Parquet block flooring can be used to create fun and stylist patterns.  The small blocks of flooring are uniform in size, meaning that they can be fitted together to create geometric patterns.

There are three main patterns that can be created: Herringbone, Basket Weave and Brick Bond.  Alongside these patterns, the blocks can be used to provide beautiful borders around the edge of your room.  Be sure to check first though, as some patterns need to have specific sized parquet blocks.


Firstly, what is parquet?

Parquet refers to the blocks of wooden flooring, also known as parquet blocks.  They are smaller than the usual plank of flooring, with the added benefit of being able to create fun, recurring, geometric patterns. The overall colour and look of your floor will depend on which species of wood, colour stain and surface finish you choose to use. The majority of parquet floors are made from Oak, but some do have a colour stain to give a darker, richer tone.


Secondly, what are the different parquet patterns?

There are various patterns that will help to give your flooring a unique and stunning first impression to guests and visitors.  The three main pattens that you can create are:



This creates a v shaped zigzag pattern, which recurs throughout your room. The blocks are laid at a 45 degree angle against each other to provide the beautiful and distinctive herringbone pattern



You will lay the blocks out in straight rows, parallel to each other, but slightly off set each time.  The end result is that your floor will resemble a stunning brickwork pattern.


Basket Weave

Here, the blocks are laid at a 90 degree angle to each other in square sections.  This will give your floor a pattern that resembles a weaved basket.
