Add charm and character with light wood flooring texture
Lightly texturing or distressing hardwood floorboards can add a great deal of character and visual appeal to a floor. Wood floor texture helps to give new floors the look and feel of planks that were fashioned more than a century ago, and that have been gently worn down by time and foot traffic. Light wood flooring texture infuses each floorboard with a sense of character and heritage, adding a greater feeling of charm and warmth to the room.
At Carlisle Wide Plank Floors, we offer a wide range of textured wood flooring. Our craftsmen are expert at brushed techniques and other light wood flooring texture, as well as techniques like Hit and Miss that add saw marks, rough patches and other imperfections to new floorboards. Our design consultants can walk you through all your options for a wide plank floor – from a choice of wood, grade and width of your floorboards to color, pattern and texture.
What is light wood flooring texture?
Hardwood floor texture refers to techniques for texturing or distressing new floorboards to recreate the appearance of floors that are generations or centuries old. Light wood flooring texture techniques include technologies that wear away the softer grains to give the wood an aged appearance, while heavier techniques reproduce the saw marks or kerfs left on floorboards by early sawmills as well as the rough spots and uneven patches produced by boards rough sawn at riverside watermills.

Light wood flooring texture techniques add a sense of craftsmanship and heritage to new floorboards, helping to give floors with a one-of-a-kind appearance.
Can engineered floors be textured?
Yes. Carlisle engineered flooring can be treated with a variety of textures. Engineered floorboards are constructed to provide a more stable core for installation in areas that are exposed to temperature extremes or higher levels of humidity and moisture.
Can prefinished floors be treated with light wood flooring texture?
Yes. Ordering a prefinished floor allows our craftsmen to sand, texture, stain and seal the floor before it is shipped to your home for installation. Prefinished floors let you avoid the mess and inconvenience of having a floor stained and sealed within your home.
