Why design your floor layout to look the same as everyone else’s when you could choose this fun and unique pattern?
All of us are very familiar with your basic side by side format of wood pieces laid on a floor –a description that often relegates them to practical rather than decorative uses. But if you have been thinking of adding a unique twist to one of the spaces in your home, you can now add patterned wood layouts back to your list of stylish flooring options. 2020 brings with it a new look. Specifically, we are seeing an increase of Chevron or Herringbone pattern designs in homeowners kitchens, bathrooms and more. Patterned floors are officially here, and you should not miss out.
Deciding on a hardwood floor installation patterns is a very important step in a renovation project. Not only will your pattern of choice shape the look of your floor, it will also impact furniture placement, and the general flow of your space. Although they use the same material, the top hardwood floor installation patterns have very different looks.
Different Types of Hardwood floor Installation Pattern
1. Straight Pattern
The most commonly used installation pattern is straight. To achieve this pattern, hardwood flooring boards are installed parallel to each other along with the length or width of a room. This pattern is used to create simple and contemporary designs, enhancing the original look of the hardwood floor. Being the most straightforward pattern to install, it’s also the least expensive. Other patterns are more costly because they use extra wood and can take longer to install.
2. Random Pattern
Random pattern installations offer a straight-forward, parallel design, but involve a mixture of boards with different widths. This hardwood flooring pattern allows you to choose the ratio of wide and narrow boards, which lends to a more customized look. Also, this pattern will give your space a more rustic aesthetic, with added movement and an energetic feel.
3. Diagonal Pattern
This pattern will add a formal touch of luxury to your space without drifting away from a traditional straight installation of a hardwood floor. Flooring boards are installed parallel to each other but laid at a 45 degree angle to the walls.
4. Parquet Pattern
Parquet installation is the laying of wood flooring planks in a repeated geometric pattern. This pattern results in a hardwood floor with the appearance of a checkerboard, sometimes with more complex patterns within each checkerboard square. Additionally, the variety in patterns is practically limitless. The parquet pattern gives a very distinct and sophisticated look to a room. Traditional parquet installation is expensive and rare. It has now been replaced with prefabricated square modules with parquet patterns laid out in a wood veneer.
5. Herringbone pattern
In a herringbone pattern, the hardwood floor strips are laid in a diagonal zigzag plan that looks like twilled fabric. This pattern can be laid out in the traditional manner or with square modules, like the parquet design.
Hardwood floor installation patterns are often completed or furnished with moldings and other decorative touches like mosaic medallions. These furnishings can be made of wood, natural stone, or alternative materials like glass and metal tiles. These types of finishing touches will frame your room, separating it from adjacent spaces and adding formality to it. Furthermore, inlays like mosaics add custom individuality to a room.
