A parquet floor is a wooden floor made from many pieces of wood fitted together like a mosaic or puzzle, and it can be as large as a ballroom or as small as a bathroom. Frequently, parquet is made from different types of wood with varying grains, to create a unique and eye catching pattern.
Classic parquet patterns include herringbone, basket weave, chevron, and brick style flooring. Particularly ornate parquet uses an assortment of geometric shapes to create a large and beautiful pattern which might include floral themes, sunbursts, or abstract art.
The parquet is made from solid pieces of wood cut in a tongue and groove pattern so that they can be fitted together. Because the floor is solid all the way through, it can be sanded down and resurfaced as it degrades with age, and some floors will permit several refinishing’s before they need to be replaced.
