Reclaimed barn wood flooring.
Reclaimed barn wood is a great green product that is sturdy enough to use as flooring in the home. The reclaimed wood holds a lot of character and will bring warmth to any room.
If you take a moment to look at the close-up of the reclaimed barn wood you will see that character that I mentioned earlier. The wood doesn’t have to be perfect and, in fact, I would suggest looking for pieces that aren’t perfect. Knots, wear and tear from winter and variations in the grain are great features of reclaimed barn wood that you should cherish.
This type of flooring should be installed by a professional unless you have experience working with hardwood floors. You will want to make sure the correct base flooring is used, that the planks were secured in correctly and will account for expansion and shrinking during season changes. If you are going to spend the money and purchase reclaimed wood, then you should spend a little more to make sure it is installed correctly.
The final result will take your breath away. This is a product that can withstand climate changes and abuse, so you should be able to enjoy it for many years to come.
