Wide Plank Hardwood Characteristics
By definition, a “wide plank” board is at least 5” wide, but can be much wider: there are hardwood planks that are over a foot wide. Longer lengths can be called on to create a more seamless style, while giving your space a distinguished look. Plank sizes can even be mixed together to create a customized look.
Like other natural hardwood varieties, your wide plank floor shouldn’t be subjected to excessive moisture or humidity. Options include finished, pre-finished, and unfinished planks. A professional installation is ideal, since wide-plank hardwood can be a challenging install for the uninitiated. One definitely advantage of wider planks is a simple question of economics: larger floor planks mean you won’t have to buy quite as many!
