Hardwood is timeless, beautiful, and looks great in any room! We provide high-quality flooring with hundreds of different styles and plank hardwood flooring is one that is in demand! Plank hardwood flooring is generally the term used for any hardwood that comes in a width of three inches or greater. It comes in many different varieties such as maple, cherry, and oak.

This style of wood flooring first gained popularity in North America with the American settlers of the 17th century, who used cut plank flooring from old growth forests. Now, in the 21st century, this style has re-surged once again. Wider planks, which can go up to 12 inches in width, are becoming increasingly desired in residential settings. In fact, there has even been movement recently to reclaim planks from old buildings and log cabins to re-purpose them in modern settings.

If you like the wide plank hardwood look, there are many different options. Some styles are actually distressed by hand to replicate the reclaimed look and give the plank a vintage feel. We even have wide plank laminate flooring if you’re on a budget!
