Dark rustic engineered wood flooring is something that more and more people are searching for. However, we’ve found that when we speak to some of these people, when they ask for rustic, it’s not necessarily the grade of wood that they’re meaning – it’s more the look of the wood. That’s what inspired us to write this article.
Rustic is one of four grades that wood is classed into when it’s lumbered. Rustic wood is typically a grade of wood that sports big knots and irregular colour patterns. But what we’ve found is that people are using the term ‘rustic’ to mean country-style or simple, rather than referring to the grade of the wood itself. So if this is what you’re looking for we’ve got some great examples to share with you today.
