Random Width Planks

Many Orlando homeowners choose to have their hardwood installed in a series of random width planks. As opposed to wood flooring with planks that are all the same size, this type of design can create more visual interest in your space. This style of wood flooring also tends to look more organic and less formally planned than wood flooring installed by another method. Random width planks can be used subtly by choosing a wood flooring that is one cohesive color, or you can select planks in multiple colors to emphasize the effect of the variously sized boards.

Fitting together boards of various shapes and sizes into a diverse series of patterns, parquet is another great way to add some more personality to your wood flooring. One of the most popular parquet patterns used today is the herringbone pattern. This style takes rectangular boards and fits them together into an arrow shape that creates a zigzag effect. Similar to herringbone, chevron is also a well-known and well-utilized wood-flooring pattern that will create movement in your space and make it feel more dynamic. As with random width planks, you can choose woods in different colors and finishes to highlight the patterning of your floor.
