For the complete renovation of their Bryn Mawr, PA house, the Lynch family wanted flooring that would fit in with their rustic aesthetic and their goal of creating a restored carriage house style. According to Deb Lynch, “the floors go a long way in creating an environment that looks well-loved and lived in,” and guests frequently think that the flooring is original to the house rather than a new, custom floor. The Lynch family chose to work with Wide Plank Floor Supply to create a custom wide plank floor which would fit in perfectly with the style they had already gone great lengths to create with their other renovation efforts.
They ultimately chose a skip-planed, live sawn prefinished white oak floor that they completely customized by working with Wide Plank Floor Supply. The flooring includes planks with variable widths––4”, 6”, and 8”, and lengths varying from 2’ to 10’. The skip-planing process created deep circle saw marks which enhance the character of the floor. The Lynch family chose a dark cinnamon brandy color for the custom stain, which imparts the room with a feeling of warmth.
