Limitations of Parquet

It is not normally used in small rooms as the pattern can sometimes look a bit disorganised but it is not impossible with the right pattern and product.

Parquet Flooring Patterns
As it is made up of small blocks you can have a number of different designs for your parquet wood flooring. Some can be simple (like plain blocks or laid in regular/irregular lengths laid as strip flooring) some more complicated (like herringbone, square basket or diagonal) and sometimes people have a bespoke piece of art made with various shades in the middle of your floor.
Whatever the design it will require a skilled and experienced installer to make sure your flooring is fit correctly and looks as it should. It is not an easy process and definitely not suggested without experience installing parquet flooring.
Some people choose to have a border around their parquet wood flooring that can make the floor more distinctive while others choose to have a clean effect with no border. If you choose to have a border you can choose specialist parquet border pieces that can be longer and thinner than the other blocks. You can also have the border a different shade or species to make the flooring stand out even more.
