Five Critical Things to consider
when buying hardwood flooring
 
Fixed vs. Variable-Width Flooring Planks

Most flooring is sold in planks of a single width. But today, many homeowners and designers are mixing flooring planks of different widths, achieving striking effects.

Palmetto Road variable-width flooring allows you to mix wood planks of 4, 5 and 6 inches together to create a unique and stylish look.

To complement the scale of your rooms, you can emphasize the 5-inch and 6-inch planks in larger rooms, and 4-inch and 5-inch planks in smaller ones. Or mix the sizes randomly and creatively for all sorts of interesting effects.

You can take advantage of the variable widths to play up architectural features of a room, such as a bay window, door, alcove or fireplace.

And, you can use them with modern wall colors, drapes, throws and furnishings to create a modern eclectic look. With variable-width flooring, you can let your creativity be your guide
