If you follow the latest decorating trends, you may know that textures inspired by nature are popular in home design today. Some designers even consider texture the new “color”. They suggest that bringing the textures of nature indoors has a positive effect on people. I’ve even read that homeowners are happier and healthier because a bit of nature inside their home creates a calming environment.
Armstrong has responded to this trend with a truly beautiful new hardwood collection that embodies both texture and nature. It’s called American Scrape™.
The new American Scrape collection features wide plank floors with a hand-scraped look, designed to look like vintage floors from long ago. This unique collection got me thinking about the history of scraped floors, and after researching the topic, I discovered that wide-width scraped floors were an American tradition as far back as the 1800s – when most homes had solid wood floors. Back in those days, the boards were scraped to even out the differences between the planks.
Not only does American Scrape look good, but it has an exclusive lifetime urethane finish that provides superior stain and scratch resistance. And it’s all backed by Armstrong’s Lifetime Limited Residential Warranty.
Beauty, durability, and rustic texture all captured in one hardwood collection. What more could you ask for? To learn more about American Scrape, please click here.
