Why We Love the Reclaimed Wood Trend, and You Should Too

Reclaimed Hardwood FloorsAt SVB Wood Floors we have a great respect for and love of wood. While we still enjoy our traditional flooring options, we’ve come to have a bit of a thing for reclaimed wood, especially when it comes to using it for your hardwood flooring. While it’s not for everyone, here are a few reasons to change your tune and explore the possibilities of using reclaimed wood for your next flooring project with SVB Wood Floors.

It’s Original

Reclaimed wood is a great way to display your home’s individuality. Since reclaimed wood is not mass-produced like many other hardwood flooring products, your reclaimed wood floors will always be one-of-a-kind. We are currently loving wide plank reclaimed hardwood floors. They have a beautiful rustic look to them that is right on trend with country-style kitchens and homes at the moment.

It’s Environmentally Responsible

Hardwood floors are beautiful, but do require a lot of work, including logging, processing, and transportation. If you’re using approved reclaimed wood, it can decrease the carbon footprint of your floors, as well as save the old wood from ending up in a landfill. It’s a great way to recycle on a larger scale.

It’s Usually Great Quality

If you use reclaimed wood that is in relatively good shape, it is probably of great quality. Reclaimed wood is usually old growth and was originally harvested at a time when trees grew slowly. This means the grains are tighter and denser. All together, reclaimed wood can be much more durable and a more superior quality than many mass-produced hardwoods today.
