Width Options

Wide Plank: Wide plank flooring uses hardwood planks that are at least 5 in. in width, side to side. This is a great option if you are looking to use reclaimed wood in your home or want to create the illusion of a larger space in a small room.

Flooring Patterns

Herringbone: This patter is has always been a popular option, using alternating hardwood boards in a zigzag, 90-degree angle. This can give any room a look of elegance, and has been used in castles throughout Europe for centuries.

Diagonal: These boards are laid diagonally and draws focus to the corners of rooms, making a space seem larger. They are less common in homes, so they would be a great option for anyone looking for a unique flooring option.

Flooring Custom Designs

Parquet: This type of flooring pattern is made up of multiple pieces of wood. It uses geometric shapes to make a mosaic, creating a custom and unique design for your home.
