Examining Some Wood Floor Styles

Living Room

There are dozens of different wood types to choose from for your new floors, but there are but three styles of wood floors available on the market today: strip, plank, and parquet. Strip flooring creates a linear effect in a room, often making the room appear larger, thanks to panels that range in size from 1” to 3” wide. Plank flooring is much wider, typically 3” to 7” wide, and often create a more casual look thanks to its wider, more open parameters. Parquet wood floors vary in size, but they usually generate a geometric, non-linear look and pattern ranging from simple to very complex.
