This type of wood flooring is made from tiny strips or blocks organized in a way that they create a consistent and geometric pattern. Triangles, rectangles, squares, and lozenges are the popular decorative shapes featured in its designs.
However, if you would love a more advanced look, there are plenty of other patterns you can opt for, including chevron patterns or the classic herringbone.
These days we can now use various species of wood, from walnut, oak, and pine to maple, lime, beech, and many others. Oak remains a popular option among many homeowners due to easy installation and its ability not to split right away.
Pine wood is another well-known option and it stands out because of its stripe and swirl designs, together with the numerous shades it tags along: brown, tan, and, dark yellow.
Our parquet flooring is available in a variety sizes and thickness and the majority is unfinished allowing us to give our clients a truly bespoke finish once installed. Like all wooden floors, there are solid wood and engineered wood, a popular choice of parquet is our oak due to its hard properties and of course, it looks fantastic in pretty much any space. Whatever it is your looking for then let our skilled team help choose the right wood to accommodate your lifestyle.
Choosing Your New Parquet Floor
Once we have received your enquiry, we can then arrange an appointment for us to carry out a survey of the area in discussion. We will bring along a selection of options for you to get a feel for the actual size of the products and discuss potential laying patterns.
Once a product has been chosen along with any detailing you would like to be added to the design, we can arrange a delivery date of the wood to allow the acclimatising process to begin. An installation date can also be agreed at this stage.
During the install by our experienced fitter we like to talk our clients through every bit of detail and making sure everything is as you’d like it to be.
Sand and finishing, this is a beautiful stage that really highlights the products used and the design. We have endless finishes at hand to achieve a finish that looks great and also durable. Whether is a rustic dark oak, gloss or a Matt oil, white or a more traditional warm tone we can achieve this for you.
Most common uses include in bedrooms, lobby, living room, offices (meeting rooms and conference halls), gyms, and hallways. However, if you are unsure where to install a wood parquet floor in your property, ask yourself why such type of flooring would be appropriate for you.
In the event you want to have this type of floor installed in your kitchen or bathroom, you will have to put a few things into consideration. First, you will require parquets that are not only moisture resistant but also durable.
Why Do You Need A Professional?
Installing is a task best done by a professional or an experienced DIY-er. Usually, there’s a couple of tasks involved before one finally glues the flooring down. For instance, the moisture level of the sub-floor base has to be determined. If it’s above 5%, that’s a cause for concern.
Also, the surface onto which the wood is to be laid has to be levelled in order to avoid having to deal with many gaps during the installation. Normally, there may be some small gaps after sanding, but they are usually filled with resign plus sawdust and then the floor is re-sanded again.
Previously, the floor would be laid using hot bitumen, but with advancement in technique and technology, cold adhesive has taken over its place. That said, it’s important to recognize that, just like every other important home investment, parquet flooring deserves to be done in the best way possible. And this is why.
If it’s laid well, your place will be beautiful, comfortable, and worth the sacrifice, but if it’s laid badly, the place in question will be unsightly, not to mention that you will have to part with extra money to have the whole process re-done.
