Prospect Bay Hickory

Early American homes were often constructed with hardwood floors in widths of 5 inches or more. Today wide plank floors with vintage-inspired style bring a fresh approach to this charming look we love. There is a variety of modern-day options, from dark and handscraped to light and clean.

Celebrity Realtor Josh Altman says, “For many reasons, both aesthetically and practically, homebuyers are generally drawn to hardwood floors as opposed to carpet. As does anything else, flooring trends do go through some change. While hardwood never ‘goes out of style’, new homes are featuring aesthetic changes to flooring such as wider planks and different washes. Flooring choice often depends on the style of home and sometimes even the region.”

Check out what these customers had to say about their wide plank floors:

“My husband and I installed this in our formal living room a few months ago. It looks great and is holding up so well (we have a mastiff and a chow that walk on it) and we will be installing it in the rest of our house! We receive comments on it all of the time. I love the color and the handscraped look.” – Actual Customer, ID
