Wide Plank Flooring Options

Wide plank flooring options can offer an alternative to any interior style – including urban, country, or traditional.

We often associate wide plank flooring with rustic cottages or colonial-era farmhouses, but that doesn’t mean it can't be stylish in today's modern homes too! With so many options available in terms of size, color, species, finish, and construction, virtually any design aesthetic can be complemented with wide plank flooring.

Wide Plank Flooring Options

Sizes – “Wide plank” usually means boards that are 127mm in width, and plank lengths tend to be longer, too, creating a more seamless look. It's in these broader widths and longer lengths that wide plank flooring gains its drama and distinction over narrow strip floors. Mixed width planks offer a rustic feel, while single-width floors lend themselves to a more contemporary environment.

Species – Popular species such as rustic oak, mahogany, bamboo, and rustic cherry from our Natural Elements Collection are versatile wide plank flooring options that complement most cabinetry and home furnishings. Exotic species have a richness and excitement that “pops” in any space, so wider planks show off more of their great features.

Construction –Engineered hardwood is real wood flooring, but it’s more stable than solid wood and less susceptible to shrinking and expanding. You’ll find lots of options in engineered wide plank flooring, especially in our Lifestyle 14mm Collection.

Use wide plank flooring as the centerpiece of your space. The width of the individual boards will have a dramatic influence on the look of your floor and the overall design of your home.
