A Truly Rustic Look
This is an engineered, reclaimed, skip planed white oak specified exterior barn wood floor prefinished with Bona Naturale installed in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The flooring features beautiful warm brown tones from the original patina of the barn wood, and black tones from the skip-planing process making for a uniquely rustic wide plank floor.
The combination of the natural patina which developed in the wood over time as well as the weathering that it was exposed over the years creates a very rustic look in this floor.
The untouched, natural, sheen-free look lets the true nature of the floor come through. The planks vary from 2′ to 10′ in length, adding an additional element of visual interest and appeal to the room.
Getting Specific to Create a Truly Custom Floor
This floor in particular is truly one-of-a-kind because we were able to specify that the customer wanted white oak and exterior barn wood only. Most mills do not allow you to get so specific when ordering wood––rather, they offer “cookie cutter” floors as Wide Plank Floor Supply rep Chris Sullivan explains in the video. Our unique partnership with our mill enables us to get very specific so that we can create made-to-order flooring for our customers, allowing us to meet a variety of design needs. This floor was truly made to order and customized for the customer down to very specific and important details.
In addition to everything else, this floor is very eco-friendly and sustainable. The fact that it is reclaimed means that new growth did not have to be cut down to make this floor. Additionally, it is maintained properly, this floor will last forever.
