A majority of our Solid wood floors are designed in a single plank form, which are cut from individual pieces of timber. These are then sanded and shaped into either a tongue and groove or click system solid wood boards. This offers stunning natural appearances, showing off both the grains and knots of the wood.
Multi strip effect flooring is manufactured using several strips of wood, that vary in shade and pattern, which are then combined together to form a single plank. This often makes it a cheaper alternative to the traditional one-piece planks. We suggest the use of Multi-strip planks in smaller areas, since they can appear to make rooms feel bigger.
Parquet has a distinctive zigzag pattern, which is repeated across the entire floor. Each plank is taken from a single strip of solid wood, which is then specially cut so that when they are joined together, they create the iconic parquet design. It comes in a variety of shades and styles, making it the perfect choice if you are looking for something that will make a statement. This pattern is achieved using a very specific fitting style and therefore can be tricky to fit, so it is probably one that should be left to the professionals.
