“Through the Woods owner Chris Kritzer is a perfectionist. He hires only top notch installers who know their "craft" & do it exceedingly well. By the time the floors were installed, the word was out to all our neighbors, & we continually had friends stopping by to see what all the commotion was about. They loved our wood floors & also agreed they are beautiful!”
--Laurie C., Lutz
Wide plank hardwood flooring adds a feeling of elegance to any room. Better suited to medium and larger size rooms, wide planks are modern, yet timeless. We offer main types of wide plank flooring in a large variety of colors, tones, (light to dark) and widths. All are available with durable finishes for easy care and a long life.
Each board of traditional strip flooring is 2 ½” wide. Wide plank wood flooring varies from 3” to 12”. The wider boards allow the grain of the wood to be fully displayed so that each floor is unique. A popular choice here in Tampa Bay is random plank flooring which mixes boards of different widths within the same floor.
Distressing can add to the rustic look of a wide plank floor. Each piece can be beveled, taking the flat edges off the sides to form grooves which accentuate the width of the individual boards.
Most species of woods are offered in wide plank. These species vary in hardness, color and grain giving you the opportunity to enhance the architecture of your home and blend with your décor. You can choose a standout element, or a floor that will form at subtle background.
We love Reclaimed woods in wide plank. The aged character of these antique woods is beautifully showcased in the wider planks.
Flooring can be stained at the factory in hundreds of colors or we can mix a custom stain for you. A stain can enhance the look of any species of wood changing it to an almost white, cool, breezy look or, to a dark, exotic one. We can give you a floor that is duplicated nowhere else!
Many different finishes are available also. We offer European, penetrating oil stains which can be tinted if you would like. Traditional oil-based polyurethane is yet another choice as is water-based poly. We are one of a handful of companies in all of Florida certified by Bona to apply their durable, green finishes.
Wide plank boards are perfect in every application. We carry many choices of superior and beautiful products. As a member of the National Wood Flooring Association, we have access to the best products from the most reputable manufacturers in the world.
