Reclaimed and distressed wood has made a comeback. Industrial design trends and home improvement shows like “Fixer Upper” and “Property Brothers” have brought a revival to reclaimed and distressed wood accents in homes. Reclaimed and distressed styles are found in cabinetry, furniture and flooring.
Homes that were originally built with hardwood floors can develop a beautiful patina over years, but installations can have the same rustic, yet modern charm. Using Luxury Vinyl Plank instead of hard wood has many positives. Vinyl is very durable and will outlast hard wood with little to no maintenance.
Where to Install Distressed Luxury Vinyl Plank
Luxury Vinyl plank flooring can be installed in any room of your home. From the family room to the mud room, it’s durable and fashionable. Luxury Vinyl distressed look-a-like products can be used in kitchens and other areas where water may be present, where as hardwoods wouldn’t be recommended due to the moisture.
Choosing a Style of Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring
Vinyl flooring comes in a variety of textures and colors. Choose a color of flooring that appeals to you and your preferred style of décor. Browsing images online and sorting them into “like” and “dislike” categories can help you narrow down the style of room that makes you feel most at home and determine what flooring finish works best for you. It’s also helpful to speak with a specialist who can offer advise based on your lifestyle and deeper product knowledge.

The distressed look can be a very versatile canvas on which to design your rooms. Medium and darker floor colors pair nicely with lighter furnishings and fixtures, giving warmth to a space. Light colored distressed wood pairs well with darker furnishings and creates a more open, airy space. When choosing your flooring, it can be helpful to consider contrast with your furnishings.
If your style is more rustic or industrial, a greater grain and distressed texture is welcome. If your style is traditional or serene, less dramatic textures are desirable.
