Why parquet flooring is just as good in 2017 as it was in 1817
Parquet flooring is timeless. Whether fitted in a mock-Tudor home or a state-of-the-art sports centre, it always makes its presence known. It goes just as well with a Billy bookcase as much as a Chippendale chair, or a 1950s G Plan unit. In public buildings, the Belle of the Ball could be the parquet floor of the village hall.
A look at how mixed media floors compare with all wooden floors
You can either have a wooden floor or a stone floor. Or a marble floor, or a laminate floor. Having a bit of both flooring types seem extravagant, but recent trends are pointing in the opposite direction. If you combine a parquet floor with a marble floor, you have what is known as a Mixed Media Floor.
How reclaimed flooring offers an environmentally friendly yet striking alternative to freshly laid hardwood flooring
If only floorboards could talk! If reclaimed flooring could talk, the wooden floorboards could tell an interesting story. They could tell of their seafaring days. They could hark back to their previous occupants – whether at home, school or work. Wooden floorboards could tell a story with greater depth than (supposedly) the average reality TV celebrity.
