If you’re looking for a floor that will bring pattern and texture to your home, chevron is the one for you. Originating from Crete, Chevron became increasingly popular amongst the French people with its integrated V shape. The floor style has graced galleries and museums in the heart of Paris and has maintained its classy, and desirable look in homes today.
The Chamonix Merino Oak is finished with an invisible oil coating that provides the ultimate protection against scratches while keeping the colour you love. Engineered wood is a durable material which is great for homes who lead very busy lifestyles! It’s also suitable for underfloor heating, so you can warm your feet up while having breakfast on a cold winter’s morning. Nail or glue, the choice is completely up to you!

Our Engineered Flooring can be installed in three different ways, so it depends on your joining method, the subfloor and what sort of method you prefer.
- 1. Floating Floor
- 2. Gluing
- 3. Nailing
In a floating floor, the boards are joined to each other, instead of to the subfloor. If you have a click-joining floor, floating is the way to go. If not, you could still use this method by gluing the tongue and the groove joint together. Either way, we'd advise you to have underlay installed and prepped. We wouldn't recommend this method for tongue & groove parquet as it won't be as sturdy.
With this method, adhesive is applied to the top of the subfloor with a trowel and then the individual planks are laid on top. This is our favoured method for tongue & groove parquet flooring but isn't suitable for any type of click-fit boards.
With this method, secret nails go through the tongue to secure the planks to a wooden subfloor. Because of this, nailing is only suitable for tongue & groove floors, not click-fit. Professional fitters tend to prefer this method as the result is extremely secure. You'll need to fit a wood layer above any concrete because secret nailing cannot be done directly on top of a concrete subfloor.
