The History of Wide Plank Hardwood

Historically, the wide plank wood style came from the American settlers of the 17th century, who used cut plank flooring from old growth forests. Now, in the 21st century, this style has become popular 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. Homeowners love using reclaimed and distressed boards since the wood has a rich history and shows character.
