Add elegance with patterned wood floor designs
Patterned wood floor designs – also known as parquet flooring – can help to transform any room, bringing a greater sense of elegance, luxury and visual interest. Originally found in the 16th century in the manors and castles of wealthy European aristocrats, patterned wood floor designs today are being installed in some of the finest residential and commercial interiors around the world.
Carlisle Wide Plank Floors is a premier source for the highest quality patterned wood floor designs, providing clients access to a wide variety of woods, colors and types of wood floor patterns. Choose from standard patterns like Chevron, Herringbone or Versailles, or work with our design specialists to create your own unique pattern.
What are patterned wood floor designs?
Patterned wood floor designs are used to create greater visual interest in a wood floor. Rather than installing a wood floor with parallel strips side-by-side, parquet floors may use a wide variety of hardwood floor patterns where floorboards are laid out at angles, in a checkerboard fashion or in intricate puzzle-like designs.
Why use a pattern in a wood floor?
Hardwood patterns in a floor help to make the surface a more central feature of the interior design while adding greater elegance and beauty to room.
Can any wood be used with patterned wood floor designs?
Yes. Any wood that is used in a floor can be used for hardwood floor layout patterns, and some patterns add even more interest and complexity by using other materials like marble or tile as part of a pattern.
Are prefinished floors available in designs?
Prefinished floors can easily be created with wood plank patterns. When a parquet floor is prefinished at a manufacturer’s facility, stronger sealants can be applied to provide greater protection for the wood. Prefinishing a patterned floor also allows the homeowner to avoid the mess and odor of finishing a floor on site.
Can engineered floors be installed with patterned wood floor designs?
Engineered floors can be installed with patterns quite easily. Carlisle offers two collections of engineered flooring with Herringbone patterns that are ideal for installation over radiant heat or concrete slab, or in locations below grade or where high levels of moisture are present.
