What Plank Size Is Ideal For Certain Room Size?

The general rule of thumb here is the bigger the room, the bigger the plank size. Most laminate designs range between 5” and 8” planks, but may be broken up within the plank to have the appearance of 3” boards. If you have a large room with 3” planks, this is going to look extremely busy. Use 3”-5” wide planks to help open up smaller areas, while larger rooms tend to look better when you use 6”-8” planks.
