Hardwood floors have always been one of the most coveted floor coverings for their attractive timeless beauty and simple cleaning. Even so, hardwood flooring manufacturers continue to raise the bar and create innovative hardwood floors with advanced functionality and fresh new styles.
The latest wood trend that has been captivating homeowners is long and wide plank hardwood flooring. This new style offers a modern twist to traditional hardwood floors.

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.
