Parlez-vous Parquet? Cause we sure do!
So, just what exactly is Parquet Flooring? Though Parquet (pronounced par-kay) Flooring may seem like some super-complicated type of flooring made from the horns of unicorns and trimmed with gold, the reality is much simpler. Parquet floors are simply floors that have a geometric design with no curves. Basically, it’s a floor that has various shapes, but not curved ones, like diamonds, squares and triangles set up in a way that they make a unique design. To illustrate this type of flooring, think of a chessboard of better yet; think of a flower with straight lines instead of curves.
This intricate flower design, along with many others, has picked up popularity over the last century, and they’ve become trendy to the point where many people want this type of flooring installed. Like origami or a mosaic for hardwood floors, Parquet requires the touch of a true expert. Parquet can be much pricier than regular hardwood floors because of the tedious process when individually composing the slabs of parquet-flooring but an alternative option to custom installs of parquet flooring is, pre-finished or factory-made parquets.
Parquet Flooring Fun Fact: Parquet grew in popularity when in 1946, the Boston Celtics were the first NBA team to use parquet flooring as their official basketball court at the Boston Arena. The team later moved, including the original parquet flooring fully in tact to their new home, the Boston Garden in 1952. After it’s demolition in 1998, pieces of the original parquet floors were sold off individually as souvenirs! Check out this sweet picture of the floor on Wikipedia!

There are even bonus options that you can choose, like EPA-approved “green” flooring and heated flooring-compatibility. The Parquet option is almost always custom-made, so naturally we would charge an additional service fee for that option, but it’s not as much as you would think. There are even more options that can be considered with unfinished flooring, as this type of flooring will allow clients to customize virtually every aspect, including: species, thickness, stain, color, finish, and even gloss level. All of these options and more are available to our clients.
