A laying pattern creates the room individually. Whether elegant or rustic, quiet or lively everything is possible!
Laying patterns are like the different parquet finishes, the place where you can set your own accents. If known how, the different variants of parquet finishes and laying patterns can be combined and adapted to the respective function of the room, used. For example, your room can be visually enlarged and stretched.
Basically, a parquet floor laid across the long side of the room makes the room look wider. The room is thus stretched by laying it along the axis of the room (e.g. window font).
English bond (straight bond)
Parquet in English bond is a classic, here everything is ordered. The offset is clearly defined and regular - the parquet strips are offset by half their length. This installation gives the room an orderly and calm appearance and is therefore recommended, for example, for offices, where order and professionalism prevail, or for bedrooms, where tranquility is to be found. Also, this installation is most suitable for smaller rooms.
Ship's floor (wild bond)
One of the most popular looks - based on a ship's deck. Here the parquet strips are laid parallel with staggered joints. Because of the staggered joints, this is also referred to as a wild bond. The room still feels calm, but is somewhat more agitated and lighter than the comparable installation in English bond. Ship's floor additionally stretches the room visually and makes it look larger. It is essential to pay attention to the grading of the wood in this installation pattern, because its effect is even stronger due to the natural look.
Herringbone pattern (angle bond)
In the popular herringbone pattern, the parquet strips are laid at 90 degrees to each other. Especially in large, light-flooded rooms, this installation pattern looks exclusive and noble, because the light plays wonderfully on the wood.
Herringbone pattern is also possible not only with one bar, but also with double or triple adjacent bars. Another special feature is also present - herringbone pattern, which is arranged on both sides at an angle of 45 or 30 degrees, is called French herringbone pattern.
Old German dressing (dressing with cross bars)
Similar to the English bond, the parquet strips are laid twice parallel to each other, staggered at regular intervals. However, at the ends of the staves, a twisted cross-bar delimits the wider pattern. This beautiful laying pattern, similar to the herringbone pattern, comes into its own only in larger rooms. You will get an original look when using two different colored wood species. Thus, this artful, elegant laying pattern becomes a real eye-catcher.
Unfortunately, parquet flooring in the classic weave pattern is being laid less and less often these days. However, if you want to set an unusual accent, this is the right choice. In the weave pattern, three to four parquet strips are laid parallel to each other. The next sticks are laid at a 90 degree angle. This creates a weave pattern that can shine especially brightly on large, straight surfaces.
Also known as checkerboard pattern, laying in cube pattern does not give any direction and gives the room a pleasant calmness. Therefore, this installation is particularly suitable for living areas and smaller rooms. It is one of the oldest types of parquet laying and has not gone out of fashion until today. In the cube pattern, the individual strips are arranged in a square shape. The laying directions alternate between horizontal and vertical in each new square, creating a checkerboard pattern.
The ancient art of the parquet layer was marquetry, a wood inlaying technique that used to be applied mainly in mansions and castles. Today rediscovered, it creates an elegance that can not be surpassed. Combinations with cube elements and rods, diamond patterns as well as various border friezes also create an individual image. There are few limits to the imagination and the design of the rooms becomes an adventure.
