The Basics on Plank Hardwood

Plank hardwood flooring first gained popularity in North America with the American settlers of the 17th century, who would fashion plank flooring from old growth forests. Now, in the 21st century, this style has re-surged once again. Homeowners in Burnsville and across the United States are making use of plank hardwood flooring’s gorgeous looks, tradition, and craftsmanship to add timeless elegance to their homes. In fact, for some plank hardwood fans, the older the wood the better!  There’s been a recent movement to reclaim wood that’s been aged through use in log cabins and older commercial spaces or residences, and then repurpose the wood into a stylish fit for modern homes.  For those who prefer an older feel in looks alone, some styles of plank flooring are actually distressed by hand to replicate the reclaimed look and give the plank a vintage feel.
