Parquet flooring is experiencing a real comeback lately with those discovering it under their carpets restoring it. Although Florence’s new parquet range offers a slightly different style to the traditional checkerboard pattern, the 3 strip staggered arrangement has a decidedly modern appearance with highly defined panels due to the bevelled edges of the strips that make up each floor board. Remember however that this is engineered flooring so you still get the rigidity and stability that a 3 ply core offers with a stylish parquet real golden oak surface.
The unique colour of this golden oak flooring is one of its key selling points with an utterly warm, yet slightly dark golden brown hue. There is a high contrast in colour between certain parquet sections with a range from gold to light brown colours and between different cuts of the timber with some containing summer growth rings and some containing characteristic knots. Remember that the lengths of the parquet pieces in each 2200mm long floor board are randomised to help achieve that staggered appearance.
This variety derives from the rustic grade of the oak used which gives a vibrant and diverse surface. The 3.0mm surface oak parquet layer of this 14.5mm thick floor has been brushed to accentuate the texture of the natural grains and features. This has then been finished with a matt lacquer for a durable, yet natural looking protective coat that is scratch resistant.
Another great aspect of Florence Parquet Golden Oak Matt Lacquered Bevelled Strip Flooring is its ease of installation due to the relatively large 270mm wide and 2200mm planks. Adjacent floor boards simply slot together using tongue and groove and can be secured together using a glue adhesive and then either laid as a floating floor over an underlay or fully glued down to the substrate. This Florence parquet flooring is intended for all rooms of the house including the kitchen, hallway, bedroom, lounge, dining room, conservatory and lounge although unfortunately excluding the bathroom or other wet rooms.Florence Parquet Golden Oak Matt Lacquered Bevelled Strip Flooring,
