The New Vintagetexture-stadelbretter-vertikal-11LR0143S

The year 2016 is all about floor’s authenticity. The natural look of distressed wood its influencing this year’s trends. Think rustic homes in the 1800s, vintage floor wood style is reemerging and it’s one that can be achieved through different ways. The wire brushed technique is one of them in which the wire brush scrapes the wood leaving only the hardest and more rustic part of the wood exposed. This allows for the wood’s natural texture to come to life. Handscraping is another technique used by professionals like Selecta Flooring. With this technique, flooring experts work along the customers side to achieve this vintage look for your floors.
