What Is Smooth Flooring?

Smooth wood floors represent a traditional look of a hardwood floor that has been used in houses and structures for hundreds of years.  A smooth product captures its look from the character and grain of each individual species with out added textures by an individual or machine.  Smooth products are available in a number of species, widths and grades in both solid and engineered hardwood flooring.  Boardwalk Hardwood Floors carries a wide selection of wood flooring in our showrooms in the St. Louis and St. Charles area.
