Beautiful Emphasis on the Wood

With longer and wider boards, the distinctive natural patterns and textures of the wood are more visible. Additionally, with larger wood planks, less boards are required to fill up the room. Therefore, there are less visible joints to distract your attention away from the intrinsic characteristics of the wood.

A Sense of Openness

Not only are the appearances of long and wide plank wood flooring more enhanced, the longer and wider boards can create a sense of openness, which makes a room appear bigger and more spacious. Thus, wide plank flooring is increasingly becoming a favorite, especially for large open house plans.
