Engineered Flooring Edging Options
You may have heard the term "bevelled edge" before, but not been sure what it means. Well a bevel is one way to finish off the edges of the board. The kind of edging you should choose for your engineered floor depends mainly on the kind of look you're wanting to achieve in your home.
Square Edge Engineered Flooring
When an engineered floor has a square edge, the ends of all planks meet squarely creating a smooth, uniform surface that blends the engineered flooring together from plank to plank. The overall look of this floor gives a more contemporary flair and formal feeling to the room.
Bevelled Edge Engineered Flooring
Bevelled edges on engineered floorboards accentuate each individual plank, resulting in a more traditional looking floor. 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.
Microbevelled Edge Engineered Flooring
Some people found that bevelled edges could make their engineered floors 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.
