Armstrong American Scrape Engineered hardwood flooring touts long-standing traditions by using construction materials common to North America. These one-of-a-kind engineered hand-scraped hardwood floors elicit the classic feel of colonial America with modern construction techniques. A distinctive grain pattern closely mimics the natural attributes of classic wood species with stunning authenticity.
The hickory and oak species this collection offers uses a refined or rustic scrape to deeply create a richly sophisticated appearance. The color palette of golds, grays, reds, and browns in the collection are specifically used with these unique scrapes to highlight the distinctive graining and knots of the wood, allowing it to illuminate its beauty through its magnificent color schemes.
You can choose from two wide plank dimensions of 5" or slightly enlarged 5.75". A broader width in plank size creates custom effects in rooms of different sizes. Either option tends to make large rooms feel cozier, while small spaces will appear bigger. You can enhance or underscore this effect with the hardwood floor color, décor scheme, and natural light exposure.
What makes the colors in this collection so exquisite?
The highly-prized grain look that creates a stately feel is readily apparent in each hand-scraped plank. For a sumptuous feel in a neutral color, turn to Amber Grain. The medium brown tones complement all shades of décor with random swirls and textures common to the Hickory species. These medium golden browns are blended to create a wonderfully content vibe that is perfect for any room. Living rooms and bedrooms will greatly achieve a balanced design in this popular model. If you're looking for a darker, more sophisticated look, the Brown Ale is what you want. This palette of light and dark hues of brown are smoothly blended together to produce an alluring chocolate finish. Look to Autumn Blaze for a darker alternative in formal spaces such as dining rooms, dens, and foyers. The darch mocha-colored planks have rich accents of wood graining and swirls that are steeped in time, presenting this hardwood to have a very lovely feel to it. You will enjoy the sense of changing seasons and fall colors that are engrained into this Armstrong flooring model.
Amongst the colors offered, Dark Lava is considered to be one of the darkest and most elegant choices offered. This extreme dark brown is a stylish departure from the rest of the shade options, as its almost ebony midnight appearance gives off a definitive charcoal tone. This is great for accenting with furnishings exuding lighter colors. In stark contrast to the Dark Lava option, Honey Bee is the lightest American Scrape color option, an ideal choice for drawing in natural light through areas with large panoramic windows and high vaulted ceilings. Overall, the genuine sense of luxury that comes from each one of these popular species such as cherry, walnut, hickory, and oak makes the American Scrape Engineered collection a popular favorite.
