If I had to a pound for every person that said they remembered parquet floors at their school thirty years ago, I’d be a millionaire! The truth is, parquet can be quite an old-fashioned look, particularly our Antique range, which is distressed and is intended to have that ‘aged’ look. But these beautiful, classic floors have made a huge comeback in the last few years, and it’s easy to see why. They don’t look out of place in a 100 hundred year old cottage, but equally, look just as beautiful in a new, modern house.
The blocks are laid unfinished by fully bonding to an appropriate sub-floor, then are given a very light sand to remove any glue marks. Next the floor is cleaned, followed finally by finishing with Hardwax Oils to complete the look.
