Hand Scraped Bamboo

Rustic Hardwood Flooring

Think southern farmhouse chic, like something out of the Pottery Barn catalogue. Rustic interiors have certainly grown in popularity in recent years, which is why the demand for rustic hardwood floors has also seen an uptick.   Several types of hardwood would fall under the rustic category, like wide plank hardwood and distressed hardwood. Our experts at Floor Coverings International Huntsville are brilliant at matching hardwood species and plank with the rustic interiors of our clients’ homes.

Hand Scraped Hardwood Floors

Hand scraped hardwood is often referred to hand sculpted hardwood. That’s because trained craftsmen use special tools to hand scrape the hardwood planks to give them divots and scratches. The goal is to give the hardwood character and charm and to make it look much older than it is. One main benefit of hand scraped hardwood flooring is that they are truly unique. The downside? The divots and abrasions can make hand scraped hardwood more difficult to clean.

Prefinished Hardwood Flooring

When you order prefinished hardwood flooring, it will come straight from the factory sanded, stained, and treated. There are many benefits to going with prefinished hardwood flooring, including ease of installation and plank consistency.

Unfinished Hardwood Flooring

For homeowners looking for more customization, unfinished hardwood flooring may be the best option. That’s because unfinished hardwood can be stained and finished after delivery to your home. This can work great if you’re trying to match your new hardwood floors with preexisting flooring. Just know that working with unfinished hardwood flooring can be a little more time intensive. Either way, our flooring experts at Floor Coverings International Huntsville can work wonders to make your home look like that Pottery Barn showroom you’ve been dreaming about.
