Distressed Floorboards: Splurge

Whether it's color variations, old nail holes, or tiny insect borings, floors with patina harken back to earlier days and give the rooms in which they are laid a warm, rustic look.

Made from dead or fallen red oak trees salvaged from forests, this solid, ¾-inch-thick tongue-and-groove flooring is speckled with wormholes and knots. Boards come unfinished, and pro installation is recommended.

EcoAmerican Country Wormy Red Oak, 3- to 6-inch random-width boards, about $7.50 per square foot uninstalled; EcoTimber
