Hand Scraped Hardwood Flooring Offers a Unique and Timeless Look for Any Room
Hand Scraped may sound a bit rough, but the finished product, once sealed, is as smooth and watertight as any machine finished planking. The difference is in the preparation of the boards themselves. The term “hand scraped” refers to the type of surface treatment in which the hardwood has been hammered, chiseled or sculpted by artisans using a variety of tools to create floors which have natural-looking indentations and a vintage appearance. While this kind of finish is characterized by the appearance of aging, they can be brand new floors finished in today’s most popular colors, making hand scraped hardwood floors adaptable in any room of your home or office.
Hand Scraped Flooring Brings Out the Truth of the Wood
Every plank of every tree used to make your hardwood floor has a graining pattern as unique as your own fingerprints. While specific types of wood have very distinctive compositions which make them easily discernible from other types of hardwoods, the individual texture, grain, knots and natural characteristics of the specific set of boards you have in your flooring make them singularly special. Distressing, Aging or Antiquing your hardwood flooring simply brings out the individuality of every square foot of your floor, adding sophistication or a feeling of lasting permanence, depending on what you’re trying to accomplish as an end result.
Hand Scraped Laminate Flooring is an Affordable Option
Laminate Flooring may lack the thickness and long term wear-ability of genuine hardwood flooring, but it does have the advantage of a smaller price per linear foot. The look and feel, once installed professionally, is virtually indistinguishable. Laminate manufactures use a variety of hues and grain patterns to mimic authentic hardwoods, which can allow you to obtain the rich, aged textures you’re looking for, even if you’re working with a stricter budget.
