Distressed Wide Planks
Wide-plank flooring is increasing in popularity, due to its beauty and fewer seams. It comes in a variety of wood types, but choose a distressed wood if you want a rustic look.  Distressed wide plank flooring is perfect for establishing a homey, intimate atmosphere, whether you’re looking to install the floor in a home, café/restaurant, or any public-facing business.

The distressed style is increasingly gaining traction in the interior design industry––it is treasured for its traditional appeal. Adding distressed flooring to a room will take its natural charm to new heights. It harkens back to a time when spaces were lit by candlelight and wood floors were hand-cut with care.

Reclaimed Pine

Most reclaimed pine comes from historical buildings. Using reclaimed pine flooring in your home has eco-friendly benefits and brings a historic touch and luxurious look to your home.  The pines gathered from demolished infrastructures were bred around the 18th and 19th centuries in coniferous forests. Those were the days when loggers cut off only trees that have grown to their maximum capacity, making them reliable materials.

Reclaimed pine is excellent for flooring, furniture, and vintage cabinets. Proper maintenance allows consumers to enjoy the patterns and hues of the wood, the same way its original owners did.

Maple Plank

This gorgeous powder room's maple flooring brings warmth against the black-and-white linear mosaic tile wall. Even though hardwood flooring isn't necessarily the first choice for bathrooms, it can work well in a powder room without a shower. Hard Maple is selected for consistent light color. Maple is one of the hardest of the North American hardwoods.

Red Oak

Red oak is one of the most popular flooring choices available because of its ability to coordinate with any design style. The reddish tones add to its beauty and its resistance to wear makes it a great option for high-traffic areas, such as a living room. A popular and attractive looking shade tree, the Northern Red Oak can be found on suburban streets across the North American continent.  Red oak has some natural colour variation and has course grain that can be quite straight or end in beautiful cathedrals.  If you like your wood with heavy grain patterns and want lots of colour options, then Red Oak is for you. The Northern Red Oak has the widest colour selection of all species.  Red Oak wood stains very easily giving you lots of colour options.


Ebonized Hardwood

Ebonizing wood is a simple way to add luxury to a space. The dark, opaque look complements many design styles but really stands out in a neutral, contemporary space. Dark hardwoods, such as oak, cherry and walnut, create the best sleek black look.  Ebonizing wood is not the same thing as simply coloring wood with ebony stain. When wood has been ebonized there is a chemical reaction that makes the material turn black. The benefit to this process is opacity. When wood is stained you can sometimes see the grain through the stain. When wood is correctly ebonized it becomes pitch black, and you won’t be able to see grain through the colour.
