Adding Texture to Your Wood Flooring

Adding textures involves extra processing of our unfinished boards prior to adding any finishes, with the ability to craft textures to your individual requirements.

So, whether you want a subtle fine-brush to enhance the grain patterns, a heavy-brushed texture to add a more dramatic aged look, or the rustic cross-saw marks of traditionally cut timber — we can add the perfect texture to suit your project. We even supply boards that authentically recreate the wear marks of century-old distressed flooring.

Adding a brushed texture to your wood flooring enhances your floor’s unique character.

The process involves running a wire rotary brush over the boards in the direction of the grain to remove the softer fibres of wood. This emphasises the contrast in the grain of your floorboards, accentuating the natural beauty of the wood’s structure.

We can brush your wood flooring to various depths depending on the look you want to achieve.

Fine Brushed

Adds a subtle amount of texture and charm to the surface for an elegant aged appearance.

Medium Brushed

Wire brushing goes slightly deeper into the grain to add more texture for extra character.

Heavy Brushed

A deeper double-brushing process emphasises the grain structure for a distinctive, tactile texture and a dramatic aged look.

Replicating the appearance of traditionally cut timber, our Cross-Sawn texture can be added to your flooring to recreate the unique ripples of rough sawn timber.

This distinctive texture reaches into the past with a nod to traditional timber cutting methods. The effect is raw, rustic, and eye-catching.

Sawn & Brushed

Combining brushing with cross-sawing creates spectacular texture-rich wood flooring with a flowing, non-uniform contour. The result: wood flooring or cladding which is visually dramatic and irresistibly tactile.

This is an ideal texture option for creating a relaxed coastal aesthetic, or adding a sense of laid-back luxury in any space.
