Though glossy tile and smooth, classic hardwood have long been traditional flooring choices, many Chesterfield homeowners are now turning to more rustic, natural flooring styles. With home décor trends now leaning towards the modern farmhouse aesthetic, perfectly imperfect finishes and textures are more popular than ever. Our Floor Coverings International® of Chesterfield experts particularly like these three rustic flooring ideas:
Distressed Hardwood Flooring
Distressed hardwood floors have quickly become a popular choice among homeowners. Flooring manufacturers create distressed flooring with machines that make the planks look aged and weathered, even though the wood is new. This allows you to get the look of old-fashioned hardwood floors and add a bit of rustic character to your home.
If you like the look of textured natural stone, slate tile is an excellent option. Slate typically comes in colors like dark green, charcoal gray, and rust red. It usually has a matte or textured finish, giving it a more rustic and natural look. Slate is also quite durable, so it works well in entryways, kitchens, and other areas that get a lot of foot traffic or may be exposed to water.
Reclaimed Hardwood Flooring
Reclaimed hardwood floors look similar to distressed hardwood, but they are in fact made from salvaged wood planks. Reclaimed wood is recycled from old barns or buildings and reused in flooring planks, so you know your reclaimed flooring is authentically old. You can also feel good about the fact that your floor is made from recycled wood rather than freshly cut trees.
