WOODWORKS BY TED TODD FLOORING
Antique Wood Flooring
Antique wood flooring provides a connection to the outdoors and the wonders of the natural world. Due to their rich and long lives, antique wood floors are steeped in history and authenticity, their vintage patinas evidence of both their beauty and our eco-philosophy.
We’ve been honing our craft for over 25 years, learning everything we can about bringing old wood back to life and honouring the timeless tradition of wood floor making. Take advantage of this experience, combined with our in-house Cheshire craftsmen and unique stock of antique flooring and old wood floors.
What is Antique Wood?
Antique wood is any wood that is more than a century old. Most often, it’s a type of reclaimed wood, having already had previous use in its life. But not all reclaimed wood can be deemed antique – the age of the wood must be considered too.
Antique wood flooring is desirable due to its age, rarity, condition, beauty and representation of a previous era in human history. These old wood flooring and cladding options are the types you will have never seen before.
Where is Antique Wood sourced?
Our Antique and Rare Finds have been sourced from across the globe. All sustainable, all ethical, all one-of-a-kind pieces that have been given new life.
Take our Dark Colonial Teak for example – we travelled almost 5,000 miles to source these history-packed boards from South East Asia before carefully repairing any knots and staining to create a stunning Rare Find floor.
Elsewhere, our Layton antique oak flooring brings a 17th-century oak into the modern-day with a never-seen-before old wood floor.

Benefits of Antique Wood flooring
As the wood is being repurposed, antique wood flooring has much less of an environmental impact than other floors.
Additionally, it allows the unique opportunity of owning an exceptionally rare one-off treasure with a story to tell. From French Oak to Swiss Pine, all our antique wood flooring has genuine antique certification. This ensures that the materials used to create these floors are 100% genuine.
Difference between Antique Wood Flooring and Reclaimed Wood Flooring
Antique wood is over 100 years old, whereas reclaimed wood is wood that has been used before and is being sourced and recycled regardless of its age.
Best rooms for Antique flooring
Antique flooring is suitable for any rooms and projects. The installation process works in the same way to our new floors too, ensuring there are no restrictions for laying antique flooring.
