Engineered wooden flooring comes in a large range of finishes and styles. It also comes in different structures and it is important to understand the implications of how the boards are manufactured to appreciate the effect they can have on the application you want to use the flooring for.
Parquet flooring, including traditional herringbone, weave patterns, square blocks, chevron and many other design are possible
Parquet flooring was used in the old days to create patterns with small blocks of wood because there was no engineered flooring available and wide planks expanded and shrank consistently. These boards also warped and twisted due to climatic changes. This is why in old buildings, such as pubs, you can see gaps between the boards and drafty floors.
