If you’re tired of refinishing your floors it might be the time to strip them down and age them. This will work in minimalist, rustic, and Scandinavian interiors. Or it could be a great exuse to change your interior style to suit the floors. This will not only change the look of your home but will also allow you to relax a little about all the little dents and scratches, pet claw marks and stains on the floor.
