Hardwood flooring: Wide or narrow planks?

When considering hardwood flooring, you may not have any specifics in mind. But as you seek options, you'll see wide and narrow plank floors and wonder which is best.

Each width has its benefits, but one will likely serve you better than all the others. Understanding the characteristics of each one can help you find the results you need for any space.

Wide plank benefits


A wide-plank installation is perfect for rustic décor, especially with certain textures and finishes. You'll also find fewer seams in a wide plank installation for wood flooring that’s faster and easier to install.

Since they offer a faster installation, you'll save money on the service while adding value to your home, giving you twice the benefit in a single opportunity. They also add dimensional stability and make smaller spaces look more prominent, with fewer seams to interrupt the line of sight.

Narrow plank benefits


One of the best benefits of narrow plank products is that they are less likely to buckle or warp since there's less surface area to contract or expand. In addition, you'll appreciate the opportunity to include more intricate woodworking and wood flooring craftsmanship during the installation, so learn more while you’re here.
