Here’s a suggestion for you: antique wooden beams!

Still not convinced?

In this article, you'll learn everything there is to know about antique wood.

Let's Talk About Antique Wood

Antique or reclaimed wood is sourced from old or demolished buildings. Thus, antique wood doesn't come directly from trees or trunks, but rather from a tree's pre-existing covering.

The aim in processing this wood is to enhance the allure of the reclaimed timber and to round off some of the imperfections that time has left behind.

How Is It Processed?

Among the main techniques for working with antique wood, we mention:

  • patination
  • stratification of slats
  • Well-known restoration
  • Surface treatment and finishes.

These are processing techniques also applied to new wooden floors, used in antique wood to preserve all the grains and its charm as a lived-in wood.

Of course, damages like holes from woodworms or mold stains will be removed, but the grain and color changes that have occurred over time will remain intact, lending all the charm and warmth of respectable wood!

Exploring the Benefits of Antique Wooden Beams

  1. The processing of antique wooden beams aims to preserve the original characteristics of the reclaimed wood. Does this mean your wooden floor will smell old? Not at all! The antique wood floor will forever retain its antiquity, but with the tones and finishes of a high-quality product that maintains the charm of the past without its flaws.
  2. The only difference between antique and new wood is that antique wood is cut in forests, while new wood is reclaimed from the roofs of old, unused farmhouses.
  3. Working with antique wood is an ecological choice.

  4. Processing antique wood does not entail a surcharge in the floor's price. In antique wood, the beams are already available, reclaimed from pre-existing coverings, located in the wood processing areas.
  5. The processing of antique wooden beams makes this material ideal for any setting, from the most classic to the most modern. All you need to do is choose the ideal essence and grain, the thickness, and your preferred laying style, and the antique wood floor will decorate any space: at the seaside, in the mountains, or in the city.
