Cerusing

This is a textured or 2 toned look that is achieved by wire brushing certain woods (to scrape out some of the soft grain) than staining or dying the floors and then filling in the soft grain with a different color.

Wire Brushed

The term "wire-brushed" describes a finish for hardwood flooring that involves scraping the wood planks with a hard-bristled wire brush. The result of the process is a wood floor with more texture than a typical smooth, glossy finish; the look is distressed, gently weathered, and rustic.

Handscraped

Hand scraped wood flooring is an extremely popular wood flooring option with anyone seeking something just a little bit different.  This type of wood flooring, as the name suggests is wood flooring which has been made to look old, somewhat distressed and worn, using a technique called hand scraping.  This gives the wood a sought after worn, weathered and “test of time” look.
