Vintage and distressed flooring is available in real wood as well as luxury vinyl and laminate. There are some great options out there, helping you to achieve the perfect distressed and vintage look in your home.
When it comes to what’s popular with interiors, it’s things vintage! Whether it’s furniture, wall paper, rugs, a fireplace or flooring, it can make a great style statement.
Whether you live in a south side villa, a city centre apartment or a tenement flat in the West End, with some thought and planning you can achieve the vintage look. Look at some magazines for inspiration or pop into our showroom for ideas. Often you simply need white walls, a few statement pieces of furniture and soft furnishings and a distressed floor.
Vintage hand distressed solid oak is one of our best sellers in this range, in addition we’ve noticed a real increase in the popularity of white washed flooring. Moduleo do a great oak product which looks like driftwood, and this looks beautiful with white walls and white furniture. It’s also water proof so is ideal for bathrooms and kitchens, and looks great with a victorian bath.
Reclaimed flooring, although beautiful, is very expensive and you can achieve the exact same look with a hand scraped solid or engineered wood.
Hand distressed engineered wood flooring has been deliberately damaged on the surface to make it look like it’s been through the same trials as an aged floor. It’s created by marking the wood with hammers, scrapers or even chains to cause an irregular surface. The result is a convincing distressed floor that can set off your home beautifully. And the great thing is, you don’t have to worry about marking it with heels or furniture, as any marks will just add to the beauty.
