Love It or Hate It? Wide-Plank Wood Floors

There's something so nostalgic about wide-plank wood floors, and for good reason: Historically, wide-plank wood floors were found in colonists' homes in the 1600s. The wide planks were quicker and easier to plane and install, which explains their popularity. I'm a fan of wood floors, no matter their width. What about you?

I love them. Especially in a house with a cottage feel.

I love them, but I live in a brand new home, they just wouldn't look "right" in my house.

Love it! That is what I want when I have my own house.

I like the floor in the picture above, but not with the decor pictured. I think it needs to feel a bit more warm, like maybe adding color on the walls.

i think it depends on the size of the room, the 'theme' or decor and by your age.. If youre in your 20s with 5 kids i don't think it looks nice... i dont know why... maybe i'm weird. It would look great in a nautical themed house, like people said- reminds me of a boat.

For a large room they would look great. Reminds me of a boat too.

I'm honestly not sure how I feel about them. Those pictured look okay but would I want them in my home?

I like wide plank and random plank, though I wouldn't want so much of a gap in between them as you see there. That gets really messy.

My mom has them in her house; maybe it's because of this that I find them so cozy and homey!
