Naturally Aged Flooring prides themselves on showcasing the natural beauty of their products. For instance, one of their top sellers called Brown Sugar (pictured below, Naturally Aged Collection) contains random width planks in every box. The boards range from 3 inch, 5 inch, and 6 1/2 inch widths, along with various lengths, which means they use as much of the tree as possible. The finished result in your home is stunning; with narrow planks installed next to wider planks, the whole floor almost transports you into forest-like feeling.
Their finishes range from smooth to deeply distressed, however the most popular and classic look is lightly to moderately hand-scraped. This flooring is absolutely beautiful. The fact that it's engineered means that it is stable and will not warp like solid hardwood. And although some people may think solid plank is better, part of this is due to the fact that it can be re-sanded and refinished, extending it's life. However on a hand-scraped product, you would not want to be re-sanding the boards since that would take away their textured appeal.
HOW IT'S MADE
Speaking of peeling. Here's a little Hardwood Flooring Trivia.
There is a difference between a sawn-faced and a peeled hardwood product. Going back to the way the wood is harvested from the trees, sawn-faced cuts do not provide as much yield but the way the grain looks is substantially better. The grains and the wood come out more rich and deeply detailed. A peeled product means the wood is peeled off the trunk in a circular motion, like a roll of tape. To compare, Hickory Natural (from the "Naturally Aged" Collection) is a peeled product with a 2mm wear layer, while the Hickory Sheffield (from the "Medallion" Collection) is a sawn-faced product with richer graining and a 3mm wear layer. Sawn-faced products are generally more expensive, since each tree does not yield as much product. From a practical perspective, both peeled and sawn-faced hardwoods are equally wonderful options, it just depends which style and budget suits your personal preference!
The Medallion Collection
This stunning collection is all sawn-faced and all exquisite. From Aspen Hills Oak, to Colonial White, to Dark Chocolate, it has high end beauty and options to suit any discriminating taste.
All Naturally Aged Flooring products come in random lengths so that natural staggering and beauty of the floor is enhanced. As genuine wood products, different board lengths reflect the variety found in nature and again try to utilize as much wood from the tree as possible. The finished effects are gorgeous and unique; not composed of equal and standardized lengths.
