Wood Flooring Styles

Strip Flooring

Strip flooring is linear flooring that is usually 1-1/2", 2-1/4" or 3-1/4" wide.  It creates a linear effect in a room, often promoting the illusion of a larger space.

This floor was installed to match the existing wood flooring. We installed 5/16" x 2" strip flooring with a walnut feature strip.

Plank Flooring

Plank flooring is also linear, however it is wider in width.  Common widths of plank flooring are 3", 4", 5", and 6".  Plank flooring is often preferred for a more traditional or country decor.

Floor includes a border with a Jarrah feature strip. The floor was stained a light brown color and finished with polyurethane.

Parquet Flooring

Parquet Flooring is a series of wood flooring pieces that create a variety of design options when linear is not your preference.
