2018 Flooring Trends Part 2

Parquet flooring: The different patterns

In the previous article we discussed flooring trends of 2018, and our chosen style was Parquet flooring. We covered how the patterns can be achieved in a selection of different flooring materials such as wood and vinyl, but here, we have provided a guide to some specific patterns that fall within the Parquet genre.

Sporadic Pattern:

In a sporadic patterned parquet flooring, the length and width of the individual blocks varies. One could be 3.5 inches, the next could be 6 and the third 4. The element that makes it into a pattern is that each block is parallel to each other, and parallel to the longest wall of the room.

Herringbone Pattern:

Placed either diagonally or parallel in relation to the wall, Herringbone is one of the most popular parquet patterns used in modern homes. Wood and laminate flooring is sturdier when installed in a herringbone pattern, as each block is pressed against one another to limit their movement.

Chevron Pattern:

Appearing very similar to Herringbone, the difference in the presentation of Chevron patterned flooring is that the rectangular pieces are paired with each other on an angle to demonstrate an almost arrow-like shape and a straight line could be drawn down the middle. A herringbone pattern will connect the short side of the rectangle with the long side of another rectangular piece at an angle.

Brick Pattern:

One of the simpler looks, brick parquet designs imitate the look of traditional brickwork with blocks of all the same length and width. This solution can be installed to the entire flooring area, or just a section of the room depending on your requirements. The cuts can also be applied to achieve one of the above-mentioned parquet designs.

Basket-Weave Pattern:

This pattern is arranged to give the façade of a woven basket, given its namesake. Commonly made from maple and oak, the colours Basket-Weave can be found in lighter shades but if necessary, darker shades such a walnut can be added just to emphasise the pattern.
