Floor Dimensions

Width, Length, and Thickness are essential attributes that are often overlooked, but are incredibly important, both from a functional and aesthetic perspective.

The width, length, and thickness of flooring are important to consider for different reasons:

  • Width: The width of the planks can affect the overall appearance of the room. Wider planks can make a room appear larger and more open, while narrower planks can give a more traditional or formal look. The width can also affect the stability of the floor, as wider planks may be more prone to expansion and contraction due to changes in humidity.
  • Length: The length of the planks can also affect the appearance of the room, particularly if they are laid parallel to the longest wall. Longer planks can make a room appear more spacious, while shorter planks can create a busier, more textured look.
  • Thickness: The thickness of the flooring is important for durability and stability. Thicker flooring is generally more durable and less prone to warping or bowing over time. It can also provide better sound insulation and be more comfortable to walk on. However, thicker flooring can be more expensive and more difficult to install than thinner options.
