Extra wide wooden flooring is an interior design look that more and more people are searching for. And surprisingly, they’re not all people who have big, cavernous rooms. No. In fact, extra wide wooden flooring can look equally stunning in small rooms as it can in big ones. So, if you’re on the lookout for a wooden flooring solution that’s a tiny bit unusual, that’ll give you a look that’s truly different yet full of style and charm, extra wide wooden flooring boards might well be the solution you’re looking for.
“But extra wide boards can’t possibly work in small rooms”, I hear you say. “Oh yes they can!” The great thing about extra wide wooden flooring is that it can be used to create an illusion of space where space is, in fact, short in supply. So, for example, if you have a long, narrow room that you want to make seem wider, extra wide wooden flooring could be the right solution for you. Equally, if you have a small room and you want to give it more of a feeling of space, wide boards can help.
When it comes to choosing the right extra wide wooden flooring for your project, we think that the engineered options we have are extremely hard to beat. There are any number of reasons for this. Of course, with engineered wood flooring, you don’t have the worry of excessive expansion and contraction, so you can confidently fit your chosen floor in any room in your home. This means you can even fit it in bathrooms and kitchens where solid wooden floors normally would be a bad idea. In certain cases, you can even fit it over under floor heating, which makes it great news all round.
