From Old Barns to Modern homes : Reclaimed Floorboard’s Journey

Each plank tells a story—a narrative of years past sitting heavy in the grain. Today’s homes are not just structures; they are a tapestry of tales, and through reclaimed floorboards, they are enriched by history. At Reclaimed Floorboards UK, we bridge the gap between the rustic charm of yesteryear and contemporary living spaces. Our journey of reclaimed floorboards begins long before they find their way into your home. 

The Origins

Salvaged from an array of sources including vintage homes and commercial buildings, railways to places of worship, medical and athletic facilities, schools, renovation and dismantling sites, as well as aged barns. These structures have withstood the tests of time and elements, housing countless memories and experiences within their floors. As these buildings retire from their original purpose, we rescue and repurpose their bones, allowing their legacy to continue in a new form. 

The Process of Reclaimed Floorboard's

Extracting the floorboards is a meticulous process, one that requires patience and reverence for the material’s storied past. Each board is carefully removed, using our extensive suite of advanced equipment, nails are extracted, and surfaces are delicately cleaned. It’s a process which both preserves the integrity of the wood and prepares it for a future life. We produce all our own reclaimed wood products, with a dedicated, talented team of craftsmen doing everything in house.

Reclaimed floorboard's journey

Modern Rebirth

As modern homeowners seek out authenticity and character in their living spaces, the demand for materials with a narrative has grown. Reclaimed floorboards offer this in abundance. They migrate from structures of old into modern homes, bringing their rich, weathered textures and warm, storied spirit along with them. In your contemporary residence, these floorboards do more than just span the breadth of your rooms—they evoke conversations and wonder. They serve as a rustic reminder of a world before, seamlessly integrating into architectural designs that celebrate both the old and the new.

Sustainable Elegance

Beyond aesthetics, the reuse of floorboards is a conscious step towards sustainability. With each installation, we reduce the need for newly sourced lumber and help preserve our forests. The longevity of reclaimed wood flooring proves that beauty and sustainability can walk hand-in-hand, setting a foundation (quite literally) for an eco-friendly approach to stylish living. Opt for reclaimed timber to embrace the principles of reduce, reuse, and recycle. It requires less energy than processing virgin wood and contributes to saving old building materials from landfills, all while minimising your home or business’s carbon footprint.

A Future Etched with History of Floorboard's

At Reclaimed Floorboards UK, we take pride in giving these storied boards a second life, ensuring they are treasured for generations to come. Whether that be in your old vintage cottage full of memories and life. Or your new modern stylish home, ready to conquer the future. Our catalogue boasts a myriad of options. We invite you to explore how reclaimed floorboards can transform your space—not just visually, but with an enduring spirit of heritage and history.

"Excellent product. I would highly recommend the finished article looks great. Even the delivery driver helped unload. I would suggest to anyone buying to order slightly more than you need, my floorer (I think recommend about 4% more than you would need) I would suggest a little more as I got a little close to finish. This was just down to straightining up the ends of the boards."
