Hand scraped wood. WHY?

                          Hand scraped what?! Hardwood floors? Really?                                                       

                                                                 !YES YES YES!

The technique is not altogether new in the market place but Iowa home owners are beginning a love affair with this look. Yes, the finest (wood floor) brands offer planks that are indeed, hand scraped. The scraping is done to create a warm vintage look, to give the floor “instant” character with the feel of heritage, or history.

The unique distressing holds a comfortable flavor within itself. It’s a floor that says welcome. The wood varieties selected for these planks have quite a range, as well. Stained with an intense charcoal color, for example, the floor easily moves toward contemporary tastes. One thing is certain – it is here to stay

 If you haven’t had the opportunity to see or feel hand scraped hardwoods, stop in the store and check it out!  You can also get great information from one of our lines by going to www.homerwood.com.

If you have other questions concerning hardwoods,  or engineered wood floors, or whatever – just BLOG me!

    Laminate floors are very comfortable. I doubt if she will be able to “feel” the grooves, as she might if you were installing a wood floor. Best of luck in your search!
