Parquetry is without a doubt a statement that never goes out of style. Ever since its inception in the 17thcentury it is an interior element that has been sought after as a symbol of elegance and taste. Within commercial settings it fosters an immediate impression of desirability and success. Within homes it offers fantastic visual interest and instantly elevates blank-canvas interiors into sophisticates spaces. Engineered Herringbone parquet flooring provides the most classic aesthetic that so many adore, while chevron designs – particularly the contemporary wider or custom angled chevron designs – offer a fresh take on this traditional flooring style that packs the same stylistic punch, while providing modern appeal.
Ready For Any Environment
Realising a designer’s parquetry vision within an engineered wood floor is where the magic really happens. This is because the high calibre engineered wood flooring of today is literally ready for anything! Because of its intelligent layered construction, engineered wood flooring is able to tolerate variations in both heat and moisture that a traditional hardwood floor simply cannot. What’s more, a fine example of engineered Herringbone parquet flooring will be ready to take on high footfall, making it ideal for the highly trafficked interiors of commercial spaces or office buildings – and even the most chaotic of family households!
Speaking of environment, designers and their clients love the green element of engineered flooring too. Because the Chevron parquet engineered wood flooring you are coveting is constructed of layers, the hardwood used is far more sustainable to source than that found in solid wood flooring alternatives. We always make sustainability and environmental impact top priorities when sourcing our beautifully wood here at Unique Bespoke Wood, but there is no doubt that engineered wood flooring broadly has the upper hand when it comes to taking care of our planet. Of course, in both the case of engineered and solid wood flooring, reclaimed wood is also an eco-friendly option that can be explored!
No Need To Compromise On Vision
For designers working within a pre-existing space, the opportunity to reinvent that space is invigorating. Working with the limitation of a standing structure, however can be somewhat limiting, but in these cases engineered parquet flooring comes into its own once again. The property owners are dreaming of expansive and lustrous wooden floors, but they are working with low ceilings? Engineered flooring can be floated, negating the need to make space for a suspended floor. Dreaming of a slick interior that doesn’t have space for the intrusion of radiators? That’s no problem, because engineered wood flooring is ideal for installation over underfloor heating. Contemporary engineered flooring innovation means that just about every interior can now be enhanced with the flair of parquetry!
Bespoke Design Parquet Flooring
We touched upon wide-plank chevron parquet and the application of custom angles within parquetry a little earlier. For designers scoping out their options in terms of parquet style, engineered wood flooring means that the only limit is their imagination. Bespoke design parquet flooring allows for all sorts of variations, depending on what emerges within a designers mind’s eye. Parquetry that incorporates extra long or wide boards can create a strikingly different look that has everyone taking a second glance. Playing with angles can create a truly unique aesthetic, as can choosing woods with fantastic colour variation such as walnut. Other varieties of parquet are also a possibility, such as the ever-iconic Versailles parquet.
