One of the more popular trends in the wood flooring industry today is the movement towards more authentic and vintage style hardwood flooring. Floors that possess an “old-world” look which use any and all traditional techniques and styles from the past have overtaken the previous trend of highly polished floors with a flawless look. Because of this, reclaimed lumber has become more and more popular over the years. However, high production costs combined with an increasingly scarce supply has made reclaimed lumber an expensive flooring option. Fortunately, there is an alternative to authentic reclaimed hardwoods.

Customers who seek a vintage look at a lower price should look into distressed style flooring. The reason that distressed hardwood floors are generally priced lower than authentic handscraped floors is because their authentic “wire-brushed” look is supplied by a machine instead of by hand. At simpleFLOORS, we carry many distressed styles floors that come in either engineered hardwood or laminate. The distressed look of these premium-grade floors brings an organic yet traditional feel that adds a rich, elegant appearance to any room.
