About Distressed Wood Floors
With flooring trends pointing to timeworn and natural wood looks, distressed hardwood floors fit the trends perfectly. The word “distressed” refers to a type of surface treatment. In this flooring category, hardwood floors are intentionally distressed to create an aged and worn appearance. Distressing techniques involve the use of an embossing roll and color-washing to produce subtle character marks, pits and nail holes. Distressed hardwood floors are a good choice for high traffic areas because they help hide scuff marks and high heel indentations.
Distressed wood floors are available in both solid hardwood and engineered wood construction. Armstrong offers several distressed wood flooring collections with a variety of stains and finishes for unusual rustic looks.
