Hardwood flooring is a staple in many homes within the Dallas area. They give a home a classic look with rustic or modern elements. Hardwood floors are desired by many because of their durability and appearance. However, like most things within the interior design world, things change. Hardwood flooring is still a great option for the home, but the look has been altered. Many used to love the luster and smoothness it gave to the home, but now the rugged, distressed, and unpolished look is taking the design world by storm.

A new flooring type that is becoming more popular is hand scraped flooring. This technique gives a floor a worn in and rustic feel that many homeowners are after.

We wanted to let you know more about hand scraped flooring and why it might be right for your home in Dallas.

What is Hand Scraped Hardwood Flooring?

This flooring is what you would see in most homes many centuries ago. During the industrial revolution, this was a common hardwood floor to have in the home. The floor requires a master craftsman to work on each board individually to give it its unique quality. The floor contains uneven areas, knots, and markings throughout. Now, this flooring is making a comeback because it can give your home a timeless feel. With anything in life it does have pro’s and cons.

Pro’s

Antique Look

Adding a hand scraped hardwood floor to your home will give the vintage feel you have always dreamed about. This is a great option if you want an original looking hardwood floor in your Dallas home. This flooring technique is so unique and timeless that it will make any room shine. The worn and aged look is desired, don’t miss out!

Durable

Because each plank is going to have its own unique marking and it’s worn appearance it is great for families and people who are hard on their homes. You won’t have to worry about the kids, dogs, or cats running around because it already appears to be lived in. When you damage your hardwood floor from scratches and dents, it tends to add into the texture helping you with repair costs. When you have a pristine, smooth, and glossy hardwood floor you must be careful because even the slightest of scratches will be visible, and possibly drive you mad. Avoid the headache by installing a beautiful, practical, and durable hand scraped hardwood floor.

Con’s

Pricey

Because this flooring is handcrafted and each plank is worked on individually it tends to be more costly. One of the reasons is because of all the labor that is involved in crafting this hardwood flooring. People who handcraft wood with the hand scraping technique have to go through years of training to master this fine art. There is an option to get manufactured hand scraped wood, but most don’t like this option because they are aware it is not handcrafted, which makes it not as special or unique. If you are being budget conscious when it comes to your hardwood flooring, you may want to heavily weigh this factor.
