October 13, 2014 by | David | There have been 0 comments

As homeowners increasingly gravitate towards rustic decoration, it seems only natural that reclaimed flooring should become the apple of every designer’s eye. Altrufir examines the qualities that have given rustic hardwood flooring the center stage in emerging decorative trends.http://dougfirflooring.com/news/wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/wordpress/img/trans.gif

Rustic Hardwood Floors: A Textural Palette
Designers and homeowners alike are focusing more on textural value. Reclaimed flooring is a great way to play up rustic elements in your space. The “imperfections” are what makes recycled flooring such a strong focal point, featuring aged elements like nail holes, bolt holes, knots, checking, staining and oxidation marks. Rustic hardwood floors add a touch of character to any room.


Natural Tones and Timeless Character
Think of your floor as the stage for the room, creating a color scheme that defines your entire space. Homeowners are leaning towards the natural tones that rustic hardwood floors provide. Darker, earthy coloring makes a space feel cozy and comfortable. Lighter tones exude rustic appeal, creating a farmhouse-inspired style paying homage to architectural designs from centuries past.


Authenticity Through Unique Lengths and Widths
Reclaimed Douglas Fir flooring stands out against mainstream flooring options with its distinctive and timeless appeal. Reclaimed flooring is authentic; its appearance is as close as one can get to the original tree feel. Altrufir offers a variety of lengths and widths that will align with any homeowner’s decorative vision.
