Parquet Flooring Guide
Parquet isn't a unique material – it's made from either solid or engineered wood - but the design makes it so special it deserves its own section. Essentially, parquet is made of small, loose blocks of either solid or engineered wood that are laid in intricate patterns. Parquet is a style of floor steeped in heritage and history, and can be found anywhere from quaint country homes to grand public buildings. It has all the advantages of solid or engineered wood but it's designed to make a statement.
The suitability of parquet flooring for different rooms depends on which material it’s made from. Generally speaking, engineered parquet floors can be laid in more rooms than solid parquet floors, but solid parquet will last longer. For a full breakdown of their differences, see here.
