As part of our engineered parquet collection, the Painswick Ivy is an unforgettable brown oak floor, evoking comfort and tradition. In a herringbone style, this product will be a striking addition to any room it’s placed in and is sure to attract attention. If you’re looking for an elegant nod to the past whilst remaining fully on trend there is no better choice.
With a brushed texture, any scratches will be hidden and the oiled finish helps to protect the flooring from stains and spills.
The rustic grade of the product really shines in its multi-tonal brown shades, making it ideal for adding hints of that barn conversion look in your own home, perfect for cottagecore aesthetics mixed in with the modern herringbone pattern.
Measuring at 400mm long, 90mm wide and with a general thickness of 18mm, these long planks will seem to elongate a room, creating the illusion of size.
It uses a tongue and groove joining method and can be fitted through gluing or nailing down.
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 recommended for most click-fit boards. The exception to the rule is if you're installing your click-fit floor over underfloor heating. In this case, adhesive can help keep the floor stable with fluctuating temperatures and can reduce creaky floorboards.
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.
