Deciding what type of soil to use in your new home or renovation project can be a difficult decision. Some homeowners decide to use new parquet floors, some use laminate flooring and others simply opt to leave the carpet. These are all very good types of flooring, but have you ever laid an old wooden floor?

Why would anyone want to use old wood, probably from a 19th century farm? Nowadays old wooden floors are becoming increasingly popular and new homeowners are looking for something different for their home. Something that distinguishes their houses from the neighborhood and adds a classic charm like the houses of yesteryear.

One thing is for sure. An old wooden floor is unique in its class. You can no longer access the local hardware store or hardware store and buy large planks as they were cut years ago. Today, wooden planks look different. Old wood has a distinctive look because the grain of the wood is denser. The narrowest grain is the result of slow growing trees. Nowadays wood is cut by fast-growing trees and the grain is not so narrow, which is often not as strong and has the same warm appearance as older wood.

Where can you get old wooden floors? Some companies deal with old wood for the production of soils, among other things. These companies retrieve the wood from the old abandoned structures and make it available to the new houses. Old wood is also saved from the rivers, where it sank years ago when logging.
