I am remodeling an adorable home in the historic district and picking out floors. To determine the type of solid hardwood floors you should use in your home, there are a few different factors to consider. Because the house was on the smaller side with low ceilings, the clients were worried about the size of wood planks. I couldn’t help but wonder how many other people try to decide on what size and type of wood planks they should get. The plus side of wider planks is less seams and on the downside, it is more expensive. See more about what size plank you may want to use in your home in later posts.
You also have to make the decision about the type of wood, pattern, and if you want random sizes. For this post, I will only be discussing solid hardwood flooring.
