A brushed wood floor has a textured look on its top layer which is created by passing a wire rotary over its surface to remove any soft grains. Brushed floors can range from lightly textured to heavily textured and so can fit any style. While textured floors have always been around, this style has become more and more popular in 2018 and with good reason!
Brushed floors offer a more natural look and can add character to a space. This style is perfect for those who want their floor to be a feature of a room, instead of a simple canvas on which to showcase their furniture.
Because of their textured surface, brushed floors hide scratches and scuffs easily, meaning that they are much longer lasting than smooth, lacquered floors. This offers the homeowner peace of mind, especially if there are kids and pets in the home! This is the reason why so many people opt for brushed floors in kids' rooms and areas of high traffic.
Aside from this, brushed floors offer an element of safety to the home, as they naturally have more grip and so slips and falls are less of a worry.
We at SL Interiors believe that this trend is here to stay. So if you're searching for a more natural, long-lasting look, check out our extensive range of brushed floors here!
