Here at Floor Coverings International Chapel Hill, we provide high quality flooring in hundreds of different styles. Plank hardwood flooring is surging in popularity with Chapel Hill, West Durham homeowners. Plank hardwood flooring refers to any hardwood that comes in a width greater than three inches. Hardwood plank flooring comes in a variety of species, styles, and finishes.
This unique and trendy style of wood flooring first gained popularity in North America with American settlers in the 17th century, who used cut plank flooring from old growth forests. This style has been experiencing a renaissance in recent years. Wider planks, which can be up to 12 inches in width, are becoming increasingly desired in the modern home. There has also been a movement to reclaim planks from old buildings and log cabins and re-purpose them in modern settings.
There are many different options when it comes to plank hardwoods. Some styles are 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.
