Distressed Plank Flooring
Distressed wood planks have many good qualities. They're often eco-friendly, reclaimed wood materials. And they make an ideal floor trend fit for both modern and farm-style houses. However, they tend to be quite expensive. If you plan to install wood flooring yourself, you'll want to make sure you minimize the gaps between the planks.
