Solid wood Parquet flooring
Solid wood floorings are subcategorised: strip flooring, plank flooring, and parquet flooring. Parquet flooring has geometrical patterns that are created with wood slats. Hand-scraped hardwood floors are handcrafted with character markings on hand-scraped hardwood floors providing a unique feature.
These floors offer the best finishes for either a contemporary look or the ‘old reclaimed’ wood floor look. They are installed through a fully bonding method or portable nailing method, or floating, which means boards are glued together but not to the sub floor.
