Popular parquet patterns
There are a few different parquet patterns that are popular among homeowners. The most common parquet pattern is the herringbone, which features interlocking wood pieces that create a zig-zag effect. This pattern is classic and timeless and it fits in any room of the house. Another popular parquet pattern is the chevron, which is similar to the herringbone but with a V-shaped design. This pattern is also very classic and can be used in both formal and informal settings. The basket weave parquet pattern is made up of interlocking wood pieces that create a woven effect. This pattern is more unique than the other two and can add personality to any space.

Choosing the right parquet pattern for your home
The parquet pattern you choose for your home should be based on the overall style of your space. If you have a traditional home, then a classic parquet pattern like the herringbone or chevron would be a good choice. If you want to add a bit of personality to your space, then the basket weave parquet pattern would be a good option. And if you’re looking for something a little more unique, then the random parquet pattern would be a good choice.
Once you’ve chosen the parquet pattern you want for your home, the next step is to install it. The installation process is relatively simple and can be done by most do-it-yourselfers. However, if you’re not confident in your ability to install the flooring yourself, then it’s best to hire a professional. Some of our contractor may offer this service but not all.
