Do You Need New Flooring In Newcastle?
Newcastle Parquet Flooring can help you to improve your home. At some point while improving your home, you will have to make choices as to what options to go with when it comes to flooring. Concrete, carpet, and tile are the most likely options you will come across first, but bearing in mind that we all want a smart, beautiful, durable, and least expensive flooring option, parquet flooring is another option you will want to give a closer look.
Parqueterie, from which the word “Parquet” was derived from, is a French word, and as you can guess, this type of flooring has its origins in France. It’s associated with the Grand Trianon and Versailles and dates back to mid-late 1600s, a time in history that came to be known as the Baroque Period.
Originally the flooring was only made from 100% solid wood, but today, the flooring can be created out of engineered wood as well. Solid wood means that the flooring is made out of solid slices of timber while with the latter, the flooring consists of layers from different types of woods topped by hardwood.
Common design options associated with solid hardwood flooring include:
- The solid parquet
- The laminate
- The lamparquet
- The mosaic
From the surface, it’s difficult to tell which option (between solid wood and engineered wood) was used because both lead to the same outcome when it comes it to looks.
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. Examples include bamboo and Brazilian cherry, both of which are known to be hydrophobic in nature.
Like we mentioned earlier, many prefer this type of flooring for the reason that it’s warm and friendly to the feet and also a better replacement to tiles.
