Parquet flooring is made up of individual blocks of wood that are laid in a geometrically designed pattern. Herringbone is a classic parquet pattern, the wooden blocks are laid so that they interlock in a diagonal design which draws the eye in the direction of the pattern.
Other popular patterns include basket weave, chevron, and brickwork. Parquet blocks come in a variety of different species of wood as well as various shades, styles and finishes. This makes it possible to create really interesting designs that can transform any room.
Parquet floors look incredibly stylish, they were traditionally used in 16th-century French castles. Due to the intricacies and the time it takes to align parquet blocks in perfect patterns, parquet floors are more expensive to install than other types of wood flooring. This means that parquet floors are usually suited to larger rooms such as living rooms and dining rooms.
The possibilities are nearly endless and nearly all of the finishes of our standard ranges may be made in a variety of standard patterns including herringbone and chevron and in wide range of sizes. Below are just some examples, for more information please get in touch...
