21 Feb Designer Barnwood…yes, it’s a thing!
We have been in this business long enough to know that super rustic just isn’t for everyone. Most of our customers come to us with their own very specific ideas of how they want their project to look, and we are happy to oblige!
At Historic Flooring, we really do build each project “one plank at a time”, whether it be flooring or wall treatments. Our “Designer Series” barnwood is a perfect example of just how creative some of our customers are. We take our reclaimed barnwood and embed specific colors into the wood. Sometimes a little, sometimes a lot!
We start by talking to the customer to get an idea of what they are thinking. Next, Steve will send pics and videos so they can see the different kinds of wood we have. After the customer decides on the wood, any colors are discussed, including how bold or subtle they want it to look…i.e. solid color to just a trace left behind in the grain.
Here are a few examples of our Designer Series Barnwood:
This is one of our first “Designer Series” projects. The customer wanted an accent wall that would not make the room look too “dark”. She wanted to play off the color she already had on the walls and ceiling, and a pop of white to go with her trim:
This customer was a big fan of Harley Davidson, so we worked the famous black, white and orange into her herringbone project!
Here is one we are working on right now…CRB Electrical is re-doing their offices. They want to highlight the company colors of red, black and silver as you can see in their signage and carpet. We are making custom end trim to match!
…and then there’s Sunny from Chicago 🙂 She wanted all the colors!
Steve explains a little more…this is mainly how he communicates with the customer throughout the design process!
