Chevron Parquet Flooring
Chevron is a French inspired pattern similar to herringbone, but more aligned. These floors are parquet style, meaning individual blocks are used to make up the pattern rather than large planks with just the appearance of individual blocks.
Chevron style became popular in the 16th century, especially amongst wealthy residents, which is why it is still reminiscent of that luxurious and expensive feel in a home. It was then, as it is now, viewed as sophisticated and elegant, so would fit well with decor such as fireplaces, fine art, bookshelves and a minimalist theme.
The fact individual blocks are used makes this flooring easier to clean, and it is easier to replace damaged or scratched areas without the need to replace the entire floor.
The organisation of the blocks creates a ‘flow’ in the room, which can be used to lead to a feature such as a bed, or help organise furniture in a way that follows the same direction. As it is possible to install parquet flooring yourself, you can personalise this based on how you want your room layout to look.
Chevron floors can make rooms appear larger, due to the optical illusion caused by the pattern; if you have a long or narrow room that bothers you, this floor could provide the solution to your problems. It is also possible to purchase the chevron style in different types of wood, shade or finish, meaning we can guarantee we have something suitable for your home!
