So, you've decided to go with parquet – good choice! This type of wooden flooring is extremely ornate and durable. In contrast to floorboards, which consist of large-sized wooden planks, parquet produces a captivating impression by using a mosaic of small pieces of solid wood, called parquet blocks. There are any number of laying options, depending on preference and budget. Generally speaking, the more complex the pattern, the more expensive it will be. Thus, a simple design consisting of large, wooden planks laid in parallel would certainly be one of the most inexpensive parquet variations. On the other hand, a pattern composed of numerous small elements that need to be meticulously laid will be more expensive. Here we give a brief overview.
