The unparalleled beauty of Gnarly Plank Floors

August 1, 2016

Hardwood floors have always been popular flooring choices for homeowners – and with good reason. They are incredibly versatile and durable, making for a convenient foundation that can be used throughout the entire house. However, as with any type of product, quality matters. The expert craftspeople at Anderson Hardwood go above and beyond to ensure the oak floors that make up the Gnarly Plank Collection are engineered to perfection.

Your home should be more than just the place you live in. It should feel like your own personal piece of paradise. You want to decorate your house in a way that makes you excited to wake up each morning and eager to go home each night. The type of flooring you choose can play a pivotal role in achieving this goal – and few lines of flooring will prove to be more successful than Gnarly Plank.

With its distressed surfaces and beveled edges, these boards exude a unique, weathered look reminiscent of historic homes. This series of hardwood flooring features three beautiful color variations, as well as three different options for widths. Let's take a look through each option.

You may not reside in the seaside city of Huntington, Southern California, but installing this floor in your home will instantly give it the kind of casual yet stylishly charming character you would expect to see in a coastal property. It is the palest option of the series, composed of mostly of gold, sand and caramel hues that look breathtaking when used in kitchens, dining rooms and living rooms.

Although it is the lightest choice, this floor also has swirls of dark shading that produce a slightly antiquated and textured appearance. The healthy balance of bright and shadowy colors can be used with a wide range of decor and furnishings. It can be paired with white and floral patterns to complete a shabby chic look or coupled with black leather pieces to perfect a more serious and stately expression.

Waimea Bay
Next up in this brilliant line of oak flooring is Waimea Bay. In Hawaiian, "waimea" means "reddish water," so it makes sense that this version of the collection boasts a hint of auburn cascading over the blend of copper and mocha tones. This stunning surface can be used in offices, bedrooms and living rooms to infuse a sense of sophistication into the atmosphere. It also works well when installed in open spaces, such as kitchens, hallways and entryways. 

One of the things that makes this floor so incredible is that it embodies the essence of what makes hardwood floors such an alluring element of interior design: It is versatile, strong and timeless. Yet, at the same time, it features just enough flair to make it a distinct product. 

Cocoa Beach
Appropriately named, there are several similarities between Cocoa Beach, Florida, and Cocoa Beach flooring. For starters, they both radiate a sense of tranquility, warmth and relaxation. They also both harness the incredible power of natural landscapes and scenery. But perhaps the greatest similarity between the two is that they both evoke feelings of joy, happiness and satisfaction from those the inhibit the area. 

"High-quality floors can help make your home feel like your own personal piece of paradise."

The darkest choice of the line, this version of the Gnarly Plank Collection is composed of deep, rich brown tones and includes a glossy finish that seals its refined and polished appearance. It can be used in kitchens, living rooms and dining rooms to create an atmosphere of elegance. It can also be installed in more secluded areas of your home that you want to add a dash of vibrancy to, such as the bedrooms, offices or sitting rooms. 

When it comes to choosing a style of hardwood flooring that you want to be both modern and traditional, you can't go wrong with oak. The various options offered throughout the Gnarly Plank Collection of Anderson Hardwood are perfect examples of the range of interior design opportunities that will be available to you with this type of flooring. 

Before selecting a product, it is important that you consider not just the tastes and preferences you have right now, but also how your style might change years down the line - and how it might affect the kind of floor you want installed in your home. The great thing about the Gnarly Plank line is that, regardless of which version you choose, you will have a floor that looks beautiful with any and all types of decor and furnishings.  To learn more about the line, click here
