuries-old buildings – rustic Chestnut, rustic Pine and rustic Oak flooring are quite common. For rustic floors in other species, like rustic Hickory hardwood flooring for example, it’s usually easier and less expensive to use texturing or distressing techniques to create a rustic look. This approach also enables stain to be applied to the floorboards more easily to dark or light distressed wood flooring, for example.
Can rustic flooring be installed with patterns?
Yes. Virtually any type of wood can be installed in a pattern. Wood floor patterns, also known as parquet, add sophistication and visual interest to room.
