Believe it or not, wooden flooring hasn’t always been around. It’s hard to imagine, we know. Cavemen weren’t worrying about whether to opt for a click lock system or tongue and groove, and the Romans didn’t have to consider that they needed to leave their solid wood floor to acclimatize before laying it. Obviously life was much less interesting without wooden flooring around, so Discount Flooring Depot compiled a delicious visual history of flooring to see how far we’ve come and revel in how lucky we are nowadays.
