A bit more information about our parquet flooring 

Our parquet flooring is made as individual wooden blocks designed to be laid in geometric shapes to create attractive patterns. As the pieces run in different directions they catch the light in different ways to create gently contrasting tones across the floor and show off the grain of the timber to stunning effect whichever way you walk across the floor. Although they are inherently elegant and luxurious, our parquet floors are also incredibly hard-wearing and very well suited to high traffic areas such as hallways, kitchens and commercial interiors.

Amongst our parquet collections you will find solid and engineered parquet flooring options, but the construction of the block won't limit where or how it can be fitted so you can simply choose the colour and style that suits you room. You will also find a choice of different sizes and designs in every option so that you can create whichever pattern you prefer.

Parquet flooring patterns

In recent years, although the term parquet covers a wide range of different designs and possibilities, parquet floors have become synonymous with the most commonly seen herringbone design. The popularity of the herringbone design is due not only to its timeless appeal but also to its versatility - it works almost anywhere, in any space and with most styles of architecture and decor. Herringbone floors make narrower spaces appear wider and more generous but equally adds interest and intimacy to larger rooms. It is ideal for rooms entered from different directions as it draws you in whichever way you cross it.

Our parquet flooring can all be used to create herringbone and brickwork designs and most are also suitable for Basketweave. We also make chevrons in our many of our parquet finishes. Chevron parquet is fast becoming a designer favourite, especially for larger luxury interiors where plenty of flooring is visible; it is inherently elegant but also inviting as it naturally draws you into and through the room.

Installing our Nordic parquet flooring

Our Nordic parquet flooring is precision machined to the highest standards to make it as easy as possible to install. It can be successfully fitted in any room with normal living conditions including over underfloor heating in line with our simple installation guidance. It will need to be glue fixed to a dry, level structural subfloor using our Broadleaf Ultra wood flooring adhesive or a suitable equivalent. 

Our Nordic Parquet floors are fully finished, ready to walk on the day they are laid. We would normally recommend that our parquet flooring installed by an experienced professional, but if you would like to try and fit your own, then give us a call and we will be happy to talk you through what would be involved and send your our guide to installing parquet floors. It is worth bearing in mind that fitting a parquet floor is a more time consuming and complex process than installing plank flooring as there are many more pieces to deal with and cuts to make, so it will cost a little more.

Please ensure that professional fitters read our general flooring installation guide for information on sub floor preparation requirements and underfloor heating.

Answers to the most common plank flooring questions.


Customers often ask about the difference between solid and engineered oak flooring, and which of these they need. In simple terms, solid oak flooring is made from single pieces of timber, whilst engineered oak flooring is made from multiple layers. 

In the case of plank flooring, the engineered construction creates additional stability and opens up additional installation options. Whether you will need this, and whether engineered oak flooring will offer any advantage  or not will depend on how and where you are looking to fit it. For example, if you need to float your floor, or if you want to fit wide planks over underfloor heating, then you will need engineered oak flooring, but if you choose a medium width board, to be glue fitted in normal conditions, then there would be no advantage. 

All of our plank floors are available as both solid or engineered oak flooring, so this is not something that you need to worry about until you have chosen the floor you like best. They are all made in our factory in Wales, using the same methods and the same care, so whichever option you choose you can be assured of the same quality. Once you have made your choice, you can either use our flooring selector to decide which construction best suits your installation method, or ask us and we will be happy to advise.

To some extent this will obviously be a question of taste, but the width of the plank flooring that you choose will have quite an impact on how the floor looks when it is laid, so it is definitely something to think about as part of your selection process. Wide plank flooring is impressive and will bring a sense of intimacy to larger rooms where they are in proportion. Narrower plank floors on the other hand, will make smaller spaces appear more generous. Wide plank flooring will also create a more contemporary looking wood floor, as traditionally these were rare. Using a single width of plank in wood flooring is a relatively modern phenomenon, so if you want to create a more traditional looking floor, you can do this by mixing more than one width of plank. All widths of Broadleaf plank flooring in the same format are compatible, so you can do this easily.


Conventionally, and to show them off to their best advantage, wood flooring planks are laid in the direction of the primary light souce and along the length of the room so that the light runs along them rather than across them. That said, it is a rule of thumb, and the shape of the room, what the wood flooring is to be fitted to, or personal preference may mean that this is not the best solution in every case. We would always recommend that you discuss and agree the direction that your wood flooring is going to be laid with the fitter when they carry out their survey to avoid any potential issues at fitting stage.
