Perfectly Patterned Parquet

The use of pattern within interior design can be traced back thousands of years and continues to play an important part within home decoration worldwide. Repeat patterns and geometric designs give a space a sense of rhythm, symmetry and balance. More artistic or fluid pattern designs bring a more bespoke eclectic feel to an interior design scheme.

One traditional method of introducing pattern within living environments is the use of decorative inlaid wood flooring. Parquet, block or patterned floors have provided the foundations to the most impressive interiors throughout history and today, these ornately detailed wood floors are as popular as ever. The increased interest in parquet and ornate block flooring has lead to a revival in the art of decorative wood flooring production within the UK.

One of the UK’s leading providers of bespoke wood flooring is London based flooring specialist Ecora. Sales Director Jeandre du Toit explains why parquet flooring will never go out of vogue. “Parquet flooring and decorative wood flooring panels work well in both period properties and also with perfectly within ultra modern interiors. The timeless qualities of the materials and patterns lend themselves particularly well to spacious interiors and are therefore popular with owners of large properties such as historic or period buildings. Also, patterned or geometric designed wood flooring also looks impressive within contemporary buildings such as open-plan apartments, loft spaces, penthouses and new build projects.”

The merits of parquet flooring are plentiful, with numerous benefits to homeowners, interior designers and property developers. It’s not surprising therefore that so many property owners are opting for durable, hardwearing and above all, decorative wood flooring materials. For those looking for a floor that will look even more beautiful with age whilst also adding to the property’s value, then solid wood decorative flooring provides a very attractive long-lasting solution.
