Handscraped Hardwood Flooring vs Distressed Hardwood Flooring

handscraped hardwood floorIf you love the look of hardwood flooring with a lot of character markings then you may want to checkout some of the brands of handscraped hardwood flooring. Handscraped hardwood flooring (also called hand sculptured) has become a popular choice among homeowners wanting hardwood with the look of an old reclaimed wood floor, but with today's tough, urethane finishes. Although very pricey these hardwood floors do look stunning and give the appearance of a wood floor with a lot of rich character markings.

Handscraped hardwood flooring is created by hand using wood scraping tools to give an old wood appearance. they are offered in both solid and engineered hardwood plank construction, depending on the manufacturer. If your room is above grade and has a wood-type sub-floor than you can use either solid or engineered handscraped hardwood flooring. If humidity is a concern, the room is below grade, or if your room is on a concrete slab you must use an engineered hardwood floor. Either way, you will not be disappointed with the handscraped hardwood flooring brands.

Besides handscraped hardwood floors some manufacturers offer distressed hardwood flooring. Distressed hardwood flooring differs in that the markings in the face are done by a machine, like a wire brush. Although handscraping is more costly to create, each handscraped plank should have a more unique appearance over a machine distressed plank because of the hand scraping. Regardless which one you choose, both handscraped and distressed hardwood flooring can add a rich, elegant appearance to any room.
