Buying Wide Plank Hardwood Flooring
Our goal is to make it easier than ever for you to find the perfect wide plank flooring option for your home. Follow these easy steps to get started today!
1. Think About What You Want
To start, think about what material you want for your new flooring and what you want it to look like. If you want a light, creamy color with naturally occurring flecks in the design, white oak could be the perfect choice for your home.
If you’d prefer a naturally darker flooring option with beautiful straight grain, then black walnut might better suit your aesthetic. Take some time to explore different wide plank flooring design and pricing options to see what appeals most to you.
2. Schedule a Free Consultation
Once you have a better idea of the type of wide plank flooring you want, it’s a good idea to set up a free consultation with our experts at Oak & Broad. During this time, we’ll talk to you about your design ideas and the most important things you want out of your new flooring.
We’ll also be happy to answer any questions you have and make recommendations about which flooring options we think will work best in your home.
3. Request Flooring Samples
During your consultation, we’ll help you decide which samples best fit your aesthetic. We’ll then send them to you so you can see what they look like in your home. Once you receive your flooring samples, we recommend taking them to different areas of your home at different times of the day to see how they look in different lighting.
You can also see how they feel under your feet to ensure you’ll be happy with the final product you choose.
4. Talk With Your Designer and/or Installer
Before you make a final decision on which flooring to choose, we recommend talking with your interior designer, if you have one, to see if they have any insight to consider. You may also want to chat with your floor installer to see if they have any recommendations before you place your order.
5. Wait for Your New Flooring to Arrive
After you make your decision and place your order, you’ll have to wait for your flooring to arrive, which is often the hardest part of the process! We proudly ship anywhere in the country, using secure shipping methods so your floors stay protected during transit.
6. Have Your Floors Installed
Once you receive your wide plank flooring, you can work with a local flooring contractor to install them in your home. After the installation is finished, all you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy your new floors.
