Smooth Finished floors
are rooted in tradition, but recognizing today's demand for livability and comfort, these floors combines the timeless, classic grace of yesterday with a fresh and innovative feeling of today. Smooth finished hardwood floors can add warm elegance and natural charm to any room of your home. Get lasting appeal and the foundation for a number of fashionable looks. More consumers than ever are taking a global view when selecting their flooring. The dramatic possibilities of such hardwood as bamboo, teak, and Brazilian cherry are bringing an entirely new look to flooring. Exotic hardwood flooring styles offer rich hues, varying graining pattern, and beautiful color variations. These unique products express elegance and style with a sense of adventure.
Hand-scraped and Distressed hardwood floors
are becoming a popular choice in today's upscale homes and commercial buildings. These floors are a newer trend but are rooted in history. Before today's modern sanding methods, floors were hand scraped on site to make the floors flat. Today's hand scraping is done to add texture, richness and uniqueness. Distressed hardwood flooring is done by machine or by hand. In an effort to reduce high labor costs, manufacturers have created machine-made distressed/scraped looking floors. These are cheaper imitations of the real thing. The problem with machine distressing is repetition of the pattern. As you look across the floor you see the same pattern repeating across the floor. This lacks a natural feel to the floor.
