As with any other floor, the sub-floor preparation is one of the most important factors. This is one of the most common failings when the amateur, the average builder or DIYer attempts to install a wooden floor. We take great care to ensure the sub-floor is perfectly flat so the finished floor looks beautiful, wears well and has a life as long and successful as George Burns.

Wooden floor patterns in parquet

A parquet floor allows you to be very creative with the pattern. The most popular are herringbone, brick, chevron, basket weave and random designs.

Random pattern wooden parquet floor

Requires mixed lengths of planks and allows for a whole host of creativity and imagination as it is less structured than the other methods of laying wooden floors. Random patterns can create beautiful and dramatic wood floors.

Brick patterns

Requiring regular plank lengths, a brick pattern, just as the name suggests is a wooden floor installed in the style of traditional brickwork one. Brick pattern wood flooring can cover a whole floor but benefits greatly from borders or feature strips.

Herringbone pattern wood parquet

Probably the most popular parquet wooden flooring pattern in Brixton Village, Raynes Park, Brixton South or anywhere else for that matter and well suited to bigger rooms but with some clever planning it can also enhance the look of smaller rooms. Herringbone patterns involve laying planks at 90 degrees to each other to create this famous design style.

Chevron pattern

Chevron pattern wood flooring is a variation of the herringbone style. Particularly associated with the grand buildings found throughout Europe, as you might imagine it really requires a large room to show it off. Laid either parallel to the wall or diagonally and often incorporated with a contrasting coloured lacing strip between the chevrons.

Basket weave pattern wooden flooring

Basket weave flooring pattern is less commonly seen wooden flooring style nowadays but making a big comeback - ironically because it is a popular design in Luxury Vinyl Tiles. A flexible pattern which can be produced using most types of wood, created in single or dual colours to create attractive effects. It works well in both small and large rooms.

Versailles panels wood flooring

Versailles panels, parquet de Versailles. A wood flooring design named after the famous Palace of Versailles (Château de Versailles) in France, where in 1684 they are introduced for the first time to replace the old marble floor within the palace. Not often seen in Brixton but arguably the most beautiful wooden floor design, certainly one of the most expensive, works well in large rooms - or palaces

The costs of installing parquet floors

All wooden parquet floors and particularly herringbone and chevron designs are more expensive to install, for the simple fact that they take more time to install. They also have higher wastage but it does create an extremely stable and attractive floor.
