Hardwood Flooring Trend #3: Contemporary with a vintage twist

You might have seen this look in wood furniture at your local coffee shop. It is a modern spin on the old world look of wider planks, more matte and/or wire brushed/hand-scraped finishes. You will also see this look in more of our colour trends, especially the greys.   Today’s new trends in hardwood have depth with the hand-scraped look that have character and interest.  These days you don’t see a lot of shiny flawless looking hardwood floors.  Rustic, imperfections and natural looks are on trend with today’s change to a more relaxed lifestyle.

The bevels of every board are hand chiseled. All staining is done by hand to ensure that the wood will exhibit a lustre that only traditional methods can achieve.
