Engineered Wood Flooring by Plank Design & Effect
In this modern age of wood flooring, there are hundreds of different designs and effects to choose from, particularly for engineered wood! You can decide if you want a straight, traditional plank or something a little different, like our new parquet chevrons. With each different style, there are further plank effects to personalise it further; your boards can be distressed to look aged, handscraped for a beautiful rustic finish, or matt lacquered to create a durable, smooth wood floor.

Some styles never get old and Parquet flooring is one of those. Parquet is a classic style of wood flooring. The boards tend to be smaller than normal planks so that they can be laid in a certain pattern to create a specific look and effect in a room. Patterns include herringbone, chevron & basket weave. Parquet has undergone serious developments over the last 400 years and is now available in the highly durable, moisture resistant and heat resistant for of engineered wood. Companies like Woodpecker Goodrich Parquet Engineered Flooring & Tuscan Modelli have introduced brand new, fresh and stylish colours so a parquet floor can look fantastic in any modern home.
Chevron is a form of parquet flooring, but is considered more of a newcomer in terms of style. We have always had chevron boards in some form, but they are becoming increasingly popular. A complete twist on tradition parquet, these chevron boards emphasise defined lines and clean living. To take a look for yourself, check out Quick-Step Intenso or Woodpeckers Haze for some quality examples of chevron engineered wood flooring.
Distressed & Handscraped Engineered Wood Flooring
Distressed & handscraped flooring dates back 1000s of years. The Chinese would use nails & chisels to carve in to the wood to create a true texture and feel underfoot that mimics nature more truly. In modern times, we have adapted this to create boards that are rustic, textured and look beautiful.
Distressed and handscraped floors are similar in that both techniques produce a textured finish. Distressed floors are textured by machine and can relate to a range of different techniques to make a floor look aged or more textured. This could include anything from adding wormholes and scrape marks to including nail holes to make the wood look reclaimed. While distressed floors are created by a machine, handscraped flooring is finished by hand. It involves smoothing down the flooring using a special tool. While this technique was originally invented to make a floor more level, because it was done by hand it created slight irregular patterns or marks in the wood, which is what the modern technique seeks to deliver.
