Solid Wood 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 depends mainly on the kind of look you'd like to achieve in your home.

Square Edge Solid Wood Flooring

When an engineered floor 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 engineered floor gives a more contemporary flair and formal feeling to the room.

Bevelled Edge Solid Wood Flooring

Bevelled edges on engineered 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.

Microbevelled Edge Solid Wood Flooring

Some people found that bevelled edges could become dust-traps, so microbevels were introduced. Microbevelled means each engineered 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.
