If you’re in search of a beautiful, time-worn, and unique wood flooring option for your Atlanta or Buckhead area home, look no further than hand scraped, sometimes called hand sculpted, hardwood. Hand scraped hardwood flooring may have begun as a trend, but it’s one that’s here to stay. At Floor Coverings International Intown Atlanta, we’re proud to be your hand scraped hardwood flooring provider.
What is Hand Scraped Hardwood?
Hand scraped hardwood takes its name from the way the wooden planks within the flooring are smoothed. The woodworker who constructs your hand scraped hardwood will pull a drawknife over the planks to create an even surface– in the process, the wood takes on a unique, distressed, look.
While the resulting planks do look similar to distressed hardwood flooring, though, there are a few distinctions between the two flooring types. Distressed hardwood flooring is made by machines and can have uniform markings as a result; every hand scraped hardwood plank is man-made and original.
Why Choose Hand Scraped Hardwood Floors?
