Hardwood Floors

Hardwood Floors

Natural wood flooring is both a traditional and modern feature of American homes and the right colors and treatment can really bring your spaces together. Old Village can create beautiful and unique finishes for your floors, from historic colonial era quarter sawn wide plank floors - to reclaimed old growth wood floors - to contemporary homes with exotic (or traditional) wood.

Reactive Stains

Fuming is a reactive stain process that gives oak and other woods an aged look by causing the tannins in the wood to darken after exposure to ammonia. We can bring this same beautiful effect to your floors, walls or other surfaces in your home without the use of dangerous chemicals.

Pickling ~ Bleaching

Pickling or bleaching oak, or other light-colored woods, is a method of infusing the wood with an even lighter color – white or sometimes a very light grey – that gives the piece an almost ethereal glow like on the ceiling in this great room in Flourtown

Cerused or Liming

Ceruse was originally a lead based treatment to prevent wood from rotting that also highlighted the contrast between the wood and the grain. Old Village can recreate this beautiful finish for your floors or other woods in your home without the use of lead or other harsh chemicals
