SHOP | WIRE-BRUSHED | RED OAK | SOLID HARDWOOD
Wire-brushed hardwood flooring is one of the hottest trends and is appealing and practical to more home owners because it gives the actual hardwood planks more visual interest while hiding scratches and dirt stains . The term ‘wire-brushed’ describes a finish that involves scraping the wood planks with a hard-bristled wire brush to pull out and reveal the soft grain and the heart of the wood. The result provides a floor with more texture, gently weathering it for a distressed rustic look. Mimicking the appearance of reclaimed wood or barn board, this purposeful texture is practical for areas such as the living room that get high traffic.
