Engineered Wood Flooring Plank Effect Advice

Luxury Owl Thinking

The construction of your engineered floor boards and the size and arrangement of the planks will alter the appearance of your room significantly. We sell single plank boards or boards made up of multiple smaller strips of wood, read about their differences here.

Single Plank- Single planks are easily our most common option for engineered wood flooring. This is the long established process of cutting one plank of wood from a tree and manufacturing it into a board, this ensures the flooring looks natural and the structure and grain of the wood can really be seen and appreciated. We think opting for single planks will give your room the impression of being larger.

Three Strip- Our three strip plank engineered flooring is formed by combining three small strips of wood together to create one board, this makes a slightly cheaper alternative to single plank floors. We recommend them in smaller rooms as they can create a mirage of space.

Parquet- Parquet engineered flooring really will make a statement and look incredibly elegant in your home. It is constructed by laying many identical planks in a geometrical and angular pattern, as is evident in the pictures. Herringbone design is our most common but there is an array of patterns for parquet floors, to ensure you can achieve the individual look you desire.

Herringbone- Herringbone patterns are the most popular of our parquet flooring; they consist of many alternating rows of short wood boards in slanted parallel lines to create an eye-catching uniform finish, as our pictures show. Herringbone engineered flooring, like all parquet varieties, is relatively difficult to install due to the multitude of small boards that must be aligned perfectly.

Chevron- Chevron parquet flooring is very similar to the herringbone pattern, the only difference being that chevron has straight vertical lines between each two rows of slanted wood boards whereas, herringbone has a zigzagged pattern. Therefore, our chevron flooring is even more uniform making it a good option for professional environments or to create a cutting edge design feature in your home.
