Reclaimed wood flooring
Wood brings a natural feel into the home when used as a flooring material. Reclaimed wood is even more unique. It combines both sustainability and beauty. Reclaimed wood tells a story of it’s own and adds a unique feel into the home. With sustainability issues rocketing through the roof, it is not easy to get exotic hardwood. As such, reclaimed wood gives you a chance to customise your floors with hardwood that may not be available in this era.
Reclaimed wood can be defined as wood from a past life that has found a new use. Reclaimed wood could have been a beam in a farmer’s barn and other historic wooden structures such as warehouses. The old wood has a wide range of uses. Other than flooring it can be used for tables, wall panelling and countertops among others.
Reclaimed wood is also environmentally friendly. It is considered a renewable resource as it reduces landfill waste. It also saves energy that would have been used to manufacture new products. As mentioned above, it is sustainable. Nowadays the use of fresh exotic woods and hardwoods is discouraged, reclaimed wood offers a way to enjoy hard wood products without the deforestation.
Reclaimed wood also offers quality and strength. The aged wood is harder than virgin wood because it has a tighter grain structure. It also has a rich naturally weathered colour that cannot be found in the virgin species. This colour and patina is what makes it standout from the virgin species.
