Our hand scraped bamboo flooring lends a touch of rustic to any space, and is perfect in both contemporary and vintage settings
Sometimes referred to as distressed or antiqued floors, hand scraped bamboo flooring starts out as flat unfinished planks that are scraped on top to create rustic, beautiful surface designs loved by designers and homeowners alike. Used in both traditional and modern design, these distressed bamboo floors offer an added benefit: they show less wear and tear over time than other floors, since the hand scraping helps to hide dings and scratches.
Hand scraped distressed bamboo flooring comes in both engineered click lock as well as solid tongue and groove options and has become wildly popular over the past decade. The fact that these floors are usually much less expensive than their hardwood counterparts makes them an incredible value, with a cost per square foot that's usually $2-$10 less than hardwoods. To top it off, hand-scraped strand woven bamboo is 3 times harder than traditional hardwoods, almost always come in premium lengths and widths (wide planks, long lengths), and is made from a rapidly renewable material that regenerates every 5 years.
