WFB asked its followers on Facebook and Instagram what their fantasy wood floor would be to install. Here's what some of them said:


Pete Helton Jr.

1,000 square feet in one room straight-laid 31/4, all walls are square and subfloor is flat as can be. I bid high as hell and they say, "Is that all?" They say, "How close can you get it to natural?"


unique_hardwood

Any floor from Legno Bastone, of course!!


cottonwoodfinishesllc

End grain mosaic.


Ed Reneau

The Oval Office.


Joshua Crossman

8-inch mesquite end grain.


floorrestoreandmore

Black walnut quarter/riftsawn 7-inch wide planks.

 


Josh Hansman

Maybe not this exactly, but something like this. An optical illusion floor that is more than just a repetitive parquet pattern!!! Who's with me???

 


Lorie Davidson

Live-edge borders wrapping the room with butterfly joints on the miters. A European oak herringbone field with mosaic leaf inlays.


Art Parquet Andy

I suppose, working for who I work for, I would go with this palace parquet.

 


toddshardwoodflooring

Solid, random width, rough-face character maple, no t&g, glued down, hand-scraped, reactive-stained, oiled.


Donald Christie

I was in Germany and had to sneak a photo (we weren't supposed to take them in this palace). I couldn't help it. I got yelled at in German. I was blown away. Everyone was looking up and around, me straight down.

 


Josh Powell

A fish scale or houndstooth pattern would be cool! With rainbow poplar, maybe.


ouradadesigns

A floor mural of Joe Rogan's favorite archery hunt in his new studio.


plankd_flooring

A rustic recycled Aussie hardwood herringbone.


Christopher Morrison

Reclaimed/ sinker Cypress end grain.


Chuck Kutchera

Being rich enough to have someone else to do it.


Nate Sitz

None. Installing is the worst.


sound_wood_floors

Wenge or Pacific maple.
