Parquet Flooring

Parquet flooring is where individual pieces or blocks of wood are fitted together to form a patterned floor. Usually, but not necessarily, these patterns are geometric in shape, and the most popular of them are created using four-sided blocks. The best known patterns are chevron and herringbone, although basket weave, Flanders weave or brick patterns in both stack bond or stretcher bond are also absolutely stunning, and the classic pattern know as Versailles is once again becoming popular. The complexity of installation meant that parquet flooring was traditionally a sign of wealth, but modern milling methods now make it a truly beautiful option open to all.
