At Floor Coverings International Huntsville we want you to know all of your diverse flooring options! Parquet flooring may be a term you’ve never heard before, but it’s definitely an option you should know about if you are planning to purchase new floors.
What Is Parquet Flooring?
Parquet floors are made from wood, but they’re not your average hardwood flooring laid down in planks. A Parquet floor is more like a mosaic. It is smaller pieces of hardwood arranged and laid down to create a beautiful and unique pattern, which are then usually installed in tiles. With a parquet floor you get all the natural splendor of hardwood floors with some added originality. No two parquet floors are the same.
Why Choose Parquet Flooring?
Parquet wood flooring adds an air of class to your home while keeping the same benefits of normal hardwood flooring. It is likely also available in your favorite type of wood, such as Brazilian, cherry, pine or walnut. Parquet hardwood flooring also has relatively easy maintenance, with sweeping and vacuuming being the majority of the upkeep.
When having the floors installed, please ask how often you will need to polish or refinish your flooring, which will depend on the type of wood and finish. Parquet tends to have a very long lifespan if properly cared for. It’s also easy to install since parquet does not need to be nailed down to the subfloor. Instead, it has a simple glue down installation process, which means it can be used as a floating floor and laid down over a variety of existing floor structures.
