Wide Plank hardwood flooring is trendy and timeless. Where wide plank flooring is installed, it’s often one of the first things a person notices when walking into a room as it easily becomes a focal point.
Wide plank wood tends to make the rooms look and feel larger. No matter how big the space, the more seams shown on a floor, the busier the space looks, making a room actually feel smaller and cluttered. Wide planks offer much fewer seams, leaving you with the natural look and beauty of the actual wood and its grain, instead of distracting lines.
What is considered wide plank hardwood?
So you may be asking, what is “wide plank hardwood?” Unlike 2 1/4” and 3 1/4” hardwood flooring, which is most often referred to as strip flooring, wide plank hardwood is usually considered 5” wide and above. Many manufacturers will mill 6”, 7”, 8”, 9” and 10” for special order. So if you’re looking to add something special to your home, having a wide plank hardwood floor custom-milled for your home is definitely one way to go.
