Have you ever toured a 100 year old home, and been “floored” by the unique quirkiness of the hardwood floors? This is called varying length and width hardwood flooring.
In these old homes, you’d often find wood floors of varying widths and lengths. Back in the early 1900s, this wasn’t so much of a design choice, as it was a strategy to most efficiently use the entire tree. Even in the present day, we’re trying to make a smaller footprint on our forests compared to the past.
Today, our manufacturing technology has improved, but we still love varied planks for the rustic and unique aesthetic they add to homes of every age. And now, it’s easier than ever to achieve that perfectly weathered reclaimed look with interior designers and homeowners’ demand.
Armstrong’s Woodland Relics collection is a modern take on an old-world style. Boards vary in width from 3” to 7.5”; adding natural character that can easily, yet thoughtfully flow throughout the home. There are also various types of colors and tones to choose from to match the style of your home.
A specially curated mix of species, widths, and varying finishes creates an authentic and versatile aesthetic that will stand the test of time in any space. It’s perfect for adding that extra touch of coziness that gives the “home sweet home” feeling!
