Traditionally, wide planks have been one of the most uncommon options on the hardwood flooring market. However, wide planks are gorgeous, sturdy, and even have a fantastic resale value. Below are three debunked myths about wide plank flooring and why you should consider it for your home.
- You do not have to be interested in wide planks to want it
Wide planks are commonly considered to only appeal to people who go in knowing they want this type of flooring. However, wide planks offer a variety of visual benefits, such as fewer seams between the boards, and a better view of the vertical grain, that can appeal to just about anyone. Wide planks are an exceptional choice for anyone who can appreciate the look of a good hardwood floor.
- It is not the most expensive option out there
Though wide planks can be more expensive than strip wood floors, it is not the most expensive option on the market and is quite affordable for many people. If you keep your plank width on the narrower side, around 4-6 inches, prices can be significantly competitive with slimmer flooring options.
