Advantages & Disadvantages
When it comes to hand scraped hardwood flooring, the advantages and disadvantages are mainly a matter of taste. If you have a historic home, you probably want your hardwood floors to match the look and feel of the rest of your house. Hand scraped hardwood flooring can give you that rustic, vintage style while still having the quality and durability of new hardwood floors.
On the other hand, if you desire a modern look in your home or office, hand scraped flooring is most likely not the best product for you. “Piano style” hardwood flooring is the sleek, non-distressed style of hardwood floors that looks best with modern or contemporary interior decorating.
Due to our partnerships with leading manufacturers, we have access to the top brands and highest quality hand scraped hardwood flooring products. Give us a call today at FCI Ottawa to explore our many species, colors, and styles of hand scraped hardwood.
