Hardwood patterns add elegance and sophistication
Floors with hardwood patterns – also known as parquet flooring – are trending as a choice for residential interiors. As homeowners look for ways to distinguish their spaces with stunning visual features, hardwood patterns bring an immediate sense of sophistication and elegance to any room.
Hardwood patterns were first used in the manors and castles of 16th century Europe and have been associated with stylishness and luxury ever since. Today, homeowners can choose from a variety of standard hardwood floor patterns, or they may create their own wood floor design patterns for a truly one-of-a-kind appearance.
At Carlisle Wide Plank Floors, we offer a variety of exquisitely handcrafted products with different wood floor patterns and work closely with our customers to create exceptional parquet flooring that will be a stunning feature of any room.
What are hardwood patterns?
Hardwood patterns, or parquet patterns, are an approach to designing a hardwood floor where the floorboards are arranged and installed in an intricate pattern, rather than simply being laid out in parallel strips.
Why choose floors with hardwood patterns?
A hardwood pattern lends an instant air of elegance and sophistication to a room and enables a homeowner to create a stunning visual focal point and design statement in any space.
Can floors with hardwood patterns be prefinished?
Prefinishing is an excellent approach to installing a floor with hardwood patterns, as the floorboards can be treated with stronger sealants in the manufacturer’s facility before being delivered to the home for installation. A prefinished parquet floor helps to speed installation and enables the homeowner to avoid the mess of sanding and staining and the inconvenience of sealing a floor on site.
Can engineered flooring be installed in patterns?
Engineered floors can easily be installed with a parquet pattern. Carlisle offers two collections of engineered floors with a Herringbone pattern that are ideal for installation in urban spaces, over radiant heat, on concrete slab or in high moisture areas below or above grade.
