Laminate Edging Options
When a board has a square edge, the ends of all planks meet squarely creating a smooth, uniform surface that blends the wood floor together from plank to plank. The overall look of this floor gives a more contemporary flair and formal feeling to the room.
Bevelled edges on wooden floorboards accentuate each individual plank, resulting in a more traditional floorboard feel. Bevelled edge planks have a very distinctive, deep v-groove. They lend themselves more to an informal and country decor. The deep bevelling helps hide tiny gaps which can develop between boards.
Some people found that bevelled edges could become dust-traps, so microbevels were introduced. Microbevelled means each plank has a slightly bevelled edge. It's a subtle way to distinguish between the planks, as opposed to the deeper bevelled edge, which still serves much of the same functions.
