The texture of a hardwood floor can greatly enhance the look of a room. It can add to the elegance of a formal environment or the warmth of a more relaxed one. On the market, there are a number of hardwood flooring textures to choose from. To get started, here’s a fast rundown of everything you need to know about hardwood floor textures from one of the trusted bathroom renovation companies, Envy Home Services.
Wire brushing exposes the heart wood to the floor’s surface. It exposes the toughest section of the wood to achieve a warm, scuffed look. Whether using mild or harsh wire brushing, the wood’s intrinsic characteristics are highlighted. Homeowners love light, airy timber species with wire-brushed texture and low-luster finishes!
A beveled edge floor surface has an angle formed between the four sides of the planks, creating sloped edges. It creates a rustic or traditional aesthetic by separating the planks on the floor. Micro beveling is another approach to reduce sharp edges on prefinished planks. Micro bevels are prevalent in modern and transitional homes.
Hand scraping is one of the most conventional techniques to sand a hardwood floor. This procedure leaves unique grooves and streaks on the floor, giving a room an aged antique vibe. This hardwood surface texture is for those who prefer a low-maintenance floor and don’t want to worry about pets, heels, or kids’ toys scratching it. Screened patio companies suggest this textural style on hard and soft woods including pecan, oak, hickory, pine, and walnut.
A smooth sanded floor is a popular texture for on-site hardwood floors. Smooth sanded planks have a flat surface and a consistent thickness. Clean edges, wire brushing, and other unevenness are wonderful choices for a smooth textured sanded floor. This procedure needs the floor to be sanded and finished in place, which is not for everyone.
If you want a vintage or industrial look, distressed wood planks are the way to go. These little pieces are beaten against the wood plank in a spinning drum to give the texture’s unique look, which highlights imperfections and rough marks. Distressed wood is ideal for high-traffic areas, as scratches and marks simply contribute to the aged look.
