Wide Plank Flooring

Wide plank flooring creates arguably one of the most impressive wood floors and are ideally suited to the larger, free-flowing spaces so often seen in contemporary design. Such imposing planks truly accentuate a big space and create a real talking point of their own.

Of course, wide plank flooring is rather subjective term. At Havwoods we only use the term wide planks to mean one-strip planks greater than 200mm wide, although some suppliers class 190mm, or even 180mm planks as being wide. If you are looking for planks narrower than 200mm on this website, search 'wood planks' using the relevant filter for width. And if you don't see exactly what you are looking for here, some of the planks in our Henley collection are also available to order in 220mm and 260mm widths - just give us a call on +44(0)1524 737000.

Why are wood planks getting wider

Wood absorbs moisture so, depending upon the amount of moisture in the air at any given time, it can swell and shrink. And when this happens bigger boards are in greater danger of cupping, warping or gapping than smaller ones. For this reason solid wood planks are, by modern standards, usually quite narrow.

Engineering wood - creating layers with the grain of each running at right angles to the next - ensures that the wood is far more stable. And the more stable the wood, the safer it is to use it for a really wide plank.

When to fit wide plank flooring

There are absolutely no rules when using a wider plank: they look good anywhere. Although large, open spaces would appear to be their most natural habitat, planks up to 260mm wide also work well in small spaces. This is because there is a much higher proportion of wood to join so the floor appears less busy which opens up a smaller room. Always remember, whatever the grade of wood wide planks allow its natural beauty to really shine. So in a rustic or character grade plank the unique characteristics of the intricate patterns around the knots stand out, as does the elegance of the grain in cleaner planks.
