Wide Plank Hardwood Flooring: Everything You Need To Know


The Premier Trend in Flooring Today

Wide plank hardwood floors are the most sought-out flooring type today – and for good reason. Wide plank floors captivate the senses, emitting an aura of calmness and order. They are also highly unique compared to the traditional flooring styles that have been popular over the years – making them stand out in any space.

What is considered wide plank flooring?

It is generally considered that wide plank hardwood floors start anywhere from 5″ in width and above. However, floors that are truly embraced as wide plank floors are generally 8.5″ and above. 

This is in comparison to narrow plank hardwood, which can have widths as small as 2″ to 4″ wide.

Both wide plank and regular sized planks can be used interchangeably across different rooms, depending on the specific style you’re aiming for.

Sophisticated Rustic Charm

Wide plank floors go well in just about any space. However, they are the flooring type of choice if you are going for a classic rustic feeling. Wide plank floors, that are specifically manufactured to highlight the wood’s natural properties, can transform you to feeling like you’re in a rustic cabin – emitting sensations of calmness and nature.

Ideal For Large Spaces

Wide plank floors add depth, especially to large spaces, creating a brilliant look of openness. They are great for large open concept spaces, creating a wholesome integrated perception.
