The specialty of hand scraped wood floors


Today there are many types of flooring methods, which is a lot more than we could wish for because nearly 50 years ago there weren’t half as many methods, materials or methods of making floors. There are now different types and designs to suit every need. Thanks to different types of flooring methods, you can even get the look of a flooring method that existed years ago with the durability and strengths of modern flooring methods. Different types of flooring today include laminate flooring, vinyl flooring, hardwood flooring, marble or granite stone flooring, and marble flooring. Some of these are naturally sourced and eco-friendly, while others are man-made.

How it is done

Hand-scraped wooden floor is a kind of hardwood floor that has become more and more trendy in recent years. Their popularity is largely due to the rich and classic old-school look they offer. It looks very similar to the wooden floors in the cabins or houses from years ago. The rich and warm atmosphere it creates when matching furniture is placed is incomparable to any other positive atmosphere that interior design can provide. This type of flooring method is more expensive than other types available in the market. This flooring method is also known as hand carved wood flooring. The wood of this type of flooring is usually scraped to achieve a smoothness and a specific pattern that only scraped wood exhibits. Because of this scraping, this flooring method was given the name hand-scraped wood flooring. Nowadays, however, scraping can be done by machines without the need for humans to do it. When this work is done by machine, it is perfect, but the natural patterns (which are created due to the irregularities created by the scratches that come with working by hand) are lost. For a much more detailed and beautiful appearance, it is recommended to use human force. Hand scraping is an option that can be used on both solid wood and engineered wood to leave a mark on it as you would on an aged wooden floor.


Hand-scratched wood is usually finished with urethane, a clear substance that increases the wood’s durability. If this surface is used, no other major maintenance is required. This flooring looks best in houses built along the lines of vacation homes or in a small house. It also looks good if the interior of your house is made of wood and the rest of the furniture is modeled on it.
