Parquet Flooring - A Touch Of Elegance

20 Nov. 2012

One of the most frequently recommended types of flooring for homes right now is parquet flooring. It is considered as both affordable and durable for many home designs. It is also the type of flooring which is proven to last for years, even decades.
If you are currently looking at floor designs for your new home or planning to redecorate your floor, parquet flooring is a great option to consider.

What is Parquet Flooring?
Parquet flooring often comes in panels or tiles. It is a combination of different types of wood on the floor to shape a geometric or angular design. This type of flooring traces its roots all the way back to the year 1684 in France.

When it was first introduced, it was regarded as being very elegant and was used in homes of the noble class throughout Europe.  It eventually made its way to regular homes and is now one of the top choices of interior designers today because of the sleek and stylish angular designs the colourful shaped woods. It has also spread to India and the Middle East where it is even used in furniture designs.

Parquet Flooring Timber and Design:
Different kinds of lumber can be used for parquet flooring. Red Oak, Brazilian Cherry, Mahogany, Pine, Rosewood and Ebony are just some of the most common ones used. Contrasting or similar wood may be used depending on the design chosen. The deeper coloured lumbers, especially when polished, exhibit sophistication while the lighter coloured ones display a more relaxed atmosphere.

The common designs of parquet flooring panels or tiles are squares or the standard type, herringbone, fontainebleau, floral, baroque patterns, abstracts, and sunbursts. It is seldom that you will see a curved or irregularly shaped design because this is hard to form with lumber.

Rooms Where Parquet Flooring fits The Best:
Parquet flooring in particular is best suited in living rooms, bedrooms and hallways. Not only does it give a welcoming look to the rooms but this flooring is also sturdy enough to withstand the amount of foot-wear that these rooms usually get.

It is also a good point to note that parquet flooring is easy to install and maintain and all experts in timber flooring installation can advise you on how to set it up and how to best clean it.

Overall, parquet flooring is a practical choice for the home-owner of today. It is reasonably priced and will help create the look and feel that any home owner would be proud to have in their home.
