35 Luxurious Parquet Flooring Ideas With Pros And Cons
Parquet flooring is a timeless flooring design that homeowners turn to for a classic or traditional look. Technically it’s a mosaic of geometric designs that form squares and triangle shapes with wood pieces. Before installing parquet flooring in your home, it is best to understand what exactly this product is and examine the advantages and disadvantages of this flooring choice. Let’s find out all the advantages and disadvantages of this material to understand.
Advantages Of Parquet Flooring
Because parquet is made of wood, it gives a feeling of warmth to the area where you install it. The geometric and angular pattern options have made it a choice in some of the grandest palaces throughout time. Because you can customize the patterns and materials, parquet flooring can give your home a classic or modern look. Each tile truly is unique, as materials are combined and then cut before instillation. You are able to customize the patterns, materials, grains, and coloring of parquet flooring making no two rooms alike.
Parquet flooring is an excellent choice for families with young children, who are at risk of developing allergies, and for people with allergies as it’s absolutely non-allergic.
Parquet flooring is more stable than traditional wood flooring. This is because it is comprised of three layers of wood cut at 90 degree angles to reduce movement of the wood. Because the lower layers of parquet flooring are not visible, they can be made with more cost-efficient materials than the top layer. This helps reduce the overall cost of the flooring solution.

Disadvantages Of Parquet Flooring
No matter how well you care for your flooring, it is important that the tiles be resealed, sanded and polished. This is to ensure that the flooring remains beautiful and looking new, as well as to boost their lifespan.
Because parquet flooring is made of wood, it is susceptible to moisture and humidity. That said, it is important that you manage the humidity in your home and keep parquet floors dry.
Like with other wood, parquet flooring is susceptible to scratches made by small, sharp objects hitting the floor. When that does happen, it can be challenging to restore the original look. For this reason, it’s not advised to wear high heels on parquet flooring, and to use doormats or rugs at entry points.
