It's tough to think of the "best" way, but I'd look at it geometrically and go from there.

1. It looks like your pattern on the left is made up of rectangles that are 4:1. So I'd make sure your planks on the right are made up of 4x1 squares.
I'd make about 8 and unwrap each one to a different plank of wood in your texture sheet.

2. Snap and weld these planks into a block.

3. Snap out bigger block, attach, repeat.

Just another interpretation:

My understanding is you want it to be 'trimmed'? So, your parquet / wooden geometry matches your floor plan?

Boolean is one way. Attach all your floor pieces into one object then use the 'walls' in a Cut operation. You might have some tidying up to do - but your wooden floor will be trimmed to match the floor.

You can also just 'Cut' across the wood using Vertex Snap and focusing on the verts of your walls.

Finally, you can just fake it. If the walls occlude the rest of the flooring, it doesn't matter that the geometry goes off screen (or out of frame)

Try this and convert your edges to splines.

thanks you very much guys!! i know all this technics .. i meant about if i have unique floor and i want to go over the tiles with spline but instead of moving each one twice to make all lines and split it.. like in rhinoceroes if someone know there is a split comand when you working with splines..
its hard for me to explainn :(((((((( i hope someone will understand what i mean..

like this but to stay with the spliting line

If it's so hard for you to explain, record a screen cap video an show us.

Maybe Spline Boolean will do it for you.

Try this , I think 'Trim' is the closest you'll get.

...or just use 'refine' or divide on the spline segment.

edit: hmm just re-read your op, you want to be able to slice a spline without trimming it.

Ahh right cool...I misunderstood your crappy English ;)

You can do it with trim, it just means duplicating the shape spline and performing the trim on each one.
