What is Hand Scraped Hardwood Flooring?
Hand scraped hardwood flooring is hardwood flooring that has been scraped and textured by hand to give it a one-of-a-kind and textured appearance. If you look closely at hand scraped wood flooring you'll notice that no two planks look exactly alike. It's ideal if you're looking for a rustic or "perfectly imperfect" type of appearance, or if you want to give your flooring some interesting character.
At Avalon Flooring, we offer hand-scraped hardwood flooring in a variety of colors, textures, and materials.
How to Clean and Care for Hand scraped Wood Floors
Hand scraped engineered wood flooring is easy to clean. Use brooms with plastic bristles so you don't damage the wood and use a hardwood floor attachment if you're using a vacuum cleaner. You can also use wood cleaner and mop it up with a dry mop to get that "as-new" luster back.
Hand scraped Flooring Ideas
We know it can be hard imagining your house transformed by new flooring or how each room will look once you decide to update it. Hand scraped flooring is a great way to add some texture to your space. It's versatile and can be used anywhere from Scandinavian interior design to Farmhouse.
For a more subtle look we suggest going with a lower gloss hardwood. Color will play a big part in getting the aesthetic right when working with low gloss hand scraped hardwood. Ashy and more toned down hardwood stains will give a more rustic vibe when hand scraped.
On the other hand, darker, hand scraped hardwood gives your space a more modern edge.
Higher gloss hand scraped flooring provides warmth to your home and creates a more cozy environment.
You can also fake the hand scraped wood look with vinyl, laminate or tile! This is a great option for those who love the hand scraped wood look but need some extra durability or want to place in an area prone to water exposure.
