Dark Hardwood Flooring

Dark hardwood floors can add a brilliant contrast to your home, especially if you have light colored furniture and cabinets. Walnut and Brazilian walnut are two of the most frequently installed dark hardwood floors. While they are beautiful, dark hardwood floors can be more difficult to keep clean.

Rustic Hardwood Flooring

Rustic hardwood flooring refers to a style of hardwood that is distinctive in its character and charm. Think idiosyncratic knots, distressed edges, and unique planks. Rustic hardwood flooring has surged in sales lately because of the uptick in farmhouse style interiors.

Distressed Hardwood Flooring

Distressed hardwood flooring could also fall under the rustic category. The purpose of distressed hardwood is to give the wood flooring a weathered look. This can be achieved by utilizing a variety of methods to emphasize cracks and holes to showcase the hardwood’s personality.

Hand Scraped Hardwood Flooring

Hand scraping is often used to give hardwood flooring a rustic or distressed look. The process involves scraping a metal tool along the wood planks to create character-building abrasions. This method is usually time consuming and best left to our professionals at Floor Coverings International Columbia.
