Plank Style Herringbone/Parquet

Our Painswick Spiced Oak is the newest addition to our Engineered Wood range.

This product is part of our parquet flooring range. One of the most popular styles of parquet flooring is herringbone which includes planks arranged in a pattern that resembles the bones of a fish. Herringbone is traditionally used in grand houses but has recently become popular in modern homes due to the luxurious and classy feel it exhumes.

Our Painswick Spiced Oak is engineered oak. Engineered wood is the perfect substitute for solid wood flooring due to the real solid wood top layer. This makes the flooring durable, easier to maintain and achieve that real solid wood effect at a lower cost. Due to the top wood layer being bonded with a plywood base engineered wood can withstand fluctuating temperatures which makes them a perfect choice if you’re looking to install underflooring heating.

This product hosts a deep golden colour which is perfect when looking to achieve a classic look. It is also ABC grade which means the wood contains natural knots and grains that has been preserved and not over stressed giving it a traditional look. The wood is brushed and oiled which involves removing any new growth and then using oil to highlight the woods natural charm.

This product has a tongue and groove joining method which makes it easy for the planks to be put together. This product needs to be installed with a nailed or glued down method.

If you’re looking to install solid or engineered wood flooring by hand, here are a few things to bear in mind:

Tongue and Groove vs Click

Before you purchase your solid wood flooring, check which installation system it uses. There are two main types: ‘Tongue and Groove’ and ‘Click’.

• Tongue and Groove is more traditional, ensuring dimensional stability and strength. Along one edge, a ‘tongue’ protrudes from the centre of the board, whilst on the other, an indented groove is cut into the wood. This allows each board to fit together securely.

• Click installation is quick and hassle free. Like tongue and groove, click boards fit together, however, the click method allows the boards to lock into place, snapping together with a single movement.


Many fitters prefer floating their boards due to quick and easy installation. Floating does not require you to fix your flooring to a subfloor. Both click and tongue and groove planks can be fitted this way.

Adhesive is applied to the groove for added stability, and underlay is fitted underneath the board. This cuts down on labour, whilst ensuring that your boards are comfortable and strong underfoot.


Fixing your flooring to the subfloor will encourage a long lifespan and minimal movement. Both Tongue and Groove and Click boards can be fitted this way, however, it is more popular with the former.

Depending on the material of your subfloor, boards can be fixed in a variety of ways. For solid surfaces such as concrete, adhesive is applied directly under the board. For wooden subfloors, the boards can be ‘secret nailed’ along the tongue. Both methods are equally beneficial, giving you outstanding results.
