What Is Parquet Flooring?

A parquet floor is a type of hardwood flooring, but rather than being composed of traditional planks, the wood that makes up parquet fits together like a mosaic or puzzle pieces. Smaller pieces of hardwood are laid down to create a unique work of art exclusive to your home. There are multiple options when it comes to color, patterns, and designs as well.

Advantages of Parquet Flooring

Parquet floors have all the beauty and benefits of hardwood flooring with the added element of a boost to your décor; they can instantly turn any home into a personalized masterpiece. Parquet wood flooring can likely be made using your favorite hardwood, including Brazilian, cherry, walnut, and pine.

Parquet also has relatively simple maintenance. Just sweep or vacuum, and use a damp mop and gentle cleanser when needed. Whether you need to polish or refinish will depend on the specific wood type chosen. Parquet hardwood flooring has a long lifespan when properly cared for, and it also has easy installation. It does not have to be nailed down, and is glued down instead, making it a great choice for a floating floor. Because floating floors can be installed over multiple existing flooring structures, any current flooring may not even need to be removed. Parquet flooring is versatile enough to be installed in any room of the home for added grandeur!
