Laminate flooring plank length can vary among manufacturers and plank styles. However it is not a commonly asked measurement when purchasing laminate flooring. Most commonly, people will ask about laminate flooring’s plank width, thickness, and AC rating before they ask about the laminate floor’s length. This does not mean that laminate flooring plank length isn’t important. All of these things combined create the whole look and feel of the flooring.
If you are interested in purchasing a specific laminate flooring plank length, be sure to read the product specifications. This is where you can find exact length measurements. On average, planks are around 48 inches long but can vary between manufacturers and even floor styles.
Which Laminate Flooring Plank Length is Best?
There is no recommended laminate flooring plank length, it’s all based on the look and feel you are trying to achieve. Each floor is manufactured with the final outcome in mind. If the floor is mimicking hardwood, the planks will be longer and if the flooring is replicating a tile, the plank will have more square dimensions. Armstrong has even developed a multi-length laminate flooring plank, which replicates the random length that hardwood flooring comes in.
If you are working with a small space, look for a floor that has shorter or average sized length planks as they will give your space a larger and more complete appearance. Larger spaces can handle longer planks, which can accentuate the space and add an airy feel to the room.
You can’t go wrong with any length of plank you decide to choose. It’s all based on preference and the look you are trying to achieve in your room!
