UK: Parquet Flooring: Manufacturers & Suppliers
ABOUT PARQUET FLOORING
Parquet flooring is made up of wood blocks, typically 230mm by 70mm in plan, and 20mm thick. Traditionally, parquet flooring blocks had straight edges. To avoid shifting and lifting, modern parquet flooring blocks have a tongue and groove edge. The traditional pattern for laying parquet flooring is the herringbone. Other patterns include basket weave and ladder. The most common timbers used for parquet flooring are Oak and Pitch Pine. Other timbers include Iroko, Maple, Teak and Wenge. Reclaimed parquet flooring is available; it makes a floor with great character. Leading UK suppliers of parquet flooring are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.
