Hardwood Flooring Designs

Hardwood flooring is often used to created different designs and patterns some of which can be quite intricate. Some of these hardwood floor designs are performed by master craftsman and take a great deal of knowledge and expertise to perfect.

Parquet Flooring is a selection of rectangular wooden pieces placed in a geometric formation so as to create an artistic pattern. Customarily parquet floors are glued down. Parquet flooring refers to angular shapes as opposed to marquetry flooring which uses curved shapes to create pictures and designs. In the present day, the practice in parquet flooring is to lay and glue hardwood veneer to a cheaper substrate. This type of flooring is very fragile but has the advantage of being able to be repaired or refinished when damaged. Veneer parquet flooring is available in tiles.

Inlaid flooring is flooring which contains a decorative pattern set in its surface. When applied to hardwood, the floor contains an inlay of contrasting ornamental and patterns of other woods embedded in it which shows up in the backdrop of the primary flooring. Inlaid flooring was popular in old buildings but is not often seen in modern constructions particularly as it is expensive.

Stenciled/Stained ‘Inlay’ is the process of laying a stencil on a floor and staining it with either a darker or lighter stain. When the stencil is removed it leaves a beautiful pattern on the floor which contrasts with the base wood. Stenciling/Staining can also be done by a DIY enthusiast.

Mixed media is the use of different media in a border, medallion, inlay or custom wood flooring application. Mixed media uses different compositions which could include marble, paint (faux finishes), brass, granite, stone and varied species of domestic and exotic wood species.

This has to be one of the most beautiful floors I have ever seen. Wish I could see it in person. Absolutely incredible craftsmanship!

That 2009 winner is one hell of a floor; is that the tile or the overlay of the entire floor? However, not something I'd want in my house.

Ever since fitted carpets came out into the market, people rarely paid attention to the wooden flooring which holds them. Most floors are designed in place for sanding. Although it is such a hard and tedious job to sand floors, some people love doing them.

While some opt to make us of linoleum or concrete, other still prefer to have wood flooring which is pleasing to the eyes and gives the entire household a more earthy feel.
The floor is one of the busiest part of a building structure. Cleaning and maintaining our floors need to be done regularly so that we will not have to repair it often.

Don't forget herring bone. This is probably the most common style of wood flooring pattern in Europe. It's becoming popular in the U.S. as well.
