Diverse Style Options, Warm, and Natural
Choose Floor Coverings International, serving the greater Orlando and Winter Garden, Florida areas, for all of your hardwood flooring needs, including plank hardwood flooring. Plank hardwood is a type of hardwood flooring that generally describes the width of the hardwood. Plank hardwood flooring is generally used for hardwoods that come in three inches or greater in width. Narrower hardwood is called strip hardwood and is the most common wood flooring size. Wide hardwood planks are generally classified as such if they are five inches or wider. They can even be as wide as twelve inches!
This style of wood flooring, that first gained popularity in North America with the American settlers of the 17th century, who used plank flooring cut from old growth trees, has been experiencing a resurgence in the past few years. Wider planks especially are becoming popular in residential settings. In fact, there has even been a movement to reclaim planks from old buildings and repurpose them in modern settings.
Plank hardwood gives you many style options. In terms of brands, there are many to choose from. Both Shaw Hardwoods and Anderson Hardwoods, two of the primary flooring manufacturers, offer wide plank styles. Some woods are even hand scraped or distressed to replicate the reclaimed look and give the plank a vintage feel.
Hardwood plank flooring comes in a variety of species, finishes, and you can even choose your stain option. Species such as maple, cherry, oak, and birch are popular choices for Orlando, Florida homes. Plank hardwood flooring also comes in both solid and engineered wood options. Strip flooring is only used with solid woods.
Choose plank wood flooring to add warmth and a natural elegance to your home. It is a great flooring option as it can work with many different design styles.
