What to do with barn wood in family room?
We have a family room (house built in 1973) with one full wall of dark barn wood, two walls with barn wood half way up, and the last wall half brick with barn wood on top. This is on the bottom floor of a raised ranch. I need to replace the flooring and need suggestions! I am looking at luxury vinyl planks because we have had two issues with flooding now. I do not want to have to replace the floor again. Initially there was old commercial carpet, then we replaced with laminate.
The issue is color - the only thing I can find that seems to "go" ok with the dark barn wood is a dark vinyl plank. I am worried the room will be too dark but the other choices really seem to look odd with the barn wood.
Has anyone had to deal with barn wood? Painted it? ripped it out? Any suggestions appreciated...
