A Guide to Parquet Flooring: What is Parquet Flooring?
Parquet Flooring is quite possibly the best flooring option despite the somewhat more complicated manufacturing process. Parquet flooring consists of thin pieces of wood and the overall appearance is very sophisticated and creative.
Parquet flooring’s most common species used in manufacture are: oak, walnut, maple, cherry and sometimes mahogany or other exotic hardwoods. Apart from the wood species used in making your parquet flooring, you should also decide whether you want engineered or solid parquet flooring. Solid consists of solid pieces of timber whereas engineered have layers of wood with the hardwood veneer at the top; however, whichever choice you make there is no difference in the final look of the fitted parquet flooring.
It’ll still look spectacular either way!
Why should I choose engineered parquet flooring?
If you are considering replacing your current floor with something more eye-catching and bolder; Parquet flooring will be the perfect choice.
Parquet block flooring can transform any space from a rustic cottage to a modern apartment. Parquet blocks can be laid in a variety of patterns that certainly add personality to any room. Parquet blocks are very versatile, and it is also compatible with underfloor heating. The flooring is certainly very stable because it is made of three layers of wood at a 90-degree angle to each other to reduce movement in the wood. The top layer is made of carefully selected wood and is named the ‘wear layer’ and can be sanded if required. Underneath the wear layer lays an advanced body that absorbs the impact and guarantees the high stability of the flooring.
Below the advanced body is a sheet of ecologically certified wood that gives each board the perfect balance. Since the bottom layers of wood are invisible, they can be made of cheaper types of wood. This often means that parquet is cheaper than solid wood flooring. If we’ve managed to transform your views on Parquet Wood Flooring, why not take a look at our products and order a free sample today!
