Diverse Style Options, Warm, and Natural
Choose Floor Coverings International, serving the greater Concord, California area, 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. Hardwoods that come in three inches or greater in width are generally classified as plank hardwood flooring. Narrower hardwood is called strip hardwood and is the most common wood flooring width. Wide hardwood planks are generally classified as such if they are five inches or wider. Some planks 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 Concord, California homes. 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. You can even find hand scraped or distressed styles that 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 Concord, California homes. Plank hardwood flooring also comes in both solid and engineered wood options. Strip flooring is only used with solid woods.
