Walnut Wide Plank Floor

A Nashville, TN builder came to us looking for unique wide plank flooring for his spec home. He wanted a floor that would exhibit handcrafted characteristics but still complement the modern architecture of the home. The floor that our design team submitted was a character grade 9-inch wide plank Walnut floor. Walnut wood has a very regal and distinguished look, and to add the handcrafted flare we selected hand scraped edges (for a lightly distressed wood flooring look). Normally, hand scraped ends would also be chosen, but to retain a ‘clean lines’ look (complimenting the architecture of the home) we left the ends untouched. This had a terrific effect that offset the distressed look of the wood for a perfect balance.
