Installation and Patterns

After you’ve selected your wood type, and the plank width (See Wood Info.) it’s time to choose the pattern. Patterns add a decorative touch to your wood flooring. Straight patterns are most common.

Straight:  Consists of wood strips laid parallel to each other along the length of the room.

Diagonal:  Without adding too much more to the cost, you can select the diagonal pattern in which the wood strips are laid at a 45-degree angle to the walls.

Parquet:  The parquet pattern looks like a checkerboard. Individual square modules are laid in crisscross fashion. This pattern is also popular.

Herringbone:  Similar to the parquet pattern, but the individual slats are laid at a diagonal angle.

Perimeter Border:  With perimeter bordering, a different pattern is given to the edges of your wood floor. This gives your floor design a frame and a more formal look. It can be used to separate adjacent rooms that don’t have any walls between them.
