You’ve probably read about my love for a good, solid, hardwood floor. They bring beauty, lasting quality and excellent value to any home or office building. Particularly when installed and maintained by a Member of the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA). And while it can be fun to design and install complicated or intricately patterned hardwood floors – for those of us who enjoy such challenges – some homes and offices simply look best with the old-world solidity of Wide Plank Wood Flooring.
Wider planks impart an almost subconscious feeling of greater space and firmer footing. The first hardwood floors installed in Castles and affluent homes hundreds of years ago, were made of thick wide planks. Warmer and lighter than stone floors, they were polished smooth, stained or oiled by Artisans and Skilled Craftsmen, and my chosen profession was born. Wide planks still carry with them those original connotations of spaciousness and rustic charm, providing a dramatic setting for every room they’re used in.
Wide Plank Wood Flooring can Save You Money
If you’re looking at hardwood floors as the best option for your new construction or remodel, and want to be as budget-minded as possible during the build-out, the relatively easy install for wider planking can mean reduced labor costs. Material costs may be lower as well, depending of course on your choice of product to be installed.
A wide plank wood floor still takes skill and experience to install properly – so as to ensure a precise fit, perfect lines, no leaks and no squeaks. There are simply fewer of them to install per room than with ordinary sized planks, which does mean less time spent in each room. Time, even still today, equals Money.
