hand-scraped and distressed hardwood flooring
_ Vancouver interior design has a soft spot for bringing the outdoors back home to the city and with the incredible range of distressed, character and reclaimed hardwood flooring styles available this can be easily achieved. There are plenty of style choices such as country style wide planks and smooth or handscraped floors with longer lengths and many different hardwood species to select from.
Handscraped and distressed hardwood floors offer a rustic, lived-in aesthetic. The nicks, scrapes and uneven surfaces found in these floors harken back to the wide-plank, hand-cut flooring found in old early 20th century farm buildings and warehouses.
Distressed wood can be intentional or naturally distressed. When intentionally distressing hardwood flooring, a combination of nails, chains, wire brushing and even stapling is used to rough up the wood and bring the grain to the surface. The composition of the flooring itself can be engineered or solid hardwood allowing for installation over concrete or plywood subfloors.
