Forget the stress in worrying about scratching the floors and opt for a family friendly alternative – scraped hardwood. As crazy as it sounds these unique floors are hand scraped and distressed for a look full of character and charm. I’ve seen gorgeous homes with hardwood in the bathroom and in the kitchen and have always though “how do they do it?”
With scraped hardwood it’s actually quite possible since you don’t have the worry in damaging the floors with pets, children, or sliding furniture around a space. You can be pretty rough with these floors and put them through a lot of wear and tear unlike glossy hardwood that damages quickly with spills and scratches. The scraped wood floors completely transformed the spaces below making them look much warmer and adding a vintage/antique characteristics.
