Parquet flooring is one of the best ways to add instant character and a certain ‘old world’ feel to domestic and commercial spaces. It is decorative, intricate flooring, comprising of hardwood ‘mosaic’ pieces in geometric and angular patterns. This style of flooring dates back to the 1600s and is still a very popular choice today. There is a wealth of choice with parquet flooring, with many different types of wood and patterns available. The classic British look is herringbone but there are many other possibilities, including the chevron, chequerboard and basket-weave styles.
Take a look below at some of the most popular designs:
Distinctly British, the timeless elegance of professionally-installed herringbone parquet, combined with a classic wood such as antique oak will give any room instant character and appeal. Also available in a wide range of hardwoods.
Simple in design and easy on the eye, basket-weave parquet can provide the perfect base for your room without overshadowing other features. Ideal for rooms that are an irregular shape, such as hallways or landings, the general design works well in old and new homes of varying sizes.
Originally from France, chevron parquet shines with historical charm and luxury. Available in a variety of timbers, chevron has been one of the most popular parquet options of recent years. Once notoriously hard to install, we now have cutting-edge methods for easier and faster construction.
