Parquet flooring, particularly herringbone, has been a highly influential interior design trend over the last couple of years, and looks set to continue as a
must-have flooring choice.
The term ‘parquet’ refers to a geometric mosaic of wood pieces, used for a decorative effect, primarily on floors. Patterns are angular and include squares, triangles and lozenges, with herringbone being the most popular.
Stylish parquet flooring
Whether solid wood, engineered oak, wood look tiles or brick tiles, parquet flooring is a fantastic way to create a floor of interest and character, and works perfectly in both modern and traditional properties. As the most sought-after parquet flooring pattern, herringbone offers a timeless charm and beauty, and the most up-to-date versions present a highly stylish and contemporary flooring choice for any room in the house.
Modern alternatives to traditional herringbone hardwood flooring
Traditionally, parquet flooring and herringbone flooring was created by using small wooden blocks and, while this created a lovely, classic look, it could also make a floor appear a little too ‘busy’. The modern twist on herringbone flooring uses much larger boards, for a wonderfully clean, chic and sophisticated appearance.
As an increasingly widespread alternative to solid wood, engineered wood flooring is the perfect choice for an extremely durable, stable and low-maintenance floor. We have a fabulous selection of engineered oak herringbone flooring, offering an unrivalled and universally practical solution, with the style and timeless characteristics of the real thing. With a top layer of genuine oak, coupled with a 16mm birch ply back, our engineered oak flooring presents a highly resilient and stylish flooring solution and can even be used in wet rooms and with underfloor heating systems.
