During the laying of parquet, many owners have the question of how best to lay the building material. One of the common options is a herringbone pattern. There are two widely used methods for laying parquet flooring - the French and Hungarian herringbone. Many of us are familiar with the Hungarian herringbone style: it can be seen in old apartment buildings. This type of laying of parquet flooring boards was widespread in Soviet times. It was often used in the interiors of concert halls, museums, theaters, etc.
Today, this type of installation is widely used during renovation and design work. This is due to the fact that the Hungarian Christmas tree looks much brighter and more dynamic. Perfect for large rooms, because in this case the texture of the drawing itself stands out well.
Using the Hungarian herringbone style has several advantages:
freedom of creativity for a designer;
a large selection of textures, colors and wood species of parquet boards;
the opportunity to emphasize the individuality and originality of the interior due to a wide variety of finishes.
In addition, the advantage of the Hungarian nesting is maximum precision. As a result, the owner of the house will receive a well-made and level floor that will last for more than a dozen years.
