A small handy guide for everything you need to know about Parquet Flooring
- Parquet flooring got its name from French origin and it dates back to the late 1600’s when “parquet de menuiserie” tiles were used to replace marble flooring at Versailles and the Grand Trianon.
- Parquet flooring can be made from both solid and engineered wood, but in the past it had to be made from 100% solid wood. It’s also not a task for the novice DIY-er, so if you’re thinking of introducing it into your home, it’s best to call in a professional.
- Parquet flooring is different than ordinary wood flooring where wooden planks that are normally wider than 10cm and longer than 1m are used. But in parquet flooring smaller pieces of wood are arranged for a more decorative effect.
We have a selection of properties available to hire that feature parquet flooring in a whole range of rooms, including contemporary kitchens, open and welcoming living rooms, luxury bathrooms and grand period hallways. With each unique style of parquet providing a sense of style and character in each property.
