What is blocked design?

Laminate flooring comes in planks for easy installation. The blocked design is on a wide plank board and will have the look of either 2 strips or 3 strips of wood material per plank. On a 2-strip blocked plank the strips will each take up half of the plank and give more of a hardwood look. On a 3-strip blocked plank the each strip will take up one third of the plank and it will give a busier look to the flooring. The idea of blocked design gives the laminate plank the appearance of staggered thinner planks in one board. This multiply plank appearance will give your smaller room a larger view on life in one board, instead of individual thinner pieces.
