The size of the space determines the size of the boards. For smaller spaces, it is best to choose narrow, short boards. In large spaces, broad, long boards come more into their own. The orientation of the boards also has an effect. Long boards installed along the length of a room make the room look even longer.

Did you know that the patterns Herringbone ‘Baton’ and Hungarian Point ‘Chevron’ are the two oldest installation methods for wooden flooring? Herringbone is the oldest and finds its roots in Europe, were they probably wanted to repeat the zigzag pattern of earlier architectural styles. Those floors became extremely popular in France under the name ‘Bâtons Rompus’ which literally means ‘broken sticks’. The Hungarian point came into fashion later, during the 17th century. They think it came from Italy and is therefore a riddle why it is named ‘Hungarian’. Both patterns are made from the same sized pieces of wood that are installed in a synchronized zigzag pattern. Herringbone boards are rectangular and fit simply with tongue and groove. Hungarian point is cut at an angle causing the boards to form a perfect point.
