Wide plank hardwood flooring was once a popular choice for farmhouses. However, wide plank hardwood floors have seen a resurgence over the past few years. Practically any design aesthetic can be achieved from rustic, country, and traditional, to urban or modern depending on your choice of texture, color, species and finish. For example, styles with mixed-width planks offer a rustic feel, while single-width floors feel more contemporary.
Wide plank flooring features board widths of approximately 5 inches and can go up to 10 or 12 inches in width. Broader widths and longer lengths give wide plank flooring drama and distinction over narrow strip floors cumulating in a historic style that can feel both sophisticated and rustic.
Combine wide plank flooring with hand-scraped texture for a style that is reminiscent of boards carved with hand-held tools. Other textures can be perfect for highlighting natural wood characteristics such as knots and filled splits, or re-creating a weathered or time-worn look.
Like old people and old dogs, reclaimed hardwood flooring has a story all its own. Whether you're building a rustic retreat or a modern urban dwelling, reclaimed hardwood flooring helps to create a lasting, unique space.
The stories are as varied as the planks; no two pieces of reclaimed wood are exactly alike. Whether from and old barn, factory, warehouse, or stable, reclaimed hardwood flooring has one thing in common and that is that it was harvested decades or even centuries ago. Aged wood offers a natural, authentic weathered color and patina, and exceptionally tight wood grain that cannot be duplicated today.
