Parquet flooring patterns

Just as not all floors are the same and not all wood is the same, not all parquet flooring is the same. The most diverse designs of parquet can be cleverly used in your four walls, set their own accents and give your rooms a particularly homely touch.

If you know how, you can combine the different variants of parquet designs and installation patterns and use them adapted to the respective function of the room. For example, your room can be visually enlarged and stretched.

The most common parquet designs include single-layer parquet (solid parquet) and multi-layer parquet (finished parquet). Variety is gained here by the different element dimensions, the structure, the laying and also the surface treatment. But also the other parquet designs bring great advantages.

Solid parquet (single layer parquet)
As the word solid already suggests, you get a product here that consists of real wood through and through. For centuries, solid parquet has been proven by its timeless elegance and easy maintenance as well as durability.

The dimensions of the strip parquet are:

- Thickness:14 mm to 22 mm
- Length: 250 mm and 600 mm
- Width: 40 mm and 80 mm

A distinction is made between parquet rods and parquet strips. The parquet strips have a groove running all around and are connected by transverse wood springs. The parquet strips, however, have a planed tongue and groove. The strip parquet is nailed or glued to wooden subfloors.

Finished parquet (multilayer parquet)
The great advantage of finished parquet is that it is actually ready for installation as it arrives at your door. In addition, the different construction variants enable optimal results on underfloor heating systems and the combination with other floor coverings due to a low height.

The structure of finished parquet is two- or three-layered. The top layer - the wear layer - consists of at least 2.5 mm thick parquet wood. The middle layer and the counter layer can be made of wood, wood-based materials or any other material, mostly coniferous wood is used. This three-layer structure enables the high dimensional stability. Three-layer elements can also be laid floating, if a suitable insulating carpet pad is available. Multi-layer parquet can be laid both floating and glued over the entire surface. Due to the special click connections, the individual elements are only clicked together. With the floating laying additionally still another impact sound insulation can be inserted for the further optimization.

Mosaic parquet
For several decadesmosaic parquet is modern in the most different versions. Always new variants bring new trends, whereby the "past" fashions never lose their very own charm. Moreover, there are no limits to your creative ideas. The various patterns are achieved by solid wood slats glued to a mesh. Among the most popular variants are cube parquet, the herringbone pattern and the English dressing.

The dimensions of individual solid wood lamellas are:

- Thickness: 8 mm
- Length: 170 mm
- Width: 25 mm
In addition to the visual advantages, mosaic parquet also convinces in practical matters. It has a low installation height and is therefore ideally suited for installation on underfloor heating systems. In addition, mosaic parquet is very hard-wearing and still cuts a very good figure even with greater resistance. If it should come after years to unsightly abrasions, mosaic parquet can be sanded despite the smaller height, without problems.

Already in Versailles the "queen of the parquet floors" adorned the magnificent castle halls. The appearance of the panel parquet is very individual and therefore so noble and high-quality. Here, the individual elements are combined into geometric patterns or square panels. The elements are composed in different sizes and different types of wood. They can be either veneered or made of solid wood. The panels can be grooved all around and connected with crosspieces for laying or they have a groove with planed tongue. In the past, panel laying elements were made as solid wood frame construction with tongue and groove. In old castles you can find very well preserved panels of square units, they may contain inlays, which are extremely difficult to manufacture. With regard to the different types of wood processed and creatively designed patterns, panel parquet offers an individual design even in our time. Today, panel parquet is produced industrially, it is also available as prefabricated parquet elements.

Lamella parquet
Similar to mosaic parquet, yet not the same. The lamella parquet is composed of small sticks, which are lined up on edge. This structure makes lamella parquet even more durable than mosaic parquet and ideal for commercial use. The special arrangement of the lamellas results in a parquet density of up to 25 mm.

The dimensions of the individual solid wood lamellas are:

- Thickness: 8 mm
- Length: 170 mm
- Width: 25 mm

Especially in commercial areas with high loads, a great advantage of the high-sided lamella parquet is that it can be sanded very often.

The solid smooth-edged parquet strips without tongue and groove are oriented in length and width to the dimensions of the strip parquet. The thickness varies between 10 and 12 mm and depends on the manufacturer.

The dimensions of the lamparquet are:

- Thickness:10 mm to 12 mm
- Length: 250 mm and 600 mm
- Width: 40 mm and 80

Because of the lower height lamparquet is particularly suitable for renovation projects.
