Wide Plank Hardwood Characteristics
Wide plank boards typically start at 5” wide and can go up to 7, 8, 12” or even wider. Wide planks flooring also comes in longer lengths for a more seamless look. Broader widths and longer lengths give wide plank flooring distinction over narrow strip floors. Styles with mixed-width planks offer a rustic farmhouse feel, while single-width floors feel more contemporary and modern. Wide width planks are available in the same species as other hardwood floors including oak, hickory, and maple.
Wide plank hardwood, just like any other hardwood, is sensitive to humidity. Between 28 and 48 percent is the sweet spot for hardwood, but a quality hardwood that is properly milled and dried can withstand even extreme changes with little impact. Wide plank floors are also available in pre-finished and unfinished options.
Wide planks need special attention when being installed. That is why we recommend going with a professional installer. They can help you determine the type of hardwood you needs, the right subfloor, installation technique, and help to properly acclimate the floor to your home. A major advantage of wide plank hardwood is you’ll need fewer pieces for your space, which saves time during installation.
