Parquet flooring consists of individual blocks that are organised to make a geometric mosaic pattern. This type of flooring is available in a range of patterns including chevron and herringbone parquet flooring, all of which come in multiple different shades, styles, and finishes.
The name parquet originates from the French word parchet, a term that can be traced back all the way to the 17th century. In the early days, parquet flooring was mostly used to replace marble which demanded constant cleaning and had a tendency to rot the joists underneath the floor. Nowadays however, parquet flooring is a lot easier to mass produce, meaning they no longer come with a big price tag. This has made them a much more affordable and popular option for many homeowners.
There are a couple of different options when it comes to installing parquet flooring. It will depend on whether the fitting system is tongue and groove or click loc. If the floor is tongue and groove, you can either float the floor by only glueing the tongue and groove together and laying the pieces otherwise dry, secret nailing the flooring to a subfloor, or use an adhesive to finally bond the flooring directly to the subfloor. Whereas if the flooring has a click loc system, you won’t need any glue or nails, it simply clicks together.
Parquet floors can look beautiful in the majority of rooms in a home. However, the more decorative appearance of herringbone parquet flooring means it is especially well-suited to reception rooms.
LVT parquet flooring is a highly affordable style of flooring and the luxurious feeling it will bring to your living room, bedroom, or kitchen is sure to add value to your home. The overall cost of fitting your new floor will depend on factors like the type of pattern you choose, what underlay you use, and whether you want underfloor heating. Also, the maintenance costs of this type of floor are much lower than the likes of carpet as these need regular cleaning and attention to stay fresh.
Traditionally parquet flooring comes in either solid or engineered wood, as the names suggest solid wood is made up of one species of wood and engineered is a hybrid of both solid wood (wear layer) and several layers of plywood. Engineered parquet wood flooring works well with underfloor heating as it allows heat to be transferred without warping or shrinkage, which solid wood could suffer from. Our flooring is inspired by real, living wood and our artists have made an excellent job replicating the beauty of certain types of flooring.
The most common pattern for parquet is the traditional single herringbone style, or the closely related, double herringbone parquet flooring. However, there are multiple other patterns for you to choose from including brickbond and basketweave. You could also add handcrafted design panels for a more elaborate look.
Another option could be to combine flooring styles in a plank and herringbone mix. This comes with the benefits of adding interest and dividing an open space room into distinct areas. Creating a border will help to hide uneven walls and complement the minimalist style, whilst ladder or bookend patterns rotate the battens to a 90-degree angle to produce a wide border that looks stunning in bigger rooms.
