Parquet Wood Flooring

Parquet wood flooring can encompass many different patterns, each made from wooden blocks. Popular ones include herringbone, chevron and basket weave.

As well as this, parquet blocks are also used for panel designs. Popular panel designs using parquetry include parquet de Versailles, parquet de Chevney and parquet de Ardeche.

What Parquet Patterns can I create?

We have many different parquet flooring designs at Ted Todd, including panels that come ready to install. Our most popular parquet flooring patterns include:

Herringbone Parquet Flooring

Made up of individual blocks, the end of each block meets the side of another in a ‘zig-zag’ pattern. These blocks can also be placed in a double herringbone pattern, a basket weave pattern, or can be used with squares to create continuous Versailles.

Chevron Parquet Flooring

The end of each chevron block is engineered to a point, and so really makes a statement. This works particularly well in transitional spaces such as hallways, corridors and break out areas.

Parquet Flooring Panels

We also have many parquet panels available, with options both with and without borders. Examples of our panels are:

  • Parquet de Versailles
  • Parquet de Chevney
  • Parquet de Ardeche
  • Parquet de Chantilly
  • Chequerboard
  • Fingerblock

Our Create collection is made up of herringbone blocks, chevron and squares that have been engineered to fit together. This gives you all the components you need to create hundreds of different patterns.

Which type of wood should I use for my Parquet Style Flooring?

The various parquet patterns are suited to all species and colours of wood. We have solid wood and engineered options, and a huge range of tones and textures available.

Consider whether you want your wood floor to have a heavy, undulating grain – which is perfect for a rustic, industrial look. Or whether a smooth, uniform texture that achieves a more subtle look is more suited to your space.

How do you install Parquet Wood Flooring?

Installing a parquet wooden floor is no mean feat and should only be undertaken by an experienced wood floor fitter.  This type of floor should always be fully bonded to the subfloor, which means no underlay is required.

All of our engineered parquet floors can be installed over underfloor heating. To find out more about how to install your Parquet wood flooring here.

How do you care for Parquet Flooring?

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 on our care and maintenance guides.

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.

For further information on how to care for your wood floor please refer to our Floor Care section.
