Wide Plank Hardwood Flooring
Hardwood flooring is a popular choice among homeowners because it adds value and style to the home. Just like any flooring, hardwood follows trends, and those trends are time-tested. What once was a popular farmhouse trend has seen a comeback in recent years. With style options available for texture, color, species and finish, virtually any design aesthetic can be achieved — from rustic, country and traditional to urban or modern.
Wide plank hardwood boards start at around 5” wide and can be as big as 8” wide. The planks also tend to be longer which creates a seamless look. Wide and long planks give off a dramatic look. Single-width floors give off a more contemporary look where as mixing the widths can offer a more rustic feel.
There are many different benefits that come along with installing wide plank hardwood floors in your home. In addition to hardwood adding value to your home, wide plank hardwood offers visual expansion, meaning it can make your space appear bigger than it actually is. Wide plank flooring is also somewhat easier to install, because instead of two or more narrow strips, one plank takes up more space. More coverage means less planks meaning faster installation.
