What geometric pattern does our flooring create?
Geometric flooring can be created by individual shaped blocks, such as diamonds and squares, or by the patterns formed between the panels, such as the Parquet de Versailles format.
By hand-arranging simple geometric shapes, we transform wooden blocks into hexagonal, basket weaved and chequered geometric tiles – just to name a few.
Circles, squares, rectangles, hexagons and more geometric shapes that you may not usually associate with flooring are paired together in a range of tones and textures, meaning you’re certain to find a parquet floor to match your vision, no matter the specifications.
The precise and clear lines paired with these shapes creates a look pleasing on the eye which adds an intense individuality to any project.
Select a geometric floor with a border for a classic, refined touch, or without a border for a continuous pattern throughout. Individual elements aligned; it is then time to replicate panels across an entire floor to create a stunning uniform motif.
Hotel lobbies and corridors, living spaces and other sizeable locations are ideal in getting the best from a geometric pattern floor. Large areas allow for more creative use of parquetry and benefit from the geometric pattern, as the motif can effortlessly tie the room together.
That said, you can still make use of geometric flooring in smaller spaces, just be sure to consider whether the pattern will look equal and balanced.
Geometric wood flooring can also be combined effectively with other flooring types. Make geometric panels the centerpiece of your floor, with other flooring formats, such as chevron, herringbone or plank running from it or surrounding the statement central design.
There are wood alternatives for many geometric designs, but none come close to the real thing. Black and white lino floor can be given a modern upgrade by using our Urban portfolio, for example, giving you a long-lasting floor, and added movement thanks to the floors’ undulating textures.
We also have bespoke options available across our collections, allowing you to experiment with variables. Opt for subtle tones or bold colours, smooth finishes or undulating textures – whatever you vision, we can craft it.
We recommend that you seek our specialist knowledge if you intend to make use of a geometric pattern for your living spaces or wider projects. These floors are all rather intricate, and we aim to ensure that the complex design runs seamlessly throughout your intended space. Get in touch here.
How do you install geometric wood flooring?
We would always recommend that any geometric flooring be installed by professional wood flooring fitters due to the intricate nature of the design.
Whilst the thousands of handlings and man-hours at our Cheshire workshop will have already been implemented to your floor by the time it arrives, there are still important details that must be considered in order to lay the perfect wood flooring.
A professional can assure that everything is appropriately in place before the geometric tiles are fitted, including flat sub-floors and the correct installation technique. This process is much more technical than geometric vinyl flooring and careful consideration is absolutely necessary.

How do you care for geometric pattern flooring?
The floor maintenance and care used for a geometric floor is the same as any other real wood floor – it depends on the finish used.
If you have a finish that sits on the surface of the wood, such as hardened oil, UV oil, matt lacquer, satin lacquer, or naked skin lacquer, then you’ll need to use Care System 1.
If you have a finish that soaks into the pores of the wood, such as burnished hardwax oil or restoration oil, then you’ll need Care System 2.
Both of our Care Systems include Ted Todd approved cleaners that can be used without the worry of stripping the finish off the floor, and the key is never to use too much water.
