Contradicting Advice on Wide or Narrow Wood Floor Planks

6 years ago

In the midst of our house rebuild, one of the questions we have is what size planks should will opt for when choosing our engineered wood flooring.

When looking for advice on this based on room sizes, we have found completely conflicting statements.

For example:

(1) attached image from UK Flooring Direct brochure, clearly advises that narrow and shorter planks make small rooms look bigger


(2) https://www.woodandbeyond.com/blog/how-wide-or-narrow-wood-flooring-will-affect-your-decor/

which states the complete opposite!

Our rooms will generally be 'mid' sized, ranging from a playroom of 3.7m x 2.6m to a living room of 5.5m x 5.7m and also a semi-open plan [(kitchen/diner) + (lounge)] of [(8.5m x 5.5m) + (5.5m x 3.3m)]

Anyone on here with a better idea than us on who is right?

Thanks in advance
