When choosing a wooden floor there are many variables to consider, and the aesthetic appearance is certainly not marginal. Valuing only the woody species or colouring is not enough: laying geometries, wood flooring patterns, also have their share in defining the style of an environment.
The most commonly used lay geometries are brick bond pattern and random staggered wooden patterns, most commonly referred to as straight.
Both laying geometries can be made with elements parallel to the walls or diagonally. For example, the random staggered laying in diagonal is particularly suitable for camouflaging out-of-line walls.
The brick pattern is made with single elements of the same size, width and length, longitudinally arranged so that the head joint corresponds to alternate rows and takes place in the same centre or in a constant position with respect to the lists in the previous row. This type of laying allows for a floor suitable for any type of environment, a true evergreen that never goes out of fashion and gives a smooth and orderly look to the floor.
In random (staggered) patterns, however, individual elements have the same width but different lengths and are laid so that the head junctions take place in completely irregular positions. This positional geometry provides an original and asymmetric effect, to date, it is the one most used.
