Inspiration: Beautiful Wood Floors

Our farmhouse came with pine flooring. It wasn’t in the greatest condition and the original red pine colour, just wasn’t my thing. One of the biggest changes in our new (really old) farmhouse, is we added new pine flooring to the kitchen, sanded the old pine flooring down to a raw finish and changed the entire main floor to a grey washed pine.

I didn’t take the floor decision lightly! (no pun intended) Flooring is so important; it’s more expensive and permanent then wall colour, or furniture…once it’s in, it’s in! It’s the colour, tone and style foundation of a space. I felt the pressure of this decision, so I did my research and figured out exactly what I wanted, long before we started the process of refinishing. I didn’t want dark, or orange, not stark white (although, I do love white floor!); I wanted it kind of distressed and original looking. My best jumping off description was, the colour of drift wood. That weathered grey wood that looks like it’s stood the test of time.

Here are beautiful wood floors that I find inspiring:
