You might love the look of timber flooring but are looking for something a little different than traditional floorboards. If this is the case, parquetry offers a unique solution. Parquet flooring uses tiles of wood which are arranged in a mosaic pattern and this style dates all the way back to 17th century France. If you’re thinking of buying parquet flooring, we’re taking a closer look at just some of the benefits of this timber flooring option.
Range of patterns
With parquetry flooring, you’re not limited by only one or two designs and a quality service will be able to create a customised pattern to suit your vision. Traditional patterns including chevron, herringbone and basket weave and these continue to be popular choices. However, don’t be shy about mixing things up! You can also opt for contrasting wood as a unique look.
Adds interest to large spaces
Open plan houses continue to be a popular layout but sometimes people find themselves in a situation where they want to add interest to an open area. Parquetry is the perfect solution as it allows you to use timber, which is timeless flooring choice, in a way which can break up the space and make it more interesting. You can also use parquetry to break up a larger space, such as using parquetry in the entryway and then traditional floorboards beyond.
Easy to maintain
With the intricate designs that often come with parquetry, it’s easy to assume they’ll be lots of work to maintain. However, the maintenance is surprisingly simple and it’s no more work than traditional floorboards. Simply sweep up dust and debris on a regular basis and run the vacuum over as needed. Around once a month, mop with a special timber floor cleaning solution. Other than that, all you need to do is keep on top of spills to avoid moisture damage.
Parquetry isn’t something that you need to worry about going out of fashion. Like traditional floorboards, it truly stands the test of time and will continue to add to the aesthetic appeal of your home for years to come. It also looks great in any style home – even if you completely change up your furniture and decorating, your flooring will blend in seamlessly.
