A bit more information about our Nuances Plank flooring
We make our Nuances plank flooring in traditional solid oak, our premium, all oak Strata engineered board and our classic style Quintessential engineered board. All of these options are finished with the same solvent free, high performance hardwax oil so you can confidently choose the right option for your project. We make traditional and Strata engineered boards in a choice of widths which can be mixed if you wish to create a more traditional looking oak floor.
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 your 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 hrrringbone 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 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 Nuances parquet flooring
Our Nuances 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 Nuances 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.
