Types Of New Parquet Flooring
Solid Parquet Floor tiles are exactly what they say, they are made milled from a single piece of timber. They are solid throughout.
Engineered Parquet is a popular cost-effective option when looking for a durable parquet alternative to solid hardwood. Because the finished look is identical to that of solid wood, allowing you the same creativity with beautiful, stylish and luxurious patterns in your home while bringing greater durability to moisture and temperature changes.
Most importantly parquet flooring allows you to create something unique in a room that can have different effects on the atmosphere depending on the particular pattern chosen. There is usually a 3mm wear layer of wood (Oak, Teak etc.) which is fixed to a plywood backing giving stability.
A professional sander can take 1mm off the top which will allow you to re-stain or freshen the floor.
Reclaimed Parquet Flooring
Up-cycling with reclaimed parquet flooring can bring instant gravitas to any space. The beauty of aged parquet can give you the vintage feel without the need to put in all the years it takes to get the look.
We have been working with reclaimed parquet flooring in Kildare for a long time and while the herringbone pattern is a beautiful classic style there is so much scope to be creative with parquet, there is more to these wood blocks than just herringbone floors.
There are wonderfully attractive patterns available for you to consider. The beauty of reclaimed parquet flooring is that sometimes the timber itself can suggest the best pattern to bring out the beauty in the floor
Remember that the dark colour you see on a reclaimed block will be lightened back closer to its natural colour when we sand it after installation.
It is amazing to see this transformation happen in your home. The old battered parquet flooring you picked up in a salvage yard like Wilsons will look like new when we have worked our magic.
Custom Parquet Design
By far the most common design you will see in Parquet is the classic herringbone design.
This is where the pattern develops from the centrally laid spine of the design.
It is a classic for a reason, simply beautiful. But as with all things in life variety provides the spice and there are many options when it comes to patterns and designs available to you. We will show you many different custom flooring styles. What pattern suits a particular sized room. How light or the type of timber can affect the parquet design.
