Reclaimed oak flooring is a great choice if you’re looking to achieve the new modern rustic look in your interior. No matter whether you’re looking to floor a lounge, kitchen, dining room or bedroom, if you make the right choices, you can be sure of a stylish interior that will last a very, very long time.
The thing with genuine reclaimed oak flooring, that’s to say oak flooring that has been recovered from the likes of an old barn in France or a school or dance hall in Fleetwood is that it’s really hard to come by. As anyone who has gone through the process will tell you, the time you need to wait for your dream floor to come along seem like an eternity. So what’s the alternative? In short, the very best option for reclaimed oak flooring, if you want to quickly achieve the new modern rustic look, is to choose a new floor that has been made to look old.
When you choose engineered reclaimed look oak flooring, you get all the stability and style of genuine reclaimed oak flooring, but without the wait. This option takes interiors to a whole new level, with a modern rustic look. Seen in stylish bars, hotels and restaurants, there are also plenty of examples of this sort of flooring in interior mags. Why? Because it’s a look that’s really sought after right now at the same time as being a look that’s unlikely to date.
At Wood and Beyond we know that our customers (quite rightly) demand the best, and this is why we’ve made sure that the reclaimed oak flooring that we’ve picked out will give you that new modern rustic look and be convincing even to the closest of critics. You can see our full range here. Basically sharing the common feature of being dark and aged looking, this sort of floor will perfectly offset any style of interior, but works particularly well with relaxed, plumped up sofas and chairs in washed out pastel shades, maybe with the occasional sheepskin rug to add interest and charm.
