The width of hardwood flooring planks is more about design than functionality. Please continue reading to learn more.

The old-time charm of wide planks

Wide planks are traditional but versatile enough to work with any decor, including modern. They also make a room look larger, with fewer seams, i.e., visual breaks.  

Because of their size, there's more opportunity to display the characteristics that make wood floors so unique. These include things like knots, grains, swirls, and growth rings.

Narrow planks can make a small room look larger

Narrow planks can also visually enlarge a room. They have a more contemporary feeling, but, like wider planks, they can work with any decor with the right furnishings and accessories.

Narrow hardwood flooring widths tend to look more formal and sophisticated, giving it a style especially appropriate for traditional interiors. Depending on the color, they can make a room look subtle, airy, or stunningly dramatic with striking lines.

How wide is wide? 

Generally, a plank is considered wide if it’s more than five inches. Come in to see us when you are looking for hardwood flooring in Keller, TX, and you’ll see some as wide as 14 or 15 inches.

What if I think my room is too narrow for wide planks?

Think about random width. Designers use them to create patterns and unique arrangements that make the smaller room seem larger and airier.
