5' vs 3' pre finished Jatoba planks

Posted by wanttogarden (My Page) on

We finally decided on pre finised smooth natural Brazilian Cherry. I don't know the sheen, it is not super glossy but it is not matte either.

Now I cannot decide on plank width. It is for a 500 sqft area: two 10x10 bedrooms, 16x18 mBR and a hallway 20x3. Should I go wide to be trendy or 3" to get more color variation?

Thank you,

Oops! I guess I need to learn to use Shift button 5" vs 3".

RE: 5' vs 3' pre finished Jatoba planks

Personally, I prefer 3" in a smaller room. I'm planning to have wood flooring stalled in two small rooms (total 380 sq.ft.)and will definitely go with 3". But the selection seems to be limited for prefinished, engineered in this width.

Thank you. I just ordered the 3". Cannot wait till mid May when the job will be done. I will try to post photos.
