Parquet flooring is totally in right now, but plain country-style or château planks are not necessarily to everyone’s taste. Those who prefer a more detailed floor design may find the right fit for their home in mosaic or 3-strip parquet flooring, for example.
Real wood flooring, like parquet flooring, is enjoying a real comeback – more and more people want a floor for their homes that is as natural as possible. In that case, the decision for parquet flooring is an obvious one. The parquet manufacturer’s portfolio not only boasts an extensive range due to the material’s natural characteristics, it also impresses with various patterns.
The strip design of parquet flooring originates from the classic ship’s deck – which is why it is also known as ship’s deck parquet flooring. Each plank consists of three rows of several smaller elements which, like bricks in a wall, are arranged alongside each other in a staggered formation. Once laid, this flooring creates a lively and diverse overall appearance.
The MEISTER range offers a wide selection of colours, and each 3-strip parquet has a particular effect. When it comes to ship’s deck flooring, the classic colours are light maple or beech in harmonious or lively grading. But there are of course more modern takes on 3-strip parquet, such as oak or a planked look – which give an even more authentic impression of a ship’s deck.
Those looking to go a visual step further in their choice of flooring may opt for designs with a more complex visual appearance. History is no stranger to a diverse range of parquet patterns, many of which have since been forgotten, but which are starting to enjoy a resurgence in popularity as part of a traditional interior design style.
A break with traditional planks isn’t always necessary to bring a touch of extravagance to your parquet flooring (in comparison to the classics, that is). Here, the grading can actually make a big difference. Those envisaging a versatile look should opt for a lively or rustic grading for their parquet flooring. The natural colours and structures at play in the wood itself come to the fore with a lively, rustic or vital grading. Natural cracked knots and cracks are a go with these gradings, and make for a versatile and very natural look on each plank. Those hoping for a particularly rustic appearance should definitely take a closer look at Lindura wood flooring. Not only does this innovative wood flooring with wood powder technology become particularly robust as a result of the technology, the wood powder fills cracked knots and cracks in the plank pressing process, giving the planks an authentic wooden character.
Fans of unusual floor design aren’t restricted to decor flooring like laminate or design flooring when it comes to realising their design dreams. Natural flooring like parquet also offers scope for individualism:
