Wide planks are currently trending in hardwood flooring. A wide plank is usually five inches or above.
You can even get them as wide as 10.25 inches at our showroom. Read today's post to learn about the benefits of wide plank hardwood floors.
Making a small room look larger
Because these planks have fewer visual interruptions, i.e., seams, they open up a room. As a result, the eye gets "tricked" into thinking the space is more prominent.
Wide plank hardwood flooring also works well in ultra-large rooms with high ceilings. Because of their size, they "hold their own" and don't get lost, as flooring can sometimes do in these spaces.
They look especially great in rustic decor
With their classic look, these hardwood floors work well in the farmhouse, rustic or traditional decors. Remember, though, with the right furnishings, they can work in any decor.
The natural grain and texture are more prominent. You’ll also be able to see the knots and other “imperfections” that are sometimes cut off with a narrow plank.
