Nothing beats antique pine flooring for creating a warm, country feel in the home. When restoring an older home, you might get lucky and already have antique pine flooring that just needs a little TLC to be ready to live with. If you’re building new or remodeling a newer home, there are several ways to achieve that antique look when installing a pine floor.
- Use recycled lumber that has been salvaged from other buildings. Many do-it-yourselfers routinely tear down old buildings for landowners in return for the vintage lumber. In some cases, this lumber can be reused as antique pine flooring.
