Which Type Of Floorboard Should I Choose?

About Reclaimed Floorboards

Reclaimed floorboards are a popular choice for those looking to add character and warmth to their homes. With the rise of eco-conscious consumers and the trend for sustainable and vintage decor, reclaimed floorboards offer a unique and attractive option for homeowners. But with so many different types of reclaimed floorboards available, how do you know which one is right for your home?

When choosing the right type of reclaimed floorboard for your home decor, there are several factors to consider. These include the style and character of your home, the amount of foot traffic the flooring will receive, and your personal preferences and budget.

Match Your Home Decor

First and foremost, you should consider the style and character of your home. Reclaimed floorboards come in a variety of woods, finishes, and sizes, and each type has its own unique personality. If you have a traditional or rustic style home, then you may want to consider reclaimed pine or oak floorboards. These types of floorboards have a warm and inviting feel, and their knots, cracks, and imperfections add to their character.

For a more contemporary or modern look, you may want to consider reclaimed floorboards made from exotic woods, such as teak or mahogany. These types of floorboards have a sleek and elegant appearance and are a popular choice for those looking to add a touch of sophistication to their homes.

When choosing your floorboards, it’s also important to think about the overall look and feel of your home. If your home has a more traditional or rustic feel, then you may want to choose floorboards with a more weathered and worn look. On the other hand, if your home has a contemporary or modern feel, then you may want to choose floorboards with a more polished and finished appearance.

Another factor to consider is the finish of the floorboards. Some floorboards may be left unfinished, while others may be sealed or stained to give them a more polished look. You should also think about the type of finish you want for your floorboards, as some finishes are more durable and long-lasting than others.

Choose Your Budget

Additionally, you should think about your personal preferences and budget. Some people may prefer the look of wide or narrow floorboards, while others may prefer the appearance of longer or shorter boards. You should consider your budget as different types of floorboards come at varying price points, and you want to make sure you are getting the best value for your money.

It’s important to consider the cost of your floorboards. Reclaimed floorboards can be more expensive than new floorboards, but they are also more environmentally friendly and sustainable. You should also take into account any additional costs associated with the installation of your floorboards, such as the cost of subfloor preparation, underlay, and adhesive.

Which Is Best For You?

In conclusion, choosing the right type of reclaimed floorboard for your home decor is a personal decision that should be made based on the style and character of your home, the amount of foot traffic the flooring will receive, your personal preferences and budget, and the overall look and feel of your home. With the right type of floorboard, you can add warmth, character, and style to your home while also being eco-conscious and sustainable.

"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."
