Green Flooring Series: Reclaimed Hardwood Floors
Not only is this a green option that is good for the planet, reclaimed hardwood floors are beautiful! Knowing that the floor had a past brings out the rich colors more than lighting ever could. Instead of putting old, decaying, or dead wood into landfills or leaving it there to rot forever, the wood is being recycled into other products for a second chance at life, such as a reclaimed hardwood floor!
The reclaimed hardwood floor you order can be coming to you from the other side of the world or your own backyard! Due to the many different places and situations the wood can be found in, every piece is unique and offers a different look and feel. Different places of origin can also yield different types of wood. American chestnut can come from a barn in the Midwest, while the Pacific Northwest might be rich in Douglas fir.
With many different woods producing different colors, textures, and overall style, be sure to do your research before selecting a reclaimed hardwood floor so you can make sure that it will shine in your home. They are beautiful and worth investigating!
