Why Choose Engineered Wood Chevron Flooring?
Chevron flooring is a patterned flooring design that creates a running V-shape as the ends of the planks are cut at 45 degrees. This creates a seamless pattern that is both striking and timeless. Choosing this pattern in engineered wood also has additional benefits. Some of the reasons we love chevron wood flooring include:
- Visually distinct: Chevron flooring creates a distinguished and clear pattern which provides any room with a classic luxurious feel. The textured look helps to draw attention to its French style.
- Characterful: Beyond the distinct pattern, oak chevron flooring brings its own character due to its featured knots, streaks, colour variation and grooves.
- Traditional feel and look: Chevron parquet is traditionally a wooden floor, so choosing engineered chevron means you get a traditional feel to the flooring, as well as the look.
- Hard-wearing: Engineered wood is known for being durable and hard-wearing, making it a great choice for rooms with high footfall.
What Rooms are Best Suited to Wooden Chevron Flooring?
As engineered wood is durable, it is suitable for most rooms in the house. It can withstand heavy traffic and furniture and makes a statement in any room. This flooring material is suitable for underfloor heating but has low water resistance, so we don't recommend laying in a bathroom. You can find out more in our engineered wood room suitability guide, some popular places to lay engineered wood chevron flooring include:
- Hallways and entranceways: The chevron flooring pattern naturally creates a flowing motion which helps invite people into spaces. For example, opening up the front door to a chevron floor entranceway helps to create a guiding and welcoming route into the home.
- High traffic, large rooms: To fully emphasise the chevron pattern, choose this design for large spaces. As the chevron pattern guides the eye, it can also direct attention to key interior features such as artwork or large windows. Engineered wood is hard-wearing, so it works well in rooms with lots of traffic.
- Smaller spaces: Whilst the chevron pattern is maximised in a larger space when used in a smaller room, it helps to add character where the possibilities regarding interior design elements are more limited. For example, a chevron design floor in an office space adds a traditional and sophisticated touch.
Due to the humid conditions found in bathrooms or the likelihood of spillages in kitchens, we don't recommend using a wooden chevron floor in these spaces. Instead look to use a chevon LVT. The suitability of chevron flooring in these spaces depends on the specific floor. Under the product information of each product, you can check out its room suitability. Either way, care should be taken to prevent your wooden chevron floor from exposure to excessive moisture.
What Colour Chevron Wood Floor Should I Opt For?
Chevron wooden flooring is guaranteed to bring character and charm to a space. However, you should always carefully consider the colour you choose as this can transform your room in different ways. Our engineered chevron flooring is available as chevron oak flooring, which can be found in a variety of colours and tones:
- Grey: Grey chevron oak flooring brings an ultra-modern and sleek element to the timeless chevron design. Grey also makes the perfect backdrop to bold statement wall colours or can bring peace and stability to a room when combined with more neutral colours. It is highly versatile, and depending on how it's paired, it can look rustic, traditional or contemporary.
- Darker tones: The bold and rich colours of a dark chevron oak floor pair wonderfully with the classic pattern creating a standout floor. A dark chevron floor can be juxtaposed with light walls for a contrasting look or be doubled down with dark shades for a cosy design.
