Like solid or engineered hardwood, laminate comes in many different textures. The texture of a laminate floor can add a lot to any home’s décor. A smooth laminate can accentuate the elegance and a hand scraped or wire brushed laminate can add to the warmth of a more casual setting. Flowers Flooring carries a wide variety of laminate with different textures to select from.
Laminate flooring with a smooth finish is very soft and subtle and does not have deep grain texture.
Handscraped laminate flooring is the most similar in texture to real hardwood flooring. You will see knots of random scraped textures with a wider range of colors and patterns. Depending on the look you’re going for, you can find handscraped textures that are deep, or you can find softer handscraped floors that are labeled subtle scraped, that will not have as dramatic texture to them.
Laminate flooring that has been wire brushed has a soft textured finish that appears as though it was actually brushed with a metal wire. This texture option is popular in vintage styles, as it provides a worn and aged look. Wire brushing adds a lot of character to the laminate.
