One of the first decisions one needs to take when decorating a new property is that about flooring. Not only is it one of the first decisions one must take, but it is also one of the most important ones since flooring sets the tone for the room or house if you opt to go for the same type of flooring throughout the property. Here are 6 of the most important benefits which could lead you to opt for parquet.
Let’s face it, we all want our property to look good, flooring included! With parquet, you can immediately set the mood of the rooms or property by giving them a sophisticated touch and feel. Parquet looks great and helps enhance other aspects of the room. For example, this room pictured in the photo below would look completely different without the parquet – agreed?
Stable and Durable
Parquet is more stable and durable than solid wooden flooring since it is made of 3 layers of wood ay 90-degree angles to each other. This guarantees less movement in the wood which translates in priceless peace of mind.
Easy to Clean
We all love having items in our house or flat which look great, but we also need to get real! When it comes to the daily use of flooring, (and let’s face it, flooring does get its fair share of abuse), the ease with which we can keep it clean is immensely important. A mop and a broom will do the job in the upkeep of your parquet flooring. If you experience a spill, just wipe it up. Parquet flooring doesn’t stain easily and it doesn’t absorb smells either.
With so many options to choose from ranging from the type of wood to the way it is laid, choosing parquet flooring allows you to get creative in the design of your home’s flooring. You can choose different types for different rooms and different laying for different woods. Well, the combinations are endless.
Parquet flooring does not trap allergens like other flooring does. This might not mean much to you if you are lucky enough not to suffer from any allergies. However, allergies are on the increase and this feature of parquet flooring might be a game changer for others.
I can almost hear you say ‘whaaaaat?’. Yes, we are serious. Once you opt for parquet flooring, there are many other decisions you need to take which will drive your budget up or down. For example:
– which type of wood will you opt for?
– which type of finishing will you choose?
– what pattern would you like it to be laid in?
– will you be laying it yourself?
So, in brief, the answer is yes. Parquet flooring doesn’t necessarily mean you will be blowing your flooring budget to the roof.
