Family Room & Bar | Wide Plank Maple "Antique"

This client no longer wanted carpet in their lower level. They chose a hardwood floor with an old-world style that would look rustic yet traditional with their furnishings. This wood is a wide plank maple (8" wide) with an antiqued stain treatment (called a "french bleed.)" This treatment leaves the edges and the pits darker than the overall color of the plank.

Wider planks make a room look larger versus smaller planks. The hand-scraped and wire brushed distressing lends a certain amount of "charm" to this space.
The imperfect character will also help to hide a lot of sins. To keep everything harmonious we decided to install the same wood on the steps.
