Hand-scraped hardwood floors have been around since the pioneering days and have never completely gone out of style. That’s because the rustic warmth and charm of a hardwood floor, gently worn by time and footsteps, has appealed to generations of homeowners.
If you want the striking looks and long-lasting performance of traditional hand-scraped hardwood, but have a busy family and a smaller budget in mind, then hand-scraped laminate flooring is an excellent alternative. These floors have the realistic appearance of their hardwood counterparts, along with the added durability and easy maintenance of affordable laminate.
Hand-scraped laminate floors have a contoured surface that looks comfortably “lived in”. Individual planks bear the subtle grooves, scallops and scrapes – even beveled edges – of an artisan’s chisel. Choose from popular wood species like oak, walnut and cherry in a variety of stains. From the pale, driftwood look of White Wash Walnut to the rich elegance of Homestead Plank – you’ll find hand-scraped laminate flooring to match any interior theme.
