Top 5 Styles of Hardwood Floors

Pacific Floor Covering LLC offers an assortment of hardwood flooring products that are designed for residential and commercial properties. There are numerous floor styles available to help decorate any room in a home or business. You might not realize how many ways there are to use flooring materials to have a beautiful space in a building because most rooms have carpets that hide the planks and tiles of floors.

Hardwood FlooringOne: Strip Style Flooring

Strip style floors are made of long pieces of wood that are less than 3-inches wide. The strips of wood are placed in a parallel design from one wall to another in a standard pattern. Today, these strips of wood are typically manufactured with tongue-and-grove devices to make it easier to lay the materials as fast as possible.

Two: Plank Style Flooring

Planks floors are similar to strip flooring, but the pieces of wood are wider than 3-inches with sections available up to 20-inches wide. It is possible to buy planks that are already stained or painted to have a beautiful floor installed in only a few hours. There are also unfinished wood planks that you can paint or stain in plain or decorative designs.

Three: Parquet Style Flooring

Parquet flooring is highly specialized with angular or geometric designs such as:

  • Herringbone
  • Lozenges
  • Triangles
  • Squares

You are able to see the unique shapes because the veneers are created using different woods that have a variety of colors. Some of the hardwood flooring materials used to make parquet floors include:

  • Mahogany
  • Cherry
  • Oak
  • Maple
  • Walnut

In some cases, locally grown timber is used to create a parquet floor design, and today, some manufacturers are also using bamboo. Parquet floors are popular in areas such as hallways or bedrooms rather than high traffic or noisy areas such as living or dining rooms.

Four: Modern Floor Styles

If you want to have modern wood floors, then it is possible to order eco-friendly products that were made using less fossil fuel. You might want to use wood flooring that has a distressed appearance or that is stained to look gray rather than brown.

Five: Contemporary Floor Styles

Instead of installing brown or gray strips or planks, you may want a contemporary floor style that is designed with white materials that will match any room’s wall and furniture colors. Pacific Floor Covering in Honolulu has an assortment of hardwood flooring available.
