Mix and Match: Creative Design Ideas for Incorporating Reclaimed Engineered Wood Flooring

Sustainability is the choice we consciously make every day to help our planet, and it’s not an easy one to make. Going green affects most aspects of our lives, including the way we build and design our homes. If you’re an environmentally conscious homeowner or just a person who’s had to deal with construction and renovation, you’ve probably heard of reclaimed engineered wood flooring – one of the most popular trends in interior design today.

If you’re someone who looks to use this equally appealing and sustainable material for your home design, this blog is for you – we’ll discuss several creative ideas that will inspire you and help you seamlessly incorporate reclaimed engineered wood flooring into your interior.

Why Choose Reclaimed Engineered Wood Flooring?

Before we move on to discussing specific design ideas for your house, let’s talk about the benefit of reclaimed engineered wood flooring and how it will equally benefit you, your home, and the planet.

Environmentally Friendly

Each piece of reclaimed wood at The Main Company is salvaged from older buildings, such as barns or warehouses. Switching to this particular material automatically decreases the demand for fresh timber, meaning that they contribute to reducing deforestation, making reclaimed wood one of the most eco-friendly choices.


Reclaimed wood is used as the top layer, as it’s extremely resistant to warping and splintering. It can even withstand fluctuating temperature and moisture levels, which can be so important to any homeowner living in the UK. The layers beneath the surface add to the structural integrity and longevity of the floor, easily withstanding daily use even in the most high-traffic areas in the house.

Low Maintenance

Reclaimed engineered wood flooring is relatively easy to maintain, however, regular care is still required to keep it looking fresh. You can simply sweep or vacuum the floor as needed, and use a wood floor cleaner for occasional mopping. The need for repair and reconstruction is also quite low, as you can use a durable finish on the top layer to protect against scratches and other wears from the daily use.

Design Ideas

The beauty of reclaimed wood at The Main Company is that its every grain and knot tells a story. The age and the history of reclaimed timber adds to the overall aesthetic appeal of your home, creating a specific type of ambiance fitting both vintage and contemporary styles. The variety of finishes, colors, and textures allow you to create one-of-a-kind, versatile interior design that adds the character to any room.

Rustic Charm

Rustic-inspired decors are always cozy and inviting, creating a sense of connection to the nature. What can be better for this natural but a simple, non-complicated style than reclaimed timber? This material allows you to bring the nature into your home, while perfectly complementing the soft textiles, warm lighting, and comfortable vintage furnishing.

Incorporating reclaimed engineered wood flooring into your rustic home brings an additional layer of warmth and comfort, almost evoking the feeling of nostalgia, while simultaneously urging you to reconnect with nature.  


Raw materials, exposed structural elements, an overall utilitarian aesthetic – these are all characteristics of industrial style. At the first glance, it might not seem completely logical to incorporate something as natural as reclaimed wood into such interior, however, the versatility of this material guarantees its merging with almost any architectural or decorative style.

Reclaimed engineered wood flooring complements the exposed materials and rough textures that are associated with industrial style. The aged, weathered look that this type of flooring tells a story of the materials’ previous lives, adding the character and creating a generally cohesive interior for any room.

Eclectic Mix

As the word itself tells us, eclectic mix in interior design is a combination of different styles, both old-fashioned and modern. When mixing different styles and materials, it can be easy to get lost in various types of colors, textures, etc. Therefore, it’s extremely important to have one part of the room that ties everything together. Reclaimed engineered wood flooring will definitely be your best friend when it comes to designing an eclectic interior, creating a visually rich environment where every element is interconnected.

Final Notes

The decision you make when choosing reclaimed engineered wood flooring for your home is about much more than just interior design – it’s a commitment to sustainability. This material allows you to create a unique aesthetic, resulting in an inviting, cozy interior, while also not compromising the future of our planet.

Regardless of whether you choose industrial or rustic styles, reclaimed engineered wood flooring is guaranteed to make your life easier – it’s extremely durable, withstanding daily use for years, aesthetically pleasing, and environmentally friendly.
