Wide plank flooring is one of the longest lasting trends in residential flooring. Flooring boards that have a width of five inches or more are commonly referred to as wide plank flooring, and are available in both solid wood or engineered hardwood varieties. Keep in mind that the wider you get with solid wood the more risk of cupping or gaping, engineered is a preferred product if you are looking for wide boards because of it's stability.
Wide plank hardwood offers a unique look that mimics the type of flooring found in prestigious historic properties as well as country farmhouses. We recommend the use of wide plank wood flooring in larger rooms of your home so that the width of the floor planks is proportionate to the size of your space.
