What Is Parquet Flooring?


Parquet flooring is used to create a dynamic element to interior spaces. This type of wood flooring uses various patterns that continue to be popular in households and public buildings.

The patterns of parquet are geometrical using wood blocks. One of the most common patterns is herringbone. Various woods can be used and arranged to distinguish texture and color patterns that include oak, pine, cherry, maple and walnut.

Solid parquet is the use of wood blocks glued to the floor in geometric patterns. Parquet panels are hardwood veneers that are typically glued to cheaper wood or plywood and fitted together with tongue and groove joints.
