Strip, plank, or parquet?


 

Wood floors come in three styles: strip, plank, and parquet. Each is available in a variety of species, colors and widths, so choosing the right style simply is a matter of preference

Strip flooring is less than 3” wide, and creates a linear effect in a room. It generally is considered “traditional” wood flooring.

 

Plank flooring is greater than 3” wide. It is linear, like strip flooring, and evokes a casual look.

 

Parquet flooring can vary in size and generates a geometric, non-linear look. It can be simple or complex in design.
