First, let’s talk about the basics. Parquetry refers to the geometric arrangement (i.e., mosaic) of wood pieces to achieve a decorative effect while also providing for the benefits of durability, strength and stability expected in wooden floors. Parquet patterns are completely angular and geometrical in triangles, squares, and lozenges; natural and curved shapes are the domain of marquetry.

Parquet floors are classified in several ways including composition, wood material, and grade. These should be considered when choosing the right parquet flooring, such as making the choice between ash and oak floors for homes, offices, and retail spaces, even in gyms.

In terms of composition, parquet flooring products come in:

  • Classical composition with patterns like brick, diagonal basket, square basket, single herringbone, and double herringbone.
  • Mosaic composition with creative patterns that can be customized although the ready-to-install patterns are already beautiful in appearance. Examples include patterns that evoke stairs, stars, and basket weaves, among others.

Parquet floors from Solidfloor come in two wood varieties:

  • Oak floors are the most reliable type because of their excellent mechanical properties, innate durable construction, and beautiful appearance. Slavonian oak is the type used by Solidfloor here.
  • Ash floors come in white to pale yellow hues. With its bright appearance and durable hardness coupled with its great strength, ash floors are suitable for high-traffic areas including stores, gyms, and schools although many homeowners also prefer them in their homes.

Parquet flooring products are usually adhered with cold adhesives. Bear in mind that professional installation is a must for these wooden flooring products to ensure that their beauty, durability and stability are intact upon application.

When choosing from among the wide range of parquet floors with the Solidfloor brand, you have to closely work with Wood Floor Planet’s flooring experts. Your choice in the product should be the right one at the first instance because, once installed, these become permanent installations; removing and replacing the boards will be costly.
