There are a number of edge profile options for timber flooring planks available on the market today - from square edges, to micro-bevelled edges and bevelled edges.
Square edge: Wood flooring made up of boards with edges that have been cut to exactly 90 degrees, resulting in a perfectly square edge. Square edges on your flooring results in a flat, seamless look where all the planks blend in together to create one flat uniform surface. Due to this, square edges tend to lend themselves to more modern and minimalist-style interiors. You also eliminate the dust and dirt that can get trapped in a v-groove style floor!
Micro bevelled edge: Wood flooring made up of boards with edges that have been cut with a slight angle to them, resulting in a small 'V' shape when two boards are put together. Micro bevelled edges on your flooring enables you to distinguish between planks from a distance, without the definition being too distracting to the eye. They suit almost any interior style, from rustic to modern. Because they only have a small 'V' groove, they are not much of a problem for a dust and dirt entrapment.
Bevelled edge: Wood flooring made up of boards with edges that have been cut with an angle to them, resulting in a 'V' shape when two boards are put together. Bevelled edges on your flooring creates a lot of definition between planks and makes the different planks clearly visible from a distance. They especially suit rustic and detailed floors. Bevelled wood flooring does get a bit of a hard time from cleanliness fanatics because as you can imagine, the bevel can act as a kind of dust and grime trap. However with the right care and maintenance, this really needn’t be a reason not to choose this really attractive solution.
