Is Reclaimed Wood Flooring in home is a good idea?

I am going to build a new home next month and someone suggest me to install hardwood floors in my house. But I am little confused about this. I take advice from many peoples but don't get a clear answer to my query. Therefore I came here with this question and hope that I get more cleared and personal experienced based answer from my viewers. I welcome all reply with both cons and pros.

I am not clean on what your question is. Hardwood floors are nice to look at but require a lot more care and work than tile. There are several threads here about how to clean a hardwood floor and much of the advice is sound. You must vacuum or sweep them often so dirt wont scratch the wood. They do need to be cleaned with a cleaning solution made for hardwood floors. Some people use a steam mop but I have read that this may warp the floor, and I would not do this.

Best idea. Old floorboards are "colour rich", look better than new floors and stuffed with all types of protectors that were used to seal it over the years. An old but well maintained wood floor can give your home a cool classic look

In Ireland, people are buying old parquet floors from churches or schools. Very expensive stuff

Highly recommended

Depends on the quality & type of wood you are going to use. Also if its good quality and make sure it doesn't have serious cosmetic issues.

Yes, if you're going to sand and refinish them they work well.
