How thick should wood floor be?
Also, is thick wood flooring better?
Thicker planks don’t offer increased resistance to impacts when objects are dropped, much like classic hardwood floors. However, because of their thickness they can be sanded down and refinished more often which means your floors will last for many more years than floors made from thinner planks.
Subsequently, question is, which wood is best for flooring? The best hardwood floors are made with wood species that are readily available and — you guessed it — very hard. Oak flooring, maple flooring and cherry flooring are all good choices. Other species include bamboo (which is actually a grass), walnut, ash and mahogany.
Correspondingly, what is the best thickness for engineered wood flooring?
Engineered flooring consists of a top layer of solid wood — the veneer. This ranges in thickness depending on the quality of the flooring, but is typically between 3-7mm, although thicknesses of up to 15mm are available.
Are wide plank floors a fad?
Wide Plank Wood FloorsThis is one trend you can expect to see every year in every style for the foreseeable future. Longer, wider planks make your room look larger, more open and less busy. But, I definitely recommend getting on board with the large plank trend!
