Hardwood flooring in Amarillo, TX from Gowdy Flooring

Does the width of the hardwood floors matter?

One of the things you’ll find about hardwood flooring is that it comes in a variety of formats, lengths, and widths, with a wide variety of other customizable features as well. But you might wonder if the width matters, and that’s what we’re going to discuss in today’s post.

Hardwood flooring widths, and what they mean

The standard width for a hardwood floor is about 2¼ inches wide, but you have options that range from three to six inches wide as well. If a plank is five to eight inches wide, they are referred to as wide planks, but these materials can also reach fourteen inches wide if you prefer something even wider.

One of the primary benefits of using wide plank flooring is fewer seams, which means the natural lines are less of a visual interruption. In addition, since wide plank floors are also generally longer, you'll find that fewer materials will be used to complete your flooring installation.

Additional benefits include an easier and faster installation, a more natural appearance, and a space that looks large once the materials are in place. They can also greatly enhance a rustic décor scheme and increase your property value, so be sure to take the time to consider these options in your home.
