Like many other home fashions, hardwood flooring has seen its fair share of trends and trendsetting. For many years, the trend in hardwood flooring had been to choose engineered, solid wood floors that offered a lower cost with a relatively simple, non time consuming installation process. However, a recent trend which has emerged in the hardwood flooring world is to move away from an easy, mass produced solution toward a more complex, labor intensive, artfully crafted solution: genuine hand scraped flooring.

Throughout the 1800’s, men would use a hand held tool known as a hand scraping knife and run it over the wood to create unmatched distresses which would highlight and flow with the natural originalities of the species. With the resulting product lasting throughout generations, owners of such hand scraped flooring could boast to house guests of the quality and craftsmanship of a hardwood floor which was hand created many years ago.
