What is parquet flooring?

Parquet flooring is constructed by using a number of wooden blocks, which are laid together to create different flooring patterns. The name ‘parquet’ derives from the French language, and dates back to the 17th Century.

A number of patterns can be created through the parquet method, which include herringbone and chevron, which are two of the most popular patterns.

Why choose parquet flooring?

Originally a statement of wealth, parquet flooring has become a lot easier to mass produce in recent years, meaning that it no longer comes with a heavy price tag, making it more affordable option for a wider audience.

Available in a range of species, including oak and walnut, there’s a colour and pattern to suit everyone. Of the two previously mentioned wood species, oak is the most popular due to its versatility.

Is parquet flooring difficult to install?

In short, no. There are a number of options when installing parquet flooring, all of which are easy to do, especially for an experienced flooring fitter, but it mainly depends on whether your parquet flooring comes with a tongue and groove or click-fit system. If it’s the former, then you can either ‘float’ the floor and simply glue the planks together, or you can use the ‘secret nail’ technique where you attach the floor to a wooden subfloor. If it’s a click system you have, then installing your parquet flooring is even easier - simply click it together! There’s no need for nails or glue in this case.
