Laying parquetry floors can be more labour intensive then a normal timber floating floor, but they do have a lot of benefits. They are known to be stable in changes of humidity as well as being durable and long lasting, not to mention the huge variety of colours, textures and patterns available.
And what is the difference between a herringbone and chevron pattern you may ask? Apparently it's all in the zigzag. In a herringbone pattern, the wood blocks finish perpendicular to each other, resulting in a broken zigzag.
While the blocks in a chevron pattern run point to point and the ends are cut at an angle to create a continuos zigzag pattern.
