Design Elements

At Holz & Stein Architectural Surfaces we will embrace your vision and craft a hardwood floor, marble countertop or stone fireplace that will complement your unique style.

Hardwood Floors, Marble Surfaces, Wood and Stone

When choosing the right hardwood floor or marble surface, it may not be as easy just to select based on color alone. In fact, the small details such as construction pattern or design, hardness, material grade, edge and price all have an impact on the outcome of the final product. Consult with your interior designer and/or us to help insure your build comes out as you desire.

Types of Wood Floors, Flooring Installation Textures

Holz & Stein offers two different types of wood texture a smooth finish or hand scraped. Smooth Finished: Sanding technique creates a silky, lustrous finish that is unparalleled by any typical flat finished hardwood floor. Hand Scraped: Entirely crafted by hand, our artisans use old world techniques to sculpt each individual plank along the grain patterns to accent the natural flow and add character. Distressing, gouging and worn areas can be added bits of character included to provide just the right touch of charm and individuality. Its all up to you.

Select one of our artfully crafted edge treatments that not only adds architectural interest, but serves a utilitarian function for proper field fitting.
