Tips from the Table: Blending products to create a salvaged look

Karndean Designflooring

Salvaged and reclaimed looks are dominating home décor and furnishing trends, and floors are no exception. We carry a number of designs and colors that match this style, including the newest additions to our Da Vinci, Van Gogh and LooseLay Longboard ranges.

Blending products allows you to create a unique look without worrying about the lead times or price tags associated with a custom order. It also allows you to come to a happy medium if you’re torn between more than one color; enabling you to update your look without changing your entire style or existing furnishings. Reclaimed wood is sourced from a number of different locations, and features high color variation, which is a look that blending can help you achieve.

Bring your barnwood design to life by blending our Reclaimed Redwood VGW99T and Salvaged Redwood VGW101T, as shown below. This is a stylish option if an all-gray look is not for you. Alternatively, if you're looking to embrace this hue, you can pair Salvaged Redwood with our Aged Redwood VGW100T.

If your style is mid-century modern, you can keep the traditional feel while still incorporating a rustic look by combining our Blended Oak RP95, Beach Driftwood RP101 and Double Smoked Acacia RP105. Each of these looks are from our Da Vinci range, featuring 36” x 3” planks - a classic hardwood plank size. This mid-century modern rustic look allows you to update your room design, without the need to change your existing decor.

Looking for a rustic floor to match your Scandinavian style? The key to getting the Scandinavian look is introducing natural woods throughout the space! We suggest blending Limed Linen Oak RP98, Limed Cotton Oak RP99, and Coastal Driftwood RP100 to achieve the perfect "Reclaimed Scandi" look.

A more design-forward trend that we’re seeing in commercial projects is rustic patchwork (which is toned down here for homeowners). The advantage of this look is that it gives the design continuity, allowing you to stay a little more traditional with just a hint of gray. You can see this effect below with our combination of Pale Limed Oak KP94, Mid Limed Oak KP96, Classic Limed Oak KP97, and Aged Oak KP98.
