Random Width Hardwood Flooring Patterns: Mixing Old and New Styles


Creating Unique Hardwood Flooring Patterns: Blending Classic and Modern Styles

At Cochran’s Lumber, we believe in crafting stories, not just floors. Every space tells its own tale, and we’ve been privileged to be a part of many such stories for nearly half a century. One of our favorite chapters is using random width flooring patterns. Using different sizes of wood planks to make a flooring pattern that feels both old-school and modern at the same time.

Why Mix Plank Sizes?

Back in the day, people used every part of a tree for their floors, which meant having both wide and narrow planks. That style is both classic and fresh, giving rooms a cool and welcoming vibe.

Combinations For Wide Plank Flooring

Decorators and flooring designers generally use a grouping of three different plank widths in their random patterns. Some of the more popular measurements include:

3-inch, 5-inch, and 7-inch
3-inch, 4-inch, and 6-inch
4-inch, 6-inch, and 8-inch

Others use groupings of two widths:

5-inch and 7-inch
3-inch and 5-inch

Our New Color Collections

Picking the wood is only the first chapter; the color is what really makes the story come to life. We’re excited about our three new collections: Mies, Ascetic, and Western Waves. We’ve also crafted 15 unique colors that you won’t find anywhere else – they’re special to Cochran’s Lumber and can match any style you’re going for.

Keep in mind, we’re also experts at crafting unique colors and finishes.
