Reclaimed wood is going to give every space a very rustic feel. We joke a lot about "character" in hardwood floors, but there is no better way to get "character" out of a floor than for that floors to have a rich and deep history. We've done a few floors with reclaimed wood in the past six months. We're always impressed with how different it turns out. It is truly impossible to know what the floors are going to look like until we put that wood down. If you're the adventurous type, then reclaimed wood may be the path for you.
