Hard wood flooring widths which is better?

solid wood flooring Add comments

I have been looking at solid wood flooring and I have noticed some have different widths. Which is better the smaller width or the bigger ?

The one you like is the one that is better.
Advantage of the basic 2 1/4 " wood is that it is massed produced and is generally cheaper in price.
The wider planks up to 5" can be installed under normal conditions, and when installed right won t cup.
6" planks and larger tend to cup over time in higher humidity climates.
Any questions you can e mail me through my avatar. GL

    the one with the bigger width because it is larger while the one with the smaller width is long and it may not fit to your house while the other one may fit anywhere and you can cut it

    The larger widths tend to cup and crown over time.

    As long as they are installed properly each is just as good as the other…depend on the look you are going for
